Are you just about ready to make THE move once you find your perfect prepper homestead community?

THIS could be the place you’d love to live even if the world never collapses … but if it does, life here will still be wonderful.    It is just so much simpler to thrive (not just survive) in the gorgeous North GA mountains.

We would love to share our beautiful, peaceful  176 Acres of pristine hardwood forest, pastures, and abundant spring creeks with a few pleasant, like-minded, well-prepped Christian conservatives who will love living here as much as we do… and who will cheerfully pull together to thrive through whatever comes.

Will be selling only a few tracts for each person/couple to have their own private homestead of several acres, with lots of space for their gardens, animals, etc.   The majority of the land will remain natural for enjoying common gardens, orchards, hydro-projects, ponds, never-ending pure spring water, firewood, deer and turkey … and forest trails for hiking, horses, and just relaxing. Also very open to ideas like ‘cohousing’ and other innovations; it’s a big property.

BUT… Just what makes is THIS land a “Perfect Prepper Paradise”?  (aside from us nice folks, of course ) Glad you asked!  :-)

Perfect Climate:   Our local mountain ranges create a wonderful micro-climate around us… four lovely seasons, and our moderate summers and winters are even milder than the counties just above and below us.  No humidity and no need for air conditioning with a good design. I (Rebecca) designed my mostly glass passive solar home (heated only by the sun and my wood stove) and have not needed AC in 20 years! Our growing season is very long (Planting Zone 7) with plenty of rainfall and lots of sunshine. Lush green everywhere!

Perfect Location:  Ellijay (in Gilmer County) is a truly beautiful and sparsely-populated agricultural community in the gorgeous, green mountains of the Chattahoochee National Forest, about 40 miles south of the GA-TN-NC  border.

Our ranch is off the beaten track near the end of a quiet dead-end road where you can vanish into your own private world. Extremely peaceful, private yet convenient location… quiet and secluded, but not dangerously remote. Truly God’s country.

We’re about 14 miles from the Southern Terminus of the Appalachian Trail and 8 country miles to Ellijay, a very friendly small mountain town with mostly like-minded conservative, self-sufficient and welcoming people.   Three clean mountain rivers wind through the County; great for tubing, kayaking and trout fishing.

It’s a wonderful place to live and enjoy while life is “normal” and a very safe place to be if everything collapses.  (Think “Mayberry” in the mountains with a strong Constitutional Sheriff!)  Small family farms are abundant:  apple orchards, vineyards, organic grass-fed beef, chickens, etc.  Our neighboring family farm (4 generations) raises delicious grass-fed, hormone-free meat animals.

Perfect Land:   All the features you could want on one gorgeous piece of land!  This 176 Acres is blessed with ALL SOUTHERN Exposure, rich brown ORGANIC soil, and abundant gravity SPRING WATER… perfect for gardens, greenhouse, pasture, and Solar-designed homes!

Numerous pure drinkable, never-ending mountain springs, creeks and pond sites run through the land (we own to the watershed at the ridgeline!).  Plenty of drop for ponds, hydro-power, even fun projects like waterwheels.

The ridgeline runs along our North property line for great protection, which means ALL of the land faces south.  Several acres are already in pasture and open for gardens, orchards, etc.   The majestic old-growth forest with huge mature hardwoods, laurels, ferns and abundant wildlife is a serene sanctuary and provides great hunting (deer  & big turkey).

Because of the mountains surrounding our dead-end horseshoe valley, this location provides a lot of natural security, so we don’t have to be highly “militarized” (although security, military and gun skills are highly valued and needed). But the very best security is living in the right place… and being prepared for anything.  We can even shut off the only dead-end road coming into our mountain-surrounded valley if necessary!  The few neighbors living on our short road are assets; have their own provisions and would pull together for protection.

Most of the acreage is level and rolling up to high level plateaus with great mountain views!   The pastures are at 1750’ and the highest peak on the property is 2100’.  Excellent cell phone and high-speed internet coverage; cable available if you want it.

