Long story short, married with grown children, happy on a homestead farm. Love to share with young folks who want to learn how to live this way. I teach natural horsemanship and train damaged horses who are rescued from kill pens. My daughter has moved home to learn how to train horses and work on our small homestead farm.

As a local here in Cherry Plain, on the MA/NY/VT border, across route 22 from the Beer Diviner, and East Coast Village, my only question is, are you all still sacrificing animals and calling the kontumble spirits (as advertised on your website.and admitted to the Eastwick Press in the 13 Barbies found on Bly Hollow Road story? ) LOL. Not sure how that type of activity fits into "permaculture."

Kids do make a difference. If you crave country and he craves city, what do the kids want? I followed my dream back in 1994 and now live on 40 acres here in upstate NY. Took the end of my marriage in 1998 and a nasty divorce to stay here. I figured out how to refinance on my own. 15 years ago i remarried a city boy who learned to embrace the country lifestyle. My 25 year old daughter moved back to the farm after 7 years of city life and will build her home on our family farm. Husband and i both hold down full time jobs in Albany Troy while growing a massive amount of food. My daughter and i train and care for our herd of horses and llamas. My advice? Plan your life and follow your dream. Be prepared to go it alone. Believe in yourself. Jules
What a cool idea... sharing land. What are your taxes like? And how about permits for buildings?

I keep going back and forth because this VT land is so precious. But, we have community in Maine and our land in VT is not used.  Maybe we can make a trade, or figure out a beneficial arrangement.

Oh I totally hear you. We care take our land here to ensure we have hay and gardens each year.

That's why we purchased 40 acres here in Upstate NY next to my neighbors 1500 acres, and also adjacent to State Land. We have fought the state to keep them from logging the land, and also managed to keep the poachers gravel pit miners and cell towers off this land. It's a battle. The VT land of 80 acres is enough to protect the center should we decide to build there. Somehow the wind turbines missed our mountain but not by much.

I feel you. I agree with you. We are open to 30 acres or so, there's lots of options in the Old Town area of Maine, we are in no rush to buy. Right now living large, just looking for a parcel so that we can camp out and stay a while with our community in Maine. Should we sell VT I'll have plenty of cash available. If not, we will look at a smaller parcel and keep the VT land.

Hi there thanks for your response. We plan to build a small strawbale house. We have our homestead farm on 40 acres here on the MA/NY/VT border with horses mules llamas dogs cats and bees. We also have 80 acres in VT. Our friends and community are around Montville/Bangor. We are interested in raw land with elevation, pasture, woods and good water. Kind of a small extension of our place here.
