What Jim said.  Who will be responsible for clean  up?  What kind of sanitation, camping, parking is needed.  How close to restaurants or motels?

As mentioned by the person referencing Joel Salatin, I am on of those old farmers with land and cattle.  I have been looking for some time for a hard working, intelligent, willing young person to partner with me, take over the chores and inherit the farm.  Opportunity often comes disguised as hard work.

I am looking for an apprentice/partner on my 171 acres in SE Ohio ~ where there is little snow and the winters are reasonably mild. If you decide to expand the geography, give me a shout.

Anyone else interested in farming in Ohio? Cattle, sheep, ducks, goats, geese and chickens, with room for more.

I see so much about people not being willing to let go of control . . . but . . . why would anyone who has sacrificed and worked and earned some land be willing to just let it go?

Knowing how hard it was to acquire . . . gives a certain amount of life experience and "rights".

I know several older people who are willing to share and boost the next generation. But, of course, that comes with certain expectations. We all go into relationships with expectations. We go to school, take jobs, get engaged . . . all with expectations. Matching up the expectations does not seem like it should be so hard. Several older farmers are looking for someone to grow food, take care of animals, take care of the land . . . create a wage . . . and all of them tell me they can not find young partners who are willing to make the commitment and work hard.

I really don't understand why there is such a dichotomy of perceptions.

I have land. I'm looking for some young people willing to put up the sweat equity to get the farm going stronger. Hilly, SE Ohio, property is fenced and currently grazing cattle and sheep. I have machinery.

Is that 50K DOWN? ~And~ a 2500 a month mortgage for how long?

50K is a lot to risk if any of the other 80% flake. Or have difficulties . . .
