So me and my partner are looking for someone (or a couple) to come out here to our property and help us get our closed loop ecosystem farm going. We are in our mid 20's, fit, and able bodied. Our goal is once up and running our farm will be completely self sustaining, youll never have to leave the property for food, feed, fertilizer, water, etc. We have 2 acres in southern ohio to work with. We already have a tiny home and 2 RVs on the land. We have also built a small greenhouse to test out aquaponics in.

So we are looking for someone (or a couple) that is willing to come out here to help. We are looking for people that are open minded and not set in their ways. Being flexible is very important, life likes to come at you fast ya know! If you are anti gay, anti smoking, or consider yourself a religious person then I can tell you now it wont work. We have moved past what society says is correct and incorrect, that is nothing more than propaganda at work. We live our life by the beat of a different drum and we love every minute of it!

So thats a quick rundown about us, what were doing, and who were looking for. If your interested in knowing more PM us or reply to this thread and we can start talking and see where it goes!

Thank you for your time and we look forward to hearing from you!

Figured it was time to give this a little update.

Things have been moving along great out here on the farm! We have added a few more animals to the farm and we have some awesome new plans for a few earthwork projects this summer too.

As time goes on we are really seeing the need for some additional help out here.

With all that being said, we are still looking for someone to come join our farm. If you think you might be interested please let us know, we would love to hear from you!!

Helllo hello, Me and my partner are on the same hunt for like minded people. Also in our mid 20`s from Canada, this is our third year traveling around farming and have started thinking it would be nice to settle down for a while.

We have contemplated the idea of buying land but traveling farmers aren’t the most well off and private land doesn’t really interest us that much. My partner and I are looking to start working towards building (or joining!!) a community centered small scale ‘farm’ ( for lack of a better term) . We want to help move a community closer to self-sufficiency by growing food, brewing beer, baking, working with materials found locally to build eco houses and alternative structures, working toward having a free school; creating a learning space for people in the community to come share and learn from one another, growing a medicinal garden so people needn’t rely on pharmaceuticals, learning how to personally reuse the things we consume and not just send them AWAY & to treat natures gifts as exactly that and not as ‘resources’

if you think you guys might be into the same stuff we would love to talk. And we are also super open to new ideas.

over and out,

dakota

Hello! I too am a 20-something looking for a more natural and sustainable existence, and I'm interested in checking your farm out.
Sounds like you have a great place, just curious what you mean by anti-smoking being a problem.

Otherwise, growing food, baking, brewing, and building are all things that I thoroughly enjoy. Any openings in May/june/july?

Hello, Kevin!

We live in central Ohio. We're trying to live as sustainably as we can. We'd like to come look at your farm and see what you're doing. Let us know if that's possible.

Thanks!
