PermacultureGeezer.com (check out our burgeoning blog) here with a land for labor share in the wilds of far southern Indiana. My wife and I are in our mid to latter sixties developing 10 acres of forested hills, ridges, ravines, springs and probably a cave or several. We are currently clearing the front few acres of mature, Southern Yellow Pine trees. We are planning to buy a Granberg chainsaw mill and process the logs on site for our house and a cabin for you, along with other structures as needed.
This is a most magical place. We're roughly three hours south of Indianapolis and an hour west of Louisville. Easy to get to but very remote. No walmart, fast food, no stop lights, just four way flashers. NO BUILDING OR ZONING CODES. A population of patriots that mind their own business, but are friendly and welcoming to new neighbors. The attitude is best stated by our elderly neighbor and dear friend: "I can't farm without the help of my neighbors". Bob R We are well connected to the larger community. We served on the first board of directors for The Lost River Market and Deli https://www.lostrivermarketanddeli.com/
in Paoli Indiana, 30 miles north of our current location. Check out Orange county, Indiana for a true wonder of the golden era. https://www.frenchlick.com/hotels/westbaden
You will be rendered speechless. This place was in ruins 20 years ago, the dome had mostly collapsed.
We offer space to build a campsite to be developed into a home site with access to the gardens, food forest and ponds as we develop the infrastructure.
We own the land outright and have improved it over the past 13 years. We installed electricity and county water. Plenty of space to hack out a space of your own. We are well tooled and equipped for this momentous undertaking. We are first rate scroungers and have a large shipping container full of new Pella windows and assorted house parts we acquired on the grey market and stashed for this build. Of course, there's plenty to share.
We expect you to negotiate in good faith and hold to your agreements. We will commit to doing the same. We will work out legally binding, enforceable contracts as we progress. We have much experience in business law as we're life long, serial entrepreneurs that have learned the hard lessons of trusting the wrong folks. Believe me, we will not make that mistake again.
We are loving, generous people and know we are looking for a Unicorn. Are you the most unusual creature that will find a home with with other unusual creatures, human, animal and spirit that call this hallowed ground home.
Enough rambling. Check out the links I buried in the text and we'll start an email exchange. I'm a writer by nature and compulsion. You'll get several points if you are as well.