Perfect Homestead Tracts: Perfect because you’ll help design the perfect homestead YOU want, situated around the large natural areas set aside for common use.   Minimal sensible covenants will protect your investment, but not run your life.  I’ll work with each individual/couple to determine what area and how much land they want to buy for their homestead and then customize their tract to meet their desires.  Whether smaller or very large acreage, there are so many great choices here.  Obviously, the earlier folks will get the widest choices. Prices depend on the size and features of your tract, the terms, etc. All land is slightly different, so we’ll work out each case individually.

Us NOT-So-Perfect  (but pretty  darn nice) Folks:  We’re mature (at least most of the time 😉 ) friends, two separate singles and a couple so far, who have been prepping for varying lengths of time.   TEOTWAWKI can occur for any number of reasons, so we’re preparing for most anything and need a few more solid preppers with the skills to round out our community.

So far, we include a nurse, massage therapists, and many skills including beekeeping, canning and preserving, solar home designer, site planner, Master Gardener and Naturalist, general carpentry and repair, and experienced homesteading with livestock on this land.  We’re steady in a crisis, determined hard workers, easy-going, and love to laugh!  Good sense of humor and a creative, cooperative attitude are required!

In addition to working together on common or individual homestead projects and for mutual security, we want the solid foundation of a community built on good-natured, reliable, supportive friendships. Really get to know and like each other, quirks and all, by making the time to get together for cook-outs, games, music or whatever is fun!

Solid, caring friendships can be the glue that gets us through the rough times. Although we’re all strong, independent personalities, it is paramount to have a compatibility of attitudes, faith, ideas and goals so we’re all pulling in the same direction when it matters most, with the least amount of friction.   We’ll discuss compatibility as we talk individually.

I have lived on this land for most of my adult life and hung onto it through thick and thin “for just such a time as this.”   Been prepping since 2005 (lived here since the ’80’s) and have already been living a very simple life here for many years. I could go off-grid with a bit more time and effort; that’s the goal.

Over the years, I designed my passive solar home; built a pond off one of the springs; have a gusher of a well, plus back-up gravity water from another pure spring high up the mountain; cleared and fenced the pastures (have horses and a llama). You can do that too!  The others have moved nice travel trailers here to stay in until they build their homes.  Each person will have at least a year’s full preps stored away as quickly as possible (meaning soon).

Perfect Time:  Lately, it seems that the world is rushing even faster to compete for which disaster will be the first to hit the fan. You’ve been thinking, planning, looking.  NOW is the time to act.  Time is short, so if you are interested, please contact me very soon to discuss all the great possibilities.

Send me a PM here or email at:   MtnsofGa [ at ] gmail [dot] com.  I look forward to talking with you soon!

Rebecca  (BTW… Did I mention “Paradise”?? :-) )

Hi, My name is Renee. I am a 24 female nursing student. I live in Louisiana.I have 2 sons. I am new to prepping and knowing that anything can happen is what helped me decide to start prepping.  So, like any parent I would like to have a safe place for my family just in case SHTF.

I am looking to start a prepping group/community. I would like to have a large mixed group of open minded people from all walks of life.  Your race, age, religion, material status, family size or where you live will not matter. As long as you can offer a skill or two you will be welcome. and for those who don’t have skills you must be willing to learn. I would require a background check from your local sheriffs office, I’m not trying to get all in your business. I’m just trying to make sure everyone would be safe.  If you would like to explain anything you will get a chance to do so.

I would like to buy some land to build a bug out community. i am currently designing an above ground community and an underground retreat. I have started looking at some land in the Midwest states. I figured that would be the safest place in any SHTF scenario. I do like the land in Missouri.

If you are looking to join and you have land and you would like it to be used let me know.

I know most people don’t want a large group for various reasons. I figure we are all adults and are we are all trying to do the same thing ( have a safe place). so why not work together. It would hurt to have a lot of skills in one group. Plus if we did have to go underground we would need a lot of different people for social reasons.

So if you are interested in this, email me at ladavianw [at] icloud [dot] com

Sixty year old 30 years SOG, JSOG, & Black Ops experience has small farm on 157,000 Acres of federal land – Southern Appalachia. Not looking to save hundreds, just maybe a few like minded people perhaps. I am disabled and need help gardening, canning, cutting wood,  building, cooking, and general preparedness planning and drills. This summer I need help digging a new root cellar. I am also making a non  GMO seed bank. I have a home, access to another home, possibly also a log cabin as well. Water comes from a spring.

