We now have ways of opening homestead sites via very low cost leases AND supplying natural building materials such as unlimited timber, sand and stone for actual "base camp" type homestead development in an 80 acre enclave surrounded by small farms and many orchards. It is a "foodie" paradise. Sites and allotments are available for long-term (99 year) lease with renewals for less than $1,900 per year ... again, this includes FREE BUILDING MATERIALS. Build a sturdy shelter, heated with free wood and surrounded by fine neighbors and gardens. AND BE OUT OF DEBT. Health and happiness in your own free hands.
Additional land for gardens or other permacultural enterprise such as mushroom production, herbal collections and concoctions, plant propagation and woodland services is available at little or no cost in additional to the basic homestead site. Currently building large strawbale and smaller "hobbit houses" in a solar, earth-sheltered concept. Sites are ready for building, or you can choose your own from roughly 20 available.
The "zone ONE" homestead site is 31,416 feet or 3/4 of an acre. Allotment size plots for additional enterprise are limited in size only by the real use-needs of the principals.
Lots of wood fuel for cooking and heating. Free for the gathering. Lots of good graze and fine grass. Water is spectacular. Soils deep and easy to work. Compost from managed treecrops for new garden development. Wood for hugel foundations is also abundant.
No poisonous snakes or insects. No ticks or fleas ... no need for insect repellent. Great for pets and horses.
Free camping (rustic) to check it out.
Located just east of TORCH LAKE (Google image) and Lake Michigan. Maple-Beech complex.
