High guys i already have a start to your ideas. i have about 15 acres on one plot of land were i live and about 4 more with 4 small homes on it . I would be interested in finding people interested in a partnership. I will let interested people rent a home for the first year to make sure you are compatible to the situation. I have a three year old orchard two nice creeks, fishing, greenhouse in place. i have strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, gojo berries, and persimen trees. also grapes and muscidines. there are so many opertunities as well. I can also help you find a local job to get you started as well. As long as you help with the garden and preservation, you will eat well. i usauly plant around 4 acres. i have 25 chickens and getting other animals soon. thanks for reading.
