Our place is a Sharestead which encompasses 3 individual land sites all in close proximity. We have large organic gardens, chickens, ducks, geese and bunnies. Our commitment is to live as organically as possible and a lot of our infrastructure is off grid, We have a working sawmill which is used for producing our own lumber for on site building projects. Several adults on the property are teachers, permaculture design managers, and have tons of experience with off grid living.
We do not sell anything for profit
