Cool, nice to meet you Valisa DeMello.  I just requested you on FB... I'm a vegan as well and have a PDC from the Center for Bioregional Living in the Hudson Valley NY.  I also have worked with large and small farmed animals for CAS and others.  I would be super interested in learning more about your vision!

I'll also leave my info here https://www.linkedin.com/in/cbrunsstyle

I have PDC, housing and am available now.
I'd love to chime in here and join forces.  I just got out here from FL and am amazed at how much happier I am out west already.  I'm from upstate NY with several years living in the city.  I feel your story and am digging the pictures.  I have a PDC and am here looking for work and a place to park my van and cat.

Let me know if you came up with any land access here.

I can see there were several small trees in between the larger.  Thanks for the tips about the wood, this is very useful information.

Florida (32 degrees-ish).  I regularly grow crops throughout my orchard 12 months of the year.  Cool season crops like carrots, beets, lettuces, cabbages, etc. do great under the shade of my fruit trees throughout the heart of the summer.



Thanks so much for that detailed, and thoughtful response.  I have only visited on bike and it was kind of a drive by situation because I could not get in.  It is a 7 acres fully row cropped with pecan trees and some of them are certainly smaller than others, but they are young for sure.  I like how it is oriented, the property line in the back (north)  provides a great treeline and share.  I have a concern about the next door neighbors.  They also have a small pecan orchard, but the places has trailers and  a mobile home, some trash and cars out front.  I'd want to buffer that with bamboo and other fast growing trees and shrubs.

I'll certainly do what you suggest, thanks so much for your time.

Ken and Casie thanks so much for sharing your experiences.  I was leaning away from it but you all have given me so much to think about.  Thank you sincerely.

Hello Wayne, thanks for the reply.  If I were to start from raw land I would never have row cropped them so tightly, but the land might go for a reasonable price and come with a potential crop yield so here I am.  I think they are old enough to survive goats.  I like the way you are using the space, thanks for the input.
