Land Sharing near the NY, VT, MA border

We are looking to start a permaculture project in New York's capital region, and we are open to going a little further east towards VT or MA (and in many ways VT is preferable). If you already own land here and want to discuss sharing options, or you want to buy a plot of land together, I am open to discussing different arrangements. We currently raise ducks, laying hens, meat birds, turkeys, sheep, goats, and pigs and would like to turn these efforts to profit within the next 2 seasons. We are native to this area and have a lot of connections that will serve to significantly reduce our infrastructure costs. In addition, we will be selling our home on 7+ acres in order to become mortgage free, so adding our nest egg to the equity we pull from that should be helpful to finance the project.

Ideally, the person/family who joins us has something to offer we lack--more farming experience, extra money, a hands-on understanding of forest gardening, etc. But even an eagerness to create a permaculture property in this area is sufficient. We have a large family, homeschool, and want to see permaculture turn into an eco-friendly and profitable way to live. If you are interested, email me at

Don't sweat petty things, or pet sweaty things. But cuddle this tiny ad:
