Marisa Lee wrote:Hello! I see this isn't currently the most active thread, but still wanted to say hey. I'm on six (mostly wooded) acres in rural Bayfield County. My first summer here was just observation, and then this past summer I started with a small garden and a small flock of chickens. We'll see what comes next!

There is a cordwood house right on Highway 13 but I don't know the person. And there's tons of small-scale permaculture around here, or at least (as you said) permaculturish stuff. Something about being on this little liberal hippie peninsula leads to people being very interested in sustainable & clean alternatives, though admittedly it is not super close to where you're looking at land. I'm sure you will find kindred spirits there, too!