Not interested in lazy people, know it alls, smokers, druggies, crazies, or scam artists. Peace, love, and joy has its place, and hippie types would be considered as long as they understand that I am old code and carry a gun. My land, my rules. Not a democracy but a guy that needs help with an already working game plan and is willing to share his knowledge, time, and preps in exchange. Single or family considered.

Will arrange a meet at neutral location with very interested parties. Could use a good electric person.

Hello to everyone, I just joined the site and I’m thankful for your time. My name is Phillip, I’m a 56 year old male and in good health. I’m a veteran, I’m married with 3 grown kids. I’m searching for a established group with land were I can help build and contribute in any way it make us a safe refuge from the gloom that the world has turned into. I live in Arkansas and willing to relocate and have travel trailer to live in until a solid structure can be built. I’m willing to swap may labor and devoted time for a place to stay. I’m self employed so I can devote all my time to helping.My wife would be joining me but not at first. I want to do a meet and greet and willing for the group leaders to do a back ground check on myself. I have 40 years of being a mechanic and I can do welding, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, heating and air, refrigeration work, gardening and have experience living in the country around horses, cattle and most farm animals. I by no means saying a know it all and will be open to any ones help as life is a never ending learning school and adventure everyday. all I’m a very avid hunter, fisherman and just started trapping this winter so I have a lot to learn as far as trapping goes. I’m a very avid outdoorsman and have experience in living off grid. I still need to keep learning and am wiling to learn. I can provide a list of on hand materials and equipment to offer. I’m willing to work right beside any one who has the desire to make things good for all of us. I’m more than open to questions and suggestions. Thank you for your time and hope to hear from a good solid established group or start up. I can be reached here or at midnightrider2158 at yahoo dot com. Again thank you to all Phillip

I am in Southeastern Ohio and I am new on here. Looking to meet like-minded people.

Basically I have a general knowledge in a lot of survival/prepping skill sets. I also offer a good deal of knowledge on construction, farming, hunting, fishing, trapping and maintenance. I am wanting to start my own group here on Ohio.

I have been reading and researching different groups and also different survival communities.

Looking to meet new people and form new friendships. Basically looking to network with others and other groups, exchanging ideas, beliefs,  knowledge and setting up a communications network. Always looking for new members. Strength is in numbers we all know that. These way its going in the world today….who knows when the SHTF is going to happen.

Contact me anytime

We are a group looking for other groups  who are looking to make some alliances and willing to work together if the SHTF. We would also like to share ideas and hopefully meet up for training. It never hurts to have groups all over the place so that way if you have to leave your area then you know you have another group who can help you out and get you back on your foot. Our group has a lot of experience with firearms and camping just to keep it short. If you have any questions feel free to contact us and I hope we will be able to work together. We are looking for groups from NC, SC, VA, TX, GA, and KY really any states near North Carolina. Contact me at jernigan09@yahoo(dot)com

We are a Marine Veteran family. I have served in both Iraq and Serbia as an infantryman.  I am a CQB and CQC instructor, as well as a water and land survival instructor and have taught Aboriginal living skills to risk youth and their instructors. I am extremely rich in skills and ability, while poor in resources.  I am going to recruit and build a network of Veterans.  Infantry and other direct action unit Veterans will be given preference, although we will need all skill sets( ie. I can weave a bird net while talking to you, but repairing a radio is beyond me).  We will not discriminate because of religion or race.  A Vet is a Vet is a Vet.

The world stage and environment are crumbling at a much faster rate than I anticipated 10 years ago. My son was born 8 months ago and I refuse to force him to do what I’m doing now 25 years in the future less resources and a worse sitrep. If we, as Veterans and father’s, do not do what we all now see as necessary, we simply pass the buck to our children and I won’t allow that. We all took the oath. It is time for us to fulfill that oath.

I send all of you peace, joy and love this holiday season, just don’t forget your Glock. -Mike and Erica in Ky. Out.

