Greetings!  I have a farm and a store in the MN/IA area.  I am looking for people who want to move to, or simply stay in one location long term, where they can find a sense of purpose, make an impact, be of service, make a life for themself, and become established in a community as a homesteader, herbalist, gardener, animal caretaker, beekeeper, fermenter, brewer, baker, builder, constructor, entrepreneur, holistic medicine maker, or survivalist prepper, or maybe even all of those things rolled into one!  And with the right woman, (probably in the 35 - 50-ish range) there might even be a chance for love and romance, too!  I am not necessarily just looking for romance, as I would be interested in working and networking with an assortment of people who have the skills and interests I just listed, as it is likely going to take an army of people to deal with what we are all facing.

The farm has over 500 of varieties of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, berries, herbs, flowers, and native or natural plant species, many of which have medicinal value and uses. The store has a commercial kitchen and freeze dryer, at which a part-time job on the side as an actual paid employee may be possible, for the right person, and I also vend at a farmers market, where I have an established customer base, so there is an unlimited amount of things that you can do, make, market and sell here and derive income with, if that is of interest to you, and if you decide to leave, you may be able to take a supply of things with you when you go, providing that you did the work necessary to generate such supplies.

Let's be real, honest, logical, and realistic about things here.  In 2020, and the years thereafter, we have all witnessed how fear, hate, and the threat of sickness, death, disease, racism, gender dysphoria, violence, abortion, and all kinds of other divisive issues were taken advantage of, and used in many evil ways to change, influence, manipulate and exploit, not just the outcome of an election, but people's finances, mental and physical well-being, interaction with each other, and life as a whole, all of which has resulted in far-reaching damage and impact, the extent of which may never be fully realized, known, quantified or understood.  I trust that you have enough awareness and common sense to understand that there is no telling what might happen or be done in 2024 and beyond, to influence another election or to change people's lives even more in desperate attempt to get the axis of power and control in the world to be tilted even more in the favor of those seeking greater power and control.

There are several campsites available here, as well as a cabin, along with other possible accommodations.  I will go into greater detail if you are interested, and if we make a good fit!  Please no smokers, or anyone who has any habits, addictions, or impediments that will interfere with their ambition and ability to think and do things!  Thank you!

Be careful not to talk, excuse, or justify your way out of something before you even get started, otherwise you for sure won't ever do it!  Where are you from?!

Hello just wondering wxactly where at this is? I've got a few skills and self teaching holistic medicine at the moment and a 16 yr old son. I  Am not looking for romance however your words sound spoken from my thoughts alike. I already have about 19 hens, a dog and a cat that I just wouldn't want to part with. I have a bottle calf however probably won't be able to bring him. At the moment I currently work in the computer industry however my passion is with plants and animals. I'm passionate about self sustainability and cohabitation with nature. I believe to do it right like it sounds like you are that it does take a village.

Hi
Thanks for posting this. I have experience homesteading and living off grid in half a plot within a semi urban town on the outskirts of the city. I have been able to set up an urban homestead within a conventional 2 bedroom building. I installed solar systems and generate biomass and source wood for cooking. I have skills such as sun drying fruits, making soya milk, gardening, composting and rainwater harvesting.
I am fit and athletic, don't smoke or use drugs. I can share pictures of my current set up if you want.
I have worked as a teacher and researcher in areas like plastic recycling and food processing.

Interested in finding a male partner or a community of homesteaders to join

Wow, first time here & first post I read: you had me at: Greetings! I am very like minded and came to permits in search of a location for riding out late-stage capitalism with all it's destruction. I'm a little on the other side of 50 but new friends who aspire to homestead, learn & grow nearby never hurt!
