I saw some videos a few years ago posted by a company who makes cabins with off grid utilities already installed. I think they were about $40,000 total.

Even the washing machine used rainwater. Or maybe it got water from an AWG. I can’t quite remember.

There are no coding limitations on building in my state in most counties, so I’m not concerned with that.

It's hard to calculate cost based on spacing on Missouri's website with trees alone. That came out to less than $400 per acre on its own. Gotta try and fit the rest of this in as well, though. Should the rest of these be planted just a couple years later, or many? What percentage should I assume will be eaten by fauna so I know how much more to plant for myself? Like, if I want to eat x-amount, but they will eat 1/2x, I need to plant 2x.

I am not worried about labor costs. I will plant it myself.

I checked out the state’s website. Great prices, but largely non-edible. What are some nurseries folks order from to get plants from each food forest layer?

How many acres does that cover ? May I ask how much those plants all cost in total?

The forest I planted in WV was pretty big. Off the top of my head, I reckon I planted about six or seven acres per day. I’m not sure what the boss was paying for each sapling.

I have experience planting hundreds of thousands of trees in Canada, the US, and Australia. One in particular was a permaculture food forest geared towards local fauna, and wasn’t geared towards human consumption at all. This was near Cheat Mountain in West Virginia. Where I’m looking at property is in the Missouri Ozarks on a natural body of water, whether it be a creek or lake. I know I can plant over a thousand per day at a very comfortable pace working sunup until sundown. This time does not take into account transplanting mature trees.

In creating a permaculture forest consisting primarily of perennials, how old should such trees be at planting time? What kind of care will they need for the next few years? I want to plant the forest with all possible layers, including mushrooms. Also, any clue whatsoever as to the potential cost per acre? Saplings were decently cheap that I planted before. Bear in mind Missouri has four distinct seasons.

Thanks!
