Ok.... 20 acre off grid homestead would like serious minded people who understand what is necessary or are humble enough to learn what is necessary. I started 5 years ago doing it solo with no to very little income and have made much progress. Animal husbandry had been main focus but am now beginning to produce the " self sustaining" projects in crop production. Parcel is unique making choices difficult and challenging. Sloping to the north with benches and sun exposure. Year round stream and springs that don't freeze( at least as low as-22f)
Neighboring parcel had proven 7 distinct ecosystems some of which are not found elsewhere for hundreds of miles...seeking interns, lives in transition, newly awakened etc etc etc..
Skills include but not limited to construction of pens animal housing and such and gentle handling of the livestock.local fauna range from frogs, snakes and salamanders to mountain lions, wolves and grizzly bears. The HES is 160 acres completely surrounded by usfs and 9 air miles to town 17 by road so it's shorter if you fly... Located in the Kootenai national forest, lower Yaak river drainage. Dig it!
Hello Eric! What is it like to wake up in a painting everyday? Well we actually live in one ourselves but it's in norther michigan. Sounds great but we are huge Ohio St. Fans. All joking aside we are currently caretaking 100 acres. We love the land but the land owner wants more for the land than we are willing to accrue in debt. So we are in search of the next relationship/oppurtunity. If the oppurtunity is still available please contact us. firstname.lastname@example.org
My names Jessee 2 months ago I was shot in Iraq on duty in the army I was medically discharged and was one year in to sniper training. And now that I know what I do about the state of the world and the economic situation my wife and I are looking to get out of the city and live off the land I have a lot of tools and experience in most of jobs on a homestead I grew up in a small farm town doing all kinds of farm work raising animals building barns pens coops. My dad was a carpenter and I've learned a great deal from him with tools and ways to build I have taken a few courses on building log cabins and living off grid. I think I would be a very valuable member to the group as I can hunt and butcher many kinds of game and I'm a hard worker. My wife doesn't have much experience at all but is very eager to learn and I will work even harder to carry both our weight. My email is email@example.com
Dunno how I missed this but BY ALL MEANS contact me if you are still interested. Work load is decreasing with the advent of winter coming (at least scheduled and expected workload... Catastrophic occurances to exercise ones mind and adaptation are year round fun...!) 2015 growing season prep is upon us!
Come get some!!
Young couple moving out of Dallas this month, read 2 of Joel Salatin's books, ready to just start a new life away from the city and begin a homestead.. We have sold one of our cars, downsized quite a bit and our lease is coming to an end this month. Would absolutely love to visit and see if we are a good fit, I am 26 my gf is 21. We are both very motivated, not alot of experience in permaculture but we crave this lifestyle! Please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org we can send some pics and hopefully get a dialouge going!
Incidentally, I'm also looking to get out of Dallas - and will be visiting MT in Sep/Oct. Perhaps you don't mind meeting up, at your homestead or on some neutral territory, and chatting things up?
If you don't mind, please PM me, I can then tell you much more about myself, my experience, etc. Thank you.
