We sold our home and nearly all of our possessions. We left our debatably secure jobs and our former urban mini-farm in search of a larger piece of land and a more intentional and sustainable slice of life. We are hitting the road all over the USA and Canada to look for a place to start our new farm, food joint, and a family. Check out the ‘About Us’ page and the rest of our site to learn more — and please, if you know of a fantastic piece of land, homestead operation, caretaker opportunity, or an old farm in need of saving, let us know!!! We are dedicating our lives to this endeavor and we can’t wait to put our hands back in the earth! …Until then, we continue on our Quest
What we are looking for:
10+ acres. Our ideal location will already have utilities.
Other ideal/wish list features include:
Land previously used as an organic farm.
No recent history of soil pollutants.
Not adjacent to any irresponsible Big Ag, GMO farm, or pesticide-rich area — we will be soil testing.
Within 30 minutes of a major city.
Within 10 minutes of a major Freeway.
Zoned commercial/residential/farmland or in a county where we can legally farm privately as well as run a small business.
Locations/counties without restrictive building codes.
Sloped or somewhat hilly topography.
Established small orchard.
Outbuildings inset from the main road.
Clear riparian rights; near a stream, pond, etc.
Some timber on the property.
Not in a floodplain.
Temperate or seasonally appropriate climate (Though we love to visit; Phoenix, AZ & Alaska need not apply).
Established off-grid, sustainable/green systems already in place.
Obviously, something inexpen$ive would be optimal… but this is subjective, we suppose.