We are a couple in our late forties looking for like-minded homesteaders and/or preppers in the Owen County KY area. We are working toward making our five acre property self sufficient and sustainable within the next five years if not sooner. We are prepping for possible economic collapse and associated social and financial upheaval. My background and skill set leans toward military, communications, and wilderness survival areas and hers are primarily medical and animal husbandry. We are looking for individuals interested in networking for knowledge sharing, barter, trading, mutual support, and fellowship. We do not intend to bug out unless absolutely necessary and our property is geared toward remaining in place as long as possible.

We are looking to start a Christian Midwest bug out group, with approx 30 families from Illinois,Indiana,Kentucky, and or Missouri.We must limit the individual campsites to seven family members. housing must not be permanent should someone present a problem down the road and is voted (off the island] camper or skid is fine. Each campsite will share  work load as we will rotate by campsite.  we plan to be self sufficient and off the grid location is off the path and game is plentiful unlike other bug out locations who do not want you their until it hits the fan. we encourage all members to show up often to ready your home and know your neighbors to build a good rapport. If this is your desire and plan to be part of a functional family for the long hall please respond a.s.a.p.  thank you and May God Bless.

Hey Im Mallory I’m 21 and all the prepper groups ive found don’t do much prepping, id really like to learn more about guns / how to use them along with a few other skills. if there are any other preppers / groups in southern IN or around Louisville KY that wouldn’t mind teaching me a few things let me know – Mal

Sep 152014

My wife and I have been peppering for about 2 years. We about have bug out bags packed and ready to go. We are looking for other prepper groups in the Louisville Kentucky area to hook up with.

Aug 302014

I’m not sure if this is where I’m suppose to post or not.  I’m on my phone and its hard to tell.  My husband and 16 month old son and I live in Louisville ky.  We are looking for other Christians in this area that we can connect with.  We just moved here and have nothing as far as prepping goes.  I’m nervous and really would love to have the security to know that we have a place to go when things begin to happen.  We are both in our late 30s and don’t mind hard work.  Our families are several states away.  Thanks and please don’t get too angry if this is on the wrong spot.

Aug 182014

Our profile says it all.  Ultimately we have a few hundred acres in the country and seek a couple / family that share the same concerns.  Just in case something happens where you need a safe place for you family, a place you can raise your own food and be self-sufficient for civil unrest to subside…Please…read our profile.

Obviously if you’re here, you need something.  If we’re here, we need something.  If we have all this land, equipment, security, you should already figure out what we need a little of.  Here is the hint again – We are teachers.

We are a young 30 something Christian married couple, with two young children.  We are looking for like minded preppers, to converse and learn from one another in preparation for the NWO.  We believe we are living in the end times just as it states clearly in the Bible, and would like to collaborate and formulate some type of strategy for survival.  We believe there is power in numbers.  We are debt free with available funds, have adequate food and water supply(what we think is adequate) and supplies for most realistic scenarios.  Our hopes are to move out to the country and be self sufficient if it is in His Will. Hope to hear from someone at least to possibly advise and direct us to others.

Looking for a prepper group in the Louisville Kentucky area, or those interested in starting one. Started prepping some over the last year. I’m in my 30s married, with a family for Christ. Would really enjoy meeting others in the area. It would be great going over thoughts, ideas, gear, and so on. Would love to be able to one day get out of the city, live off the land, and such. Hope to meet others real soon!

I would love to be a part of a group in the Nashville area. I am a single mother with 3 children still at home and my 70 yo mother. I have a good knowledge base of survival having been raised on beef farm but I do lack the ability to pull it all together and implement a total plan. Being able to spend some time around like minded people would help me to be able to build my knowledge base to better prepare for providing for and protecting my family.

Throwing out feelers in and around Meade County (including our neighbors across the river in Indiana) for like minded families.  My wife and I are 30-ish former military living in rural Meade County. We have been prepping since moving here 3 years ago and our emphasis is on homesteading and self sufficiency. We are Libertarian leaning and as such try very hard to to be nonjudgmental. That being said, our rural community seems to be less “A Country Boy Can Survive” and more “It’s Free, Swipe Your EBT”, which has come as a huge shock and let down to us. We’re feeling pretty isolated at the moment and would like to connect/network with others who share a preparedness mindset.

