I am from Pennsylvania, eastern part. Many small farms and homesteads with a good population of anibaptists like Amish and old order Mennonite around here. My SO and I have 3 properties one 4A farmette with creek and fencing with horses and goats. One 3.5A wooded in oak and hickory , one farm of 14A some pasture some wooded with creek some sloped, good assortment of large maintained outbuildings and horse barn. We are working to hold these small acres as the area around us turns into parking lots, condos, and big box stores. We are older and starting to switch from boarding horses to thinking about planting for permaculture, habitat, and building the woods back up as we cut back on pasture. Just want to leave the land better for having known us for a while.
Loretto, are you still on permies? I don't see any posts from you for over 3 years. My family are from the Bucks area along the Delaware River and have been looking for property to settle with a permaculture mindset. We plan to place a sustainable passive home that we can pass on to our daughter and the next generation. I was hoping you could share some insight.
