It's an exciting and overwhelming time for us. As Fela says, "the point of life is have no fear!"
Moreover, we're looking to grow our community. We are currently three (Joana from Portugal, Loren and I from northern Indiana). Ideally, we'd have between five and ten people living permanently on our land.
PM me if you want to speak about how we interact with money, our larger vision and design, etc.
We are three people (Joana from Portugal, Michael & Loren from Indiana) on 62 acres of paradise in KY near Berea!
The land has unlimited potential. Limestone-filtered freshwater springs that we drink straight from, 50-something acres of Appalachian mesophytic hardwood forest, 7 acres of meadow, caves, waterfalls...it's a nature-lover's playground!
We're just beginning there -- the land is undeveloped with no structures. We're building a log cabin (we're natural builders).
Excited to invite more people to visit and see if it's a place you want to call home!
Hi Michael, Loren and Joana...... Please look at our post... titled "Do you want to share your land"..... here at; https://permies.com/t/53324/SHARE-LAND-experienced-mature-Homesteading ...... and let us know if there is an attraction to perhaps live together there on your Kentucky property...... the reason we have avoided south/eastern states, is because of the 'chiggers' and ticks.... because we like to be outside, barefoot most of the time..... How is it there for you guys..? I think we have a lot in common and share a lot of the same values.... thanks, Sunny and Sequoia
This sounds very close to what I would love to do in life. I love being outdoors and learning anything I can. I have grown up my whole life in the woods or by a creek, lake, river, or pond. I hunt and process all my own game animals as well as catch and clean my own fish. I have extensive knowledge on wild edibles especially for that area as I have grown up most of my life in central Ohio an hour south of Columbus and about 2 hrs northeast of Cincinnati. I know morel mushrooms. When to find them and which trees to look around. During spring in Ohio I spend most of my time foraging for morels and crappie fishing. I also love to cook which is also a reason I like hunting and gathering I know what I'm cooking and what I'm cooking with. I have many skills and very self motivated...this is a dream of mine just don't have the finances to achieve it by myself. If my interest strikes up any questions or you want to talk more feel free to email me at email@example.com for further contact information..thanks for time in reading this