Apr 252014

I am new to this site and was hoping to join a group or start my own at some point. I have just been doing a minimal amount of prepping but I plan on putting in a little more effort. I work a lot so I don’t have much time for prepping as my time off is committed to my family. My son is almost 2 years old and is the catalyst of my want to network and prep. In an ideal world I would like to actually work with others who prep. This may be a little unorthodox but if anyone out there knows of a place of work or owns a place and is a prepper please let me know as my current job is definitely lacking. If not I would like to just network maybe set up some times and places where we can all meet. Maybe a restaurant or something.

Environmental Health and Safety Engineer by trade, I’m well informed and educated and prepped. NOW I need to find groups in my area with which to work. Please contact me if you have further info. Talk soon…

I have learned to make butter, make lye soap and my own laundry soap. I am working on making shampoos. 😀  I am what most would call a Jill of all trades. I know carpentry, plumbing, & some electrical. I know how to operate a chainsaw, put up fences and drive posts, pull and back up a trailer well and drive a standard shift truck (dad says that is important) I know how to hunt, fish and trap. You can email me at either kysurvivormom [at] yahoo [dot] com or farmingowl1 [at] gmail [dot] com   I look forward to hearing from you

I ‘m a 59 year old woman, blessed with a great farm in a great location, but I need friends! Been here for a long time but I don ‘t know any preppers or homesteaders around here ( near Burkesville). It’s not really practical for me to drive long distances. I don ‘t care what age you are. I’m a Christian but not very conventional or dogmatic. I ‘m into herbs, good health, books, history, sheep. My two youngest kids are still around (ages 18 and 22) but they ‘re into their own things.

We are Christians my wife and I are retired and debt free with monthly income (long as the economy last).  We are ready to prep full time and move to an area with trees and some rain to join a group. I have my own tools and equipment, food, water filter, some weapons and ammo, camper to live in till living structure is built.  Looking to build a rammed earth living structure.  Will need at least 1/2 acre to build and live on.  We want to help others do the same, also willing to work on the common area preparing it for when it all falls apart.   I also have the material to build a shop with metal roof.  I have two sons (19 & 28) and a wife all in better than average health.   No medications required for any of us.  All are on board for this. Thought we had a place but didn’t work out so we need to get out of the city.  We currently live in a irrigated desert which is running out of water.  When power is gone water will be gone as will civil order.  I am a Nam Vet.  We have building experience, some electrical, plumbing, welding, machine, metal buildings & roofs, mechanic both gas and diesel, solar hot water system, semi truck driver, reloading experience and equipment, certified gun smith (passed a test),  and other.   I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  I lived at a mission base with my oldest son for two months in the Amazon with out power so we ate meat only when we had caught or killed it.  Lived in our camper one year on the road along the eastern coast from Niagara Falls, to Beaumont Texas then on to El Paso and Las Cruces N.M, then Sholo to Sahuarita, Arizona while home schooling.  We are debt free and looking for a group to connect with and then relocate.  This will not be a quick process as we will need to get to know each other (although time is short).  Don’t need decoder rings but security is an important point before we consider joining forces with others.  I have much more to share but will do so in a more privet way.  So contact me then we can talk privately.

My husband and I are looking to purchase a farm and equip it as self-sustaining.  Thought Kentucky would be far enough away from DC and was concerned about the ability to farm in WV mountains.  I supposed Maryland is a possibility ?  concerned that you couldn’t get far enough away…

Pretty new to this but frightened enough about what I see going on that we have decided to invest in a “bug-out” location and equip it.   Any suggestions as to locations where there are plenty of like minded folks ?   Also would like to make a trip out there to look at properties and was hoping to correlate that with attending a preppers meeting in Kentucky or TN.  are they posted anywhere ?

I have three young adult children, one in law school, one in college and one is a senior in highschool.   I am 51 my husband is 56.   Both of us have engineering degrees.

We currently live in the DC suburbs in a nice neighborhood within walking distance of a lot of not so nice neighborhoods.   also if there are realtors or folks selling property on the blog we would be interested in that as well.

I believe in God but am not especially religious.
