Located on the outskirts of a small town but within 15 mins of 2 major towns and within 30 - 45 mins of the areas of Portland and Augusta, we are really in the middle of it all. Plenty of part time and full time job opportunities... looking for maybe 2 or 3 singles, couples, or small families - (single parents welcomed as well) looking to have a share in a small scale homesteading community. We have a couple dozen acres of land with a mix of farmable and woods. I have a potting shed, tiny indoor greenhouse, chicken coop, and some gardens started... so many more plans in the works.
Looking for long term interest after an initial one year lease with the opportunity to build your own tiny home or cabin on the property. You can take it with you, if it doesn’t work out or if you would like to move on... or maybe we could buy it from you? Minimal monthly financial contributions per person to mainly pay for taxes, insurance, emergency fund, utilities, food storage, supplies, equipment and tools. Once the property is paid off the contributions can be lowered or eliminated depending on how well we can become self sufficient as a tiny community. Must be willing to have a background check, supply some references, and be interviewed. No illegal drugs.
Feel free to ask any questions and I’ll try my best to answer. This is a relatively new concept for us and I may not have all the answers just yet but maybe we could work together to figure it out. There is a pull toward this direction so I’m going to give it a shot!
Let me know if you are interested...
Thank you in advance...
Best wishes on your efforts Lizzie. Looking forward to hearing how things work out....please consider posting updates.
If anyone is worried about our winters up here...yes, they are a bit long, but it gives you time to rest, reflect on your progress and plans, sit by the fire, snow shoe through the forest along a river, etc. Maine is the country's most forested state and is very beautiful. It's a short trip to the ocean or to the mountains. Also, a decent number of permies up here.
