My name is Robert Hines. I am 38 years old. My wife Hannah and I are looking for a motivated, dependable, HEALTHY couple to share 20 acres of land with in Middle Tennessee near Macon County. As of now the land is completely free of any structures. There is a natural spring but city power and water is NOT available in this area. we will NOT be requiring any kind of cash payment to come nor will you have to pay to stay in the future... we only ask that you be willing to work hard and bring ALL of your resolve s this will NOT be easy.

Hi, Robert, I've been looking for several months now to find 20-50 acres in central or eastern TN to start a permaculture farm with other liberty-minded homesteaders.  I have another family with girl 8 and boy 7 who have thrown in with me to share the land and the work and we're looking for a few more people to join us.  I'd like to set-up some kind of permaculture community.  But your offer looks quite interesting also.  If we don't have to buy the land, we will have funds for equipment and building our homes debt free.

I'm currently rehabbing a century+ old house in Maine to raise some cash to buy land here, but I found the winter far too long and growing season too short.  I shovled snow almost daily from Oct 15-April 30, last frost date here is Memorial Day!  Decided my old stomping ground that I loved as a kid is just too darned cold for my liking nowadays, so TN is my next choice because I have brother in KY, niece and nephew in Nashville and Knoxville, and son in VA.

Would you consider sharing your farm with us.  Or do you know of any vacant land nearby, preferably adjacent to yours, that we could buy and share each other's equipment, tools, skills and labor.  I'm into permaculture forestry, ponds, water routing (swales and the like), orchards, veggie gardening, mushroom growing, pasture-raised chickens, and building barns and sheds.  I'd like to build a passive solar earth-bermed cob house with natural roof on a south-facing hillside, a cob pizza/bread oven, solar dehydrator and the like.

My partner is big into solar (with a full operational system where he is in Massachusetts) and wind power, rain catchment and cisterns, and mechanical stuff.  His wife is an avid organic gardener, and the kids are excited about "helping", especially with the critters.

Hi, Robert, I posted a reply about 3 months ago, but I haven't seen a response.  I'm still interested and will be in TN next week looking at listings I've saved from Zillow and Craigslist in Central and Eastern TN.  I'd like to pop in and meet you while I am there.  Please contact me at two oh seven 746 eight five 15 with your info and best day to come by.  Thanks.  Cim
