Greetings!

Brand new to the site but just wanted to put out as many points of contact as possible. I am currently living and working for/with a family( not mine) on a 10 acre organic farm in Niles, Michigan. I started here 2 years ago as an intern and am now managing the crop production for the next two years. I obviously don't have much time to get out with all the things to do around here, nor do I particularly want to with all the things to do around here. I would like within the next three years to be on our own plot with a partner or four, one of whom I would be romantically involved with, making a living and healing some land.

I love adventure and try once a year to go someplace new to camp/hike/sample the local culture. I like to get things done and then sit quietly. I practice archery, cook often, love all plants and animals, play guitar, go for long walks when I can. I drink and smoke socially, though less and less each year. Oh, and Im 5'9" ~ 175 lbs

Looking for someone with any degree of experience homesteading, who is responsible, honest, caring and doesnt take themselves( or me ) too seriously.

Location, Location, Location...Does not matter a whole lot to me. I have friends/partners in crime with similar interests all over the country and I believe in "falling into place". So, I don't set my sights on anywhere in particular. Each place is a new experience, a new challenge. That being said, I would love a pen pal or a local gal, so PM me if you are interested!

Cheers!

Richie

Also here is a recent picture, one of me stuffing my face with some swiss chard I found on my most recent adventure, and one with the friends I was adventuring with.

Hey Richie, I'm in a very similar situation - 31 year old single male journeyman farmer working in three oaks Michigan. I'm actually looking for a wingman for outings to local breweries and outdoor adventures. Maybe we can help each other meet women locally. Also, I'm looking for work on a different farm because this one is not a good fit. Please message me directly if you're interested in meeting or if your current farm needs additional labor for the summer season. Thanks!
