Hello everyone! My name is Jason! I'm a 24 year old male whom is a Veterinary Technician by profession. I just relocated to 20 acres in the Ozarks. Originally from California. I'm very interested in starting a homestead. Looking forward to learning from everyone here. I'm very hopeful to meet and network with other people in my area. If you need ANY help with your projects, i'd love to get involved! Perhaps labor in exchange for education and goods to get me started on my (soon to be) homestead? I come with an open-mind and a free imagination! I have plenty of time on my hands until I find work. I'm not afraid of the heat...or humidity! I look forward to meeting any and all!

Jason, where abouts are you? I too just rolled in from CA and am in NWA. Trying to connect with like minded folks here. Waiting a bit to get my own place and getting to know the area a bit better first. Anywhere near Benton County, AR?

Hey Jason how's it going, welcome to NWA. Me and my family moved here from Oregon about a year and a half ago and we have been slowly building out farm. We are currently focusing on making lasangna garden beds and general upkeep in the garden. We have about 30 20 foot long beds in and about 100 melon/squash mounds. Half of which are planted and starting to put on fruit! The other half are partially done and I'm scrambling to try to finish them so I can plant in by the 4 the of July. I think that's about as far as I can push it to still get a good crop before first frost. With that being said we always welcome anyone one who wants to get their hands dirty to come on down. The idea of a labor exchange sounds awesome. We have lots of veggies, organic chicken, goat milk or I can do some work for you when you find your homestead. Pm me and let's get together for coffee. I've been in contact with a few others who just move here and a few who have established homestead, maybe we could all get together! Well I'm excited about the possibilities!!
