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 acreorganic 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!
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!
Willing to find out what 'impossible' means.
