I am a single woman on an established property.  I am looking for long term families or individuals who want to enjoy and participate in a rural farm setting.  There is a home on the property and I am building 2 more small homes for these families.  I feel like three families on this property would be perfect!  This farm is not off grid but has many possibilities for sustainability.  I have posted videos of the property on my youtube channel.
labeled Farm 1 thru 7.  The homes I am building will be rented for 600 a month until they are paid for.  The farm is located in Ferrum VA.  I want to create a family environment with people who love to garden and appreciate nature.

I am a single female in a very rural area.  I have a Belgian Malinois.  The dog was the best investment i've made in a while.  Pick your watch dogs carefully folks.  There are some breeds that protect by instinct, Belgians are one of them.

I am a single female looking for friends to help me care for 10 beautiful acres in franklin county VA.  The property has mountain streams and many springs. I have already built raised beds, a greenhouse, have chickens, bees, rabbits.   I just can't do it alone.  Would love to talk to anyone willing to relocate and help out.
