FoxMoon Haven is a vision for the future of a cattle ranch located in SW South Dakota. The ranch itself is approximately 10,000 acres of extremely rich soils, open pasture, pine woods, forest meadows, riparian valleys, and amazing biodiversity. Additionally, there are numerous established homesites (some with abandoned, gutted homesteads) wells, and power poles. The ranch is functional, with a traditional cow-calf operation and a few cowboys working on horseback. There is an abundance of pheasant, turkey, elk, and deer. Next door to the ranch is a large herd of "domesticated" bison, and a smattering of residential wild horses make their appearence on occasion.

We have hosted a slew of visitors, some excellent short and (very) long-term WWOOF'ers, international guests, and even overnighters via airbnb! That's just the short of it, though, and ultimately the transition from traditional to progressive that this ranch is looking to make will facilitate a small community (even if just temporary or seasonal residents), food forests (which have already been initiated), small livestock (plenty of infrastructure and experience for this), campers/travellers looking for an interesting off-road adventure, wild foraging, horse enthusiasts, and anyone looking to help build something in a spot that is remote, beautiful, and fully-stocked with natural resources. There are currently some slim accommodations, but by next year we hope to have mobile housing available (RVs), and potentially facilitate any Tiny Housers looking for an interesting place to engage with and live for a time.

Here's the website: FoxMoon Haven.

If any of this sparks your interest, don't hesitate to contact us! All contact information is available via the website. Our interests and ideas cast a wide net -- but don't be alarmed! The task at hand is very much about getting self-sufficient food and energy systems whilst creating something inviting and healthy for everyone involved!
