Hi to all. Im here in NYC at the moment, a Gay man age 59. I just checked the calendar and I'm 27 months from being able to qualify for the modest end (age 62) of Social Security. What to do, what to do? I've tried several time s in my life to leave the rat race, I've bought junk land (my fault--my due diligence was weak), battled with ultra conservative neighbors, the "good ole boy" establishment who obstructed any attempts to engage in alternative home building and pesticide free agriculture. Ive looked at and tried community living twice and found it lacking, due to too much internal politics and too much drama. I've been back in the city 10 years now, working the usual cruddy soul-sucking job, but now beginning to strategise for the time when I have that social security check coming in. In short, I have an idea that I would like to kick around with anyone regardless of their current situation. I therefore would like to propose a partnership idea, a joint business venture, with somebody who has (or is willing to buy) land, but would not necessarily have income for livestock. That is where I would come in. I am particularly interested in raising livestock that many people would consider "exotics", American Bison, White Mouflon Sheep, Blackbuck antelope to name the three primary ones that come to my mind. What about an arrangement where i buy breeders and we split offspring for resale? I have some experience in farming biodynamically but Im not interested in being tied to a property----you want to travel occasionally and so do I, and the more people to provide security (reliable people) the better. Id like a micro house to live in, my needs are very modest. I like warm weather, trees and bush country will do. I have a biology background and have some small livestock-keeping experience. I could go on, but in short, I am proposing a solution to help prime the pump---some seed money to help with livestock while you build your infrastructure---Let me know if this is of interest to anyone. Peace!
