Then be kind while you let them know you'll do the best you can to help them out while you are looking for a place to go. Make it clear that you can be cooperative but that being pushed won't make the situation move any quicker. Keep paying them. If they cash the check, they can't boot you easily. The other option is to ask them to PAY YOU to leave. It may be in their best interest to pay you to leave. They could pay a lawyer to fight you for the next 4 months while you squat in protest or they can make it easy for you to pay a moving company to neatly move your stuff and make a down payment on a new rental.
Be nice but don't let them walk on you.

Have you started your own thread? I'd be very interested in watching you "grow" your property especially if you post pics! I'm a sponge!
If the OP is still checking in here once in awhile(the thread is a year old) I hope you found something that worked out for you. I'm living on someone else's farm right now and have chosen not to put in a lot of work here because my income is very small, I'd never get it back and the owner doesn't want to put any money into this place and I'm not going to subsidize his property improvements. I'm not being cheated in any way. We were both clear with each other and we're good so far but I have to keep in mind that a situation could come up at any time(his death, issue with house, etc) where I'd have the same 30 days notice. I hope you are doing okay now.

Saying that I guess I will just have to learn. If all goes well and I am able to work with the Farmers Veteran Coalition I should have assistance when needed. Saying that, I won't look a gift horse in the mouth too hard. More the Merrier I was taught. I did follow the link to " The Camp ", I have so much to do !!! LOL > I have not walked all of the property as of yet. I was thinking of organizing a big picnic, and giving to a group who produced the best resource map of the property some type of, " I don't know, something. " With my gammy leg it sure would be a major assist. What I think of as a asset, may be only just the obvious. Others may and most likely see things that I would miss and most likely never knew to be an asset.

Dirtwork then well.
Then I guess the fun begins.
