I will be buying acreage to homestead between Austin & San Antonio (preferably west of I-35) and am looking for others of like mind who would be open to buying adjoining properties so we can share farm equipment, skills, food, etc. and to tend each other's homesteads in each other's absences and care for each other like family when SHTF, in our home life's or society as we know it... Whatever the case may be. You are jumping in with both feet (braver than me!) whereas I plan to start with improving soil first, then trees, berries, buildings, fencing, roads, water harvesting and lastly, add the meat, eggs and milk via small animals like chickens, ducks and goats. Larger farm animals may come into play down the road but the successful homesteaders I hope to be like someday (!) warn against all at once. Focuses on getting good at a few things rather than end up doing badly at a lot of things:) But I'd like neighbors with your tenacity! I have a rock star realtor who happens to be my best friend who will be helping me locate property next month. Some parcels are likely to be farm land getting split up and have adjoining acreage for sale. My budget is max of $300k for min of 10 acres, home, and outbuilding(s). Would you be interested in combining our efforts to create or locate neighborhood of likeminded preppers/homesteaders?
