Trying to make contact with people who have already built rocket mass heaters to utilize in our extreme cold in ND to hopefully visit and learn from so we can put one in our home also.

Who are we? We are a young family of 6 and have a few grassfed dairy cows that are one of the most important things in our system. Their excess they produce from grass alone feeds our pigs and chickens and produces meat for our year. We fill in the rest of our grassfed dairy/meat/cheese diet with home grown veggies and try to extend our season on both ends with planting cold hardy greens so we live more seasonally rather than cramming our already busy summer with preserving tons of food for the other 9 months out of the year. A challenge, but fun to boot, and it keeps our children busy with us. We have bees, laying hens, meat birds, milking shorthorn, dexter cattle are working on an orchard and fruit and a lovely garden on 15 acres. I've been doing this on my own for 9 years before I met my now husband and we have been working on it together ever since.

What part of ND are you from?

I grew up in Pembina county, northeast ND, Near Grafton. I moved to FL about 15 or so years ago and now my wife and I are considering moving back to be near my family. It would be great to have more Permies around to hangout with if we do head back up there.

Stay safe and warm
