You are looking to start a community on your current farm? My family and I are caught up in other parts of the world until 2017, so that may be of little help to you. But, we have been unsure where we want to settle down, but if there was the oppertunity for a community, we would consider that option.

We both grew up in Michigan and want to return to the state but have been unsure as to where, we've been mostly thinking NW LP or E UP. All of the "fracking" going on in the northern part of the LP has been driving us away from that area. We looked at one property that was down the road from a gas operation w/o out realizing it at first and the seller was holding onto the mineral rights and already had an attourney to get his share from the oil company that was harvesting gas from underneath his land.

We've spent some time in the Tawas-Au Gres and Oscoda areas (not much, just summer trips and family who lived there), and have thought about the area, but the oppertunity for a farm business just doesn't seem to be there (which is why we wanted to be close to Traverse City, I think there is a good possible market for that there). Being away from commercial farming operations and connected to forest has been and important factor to us for a clean water collection area for a spring that may be on the property.

Where-abouts are you located? How's the farm-entrepenuer possiblities there?
 
I knew I would regret that burrito. But this tiny ad has never caused regrets:
