Hi!  My name is Candice and my husband's name is Zak and we're ready to start our journey to one day have a full self sustaining small farm. We are looking for an opportunity to learn hands on and work hard for housing. We are looking for a long term opportunity and have a dog and a cat. We are currently in New York but are ready to go south. We have done tons of research and learned what we could from books as well as the internet. We're hoping for something in Oklahoma, Texas, Alabama or northern Florida. We would like to gain firsthand experience in agricultural/dairy farming, ranching and overall farming know how. If you have an opportunity for us please don't hesitate to respond. Thank you all and God Bless!
The Ryan family

I have a friend named Travis Krause with a permaculture chicken and egg farm in D'Hanis, Texas, called Parker Creek Ranch. I don't know about the housing, but I could sure ask...

Hi! We are about to post a "business" opportunity that might interest you. We are starting a farm that we would like to be basically a "teaching model" for people who want to come volunteer and learn bio-intensive mini farming/permaculture. We purchased a beautiful 100 acre farm in the mountains of Costa Rica with this in mind. We would like to provide the land, support, guidance and renovations to create this program, but because of health and other time issues, can not actually do the day to day running of the program. We are looking for a smart dynamic person or couple, who would like to be the program director/s. We can help set up all aspects of the program and provide information and guidance, with this director(s) and then they would run the program. After farm expenses are met, the income from the program would be divided between the director(s) and us, in order to pay us back for the renovations first, then some basic rent of the land from the program afterwards. The director(s) would be given a room in the main cottage,  free of rent while developing the program and once it is fully going, the director can use farm funds to feed themselves and also pull a good income. Our interest in this program is to make some dent, however small, in the fight towards correcting our enormous environment challenges. We are passionate about this idea. Teaching people to build soil and feed themselves in an environmentally friendly way! Let us know if you are interested and we can talk details.     Kat and Jeff  contact us at VistaHermosaFarm@gmail.com     if you are interested or would like more info!
 
You frighten me terribly. I would like to go home now. Here, take this tiny ad:
