Mission Statement:
create sustainable group
Community Description:
Have 100+ acres of hardwood & rocks, w/plenty of water – supremely defensible – need partners to develop. Beautiful rural area, some farms/tiny villages surrounded by thousands and thousands of acres of public access forest.
20 mi.s from tiny resortish village for odds & ends of employment – ski areas for one thing.
15 mi. from a very greeny/hippy small college town that is the county seat (also for employment as needed), has all sorts of Ag. Stores & a farmer’s market as well as a decent hospital.
I have an excavator, and a farm tractor w/a loader, finally bought a dump truck  to begin developing the land into a defensible farm retreat.
Also have bandsaw mill, woodsplitter, all construction tools & equipment – generators, etc., etc… 30 yrs. as a carpenter/builder/developer before becoming a realtor (know development regulations/procedure) .
Meanwhile continuing to develop present 6 acre mini-farm 1/2 hr. away for gardening & animals until big project is more under way.
At this point there are others who are interested, and I have placed 2 big travel trailers on the land . One to be enclosed in a solar double garage for temporary housing for myself . Your temporary housing would be welcome if you are in sync w/me.
No offense but please don’t contact me unless you are seriously considering a move to a group in a safer place, and please understand that my project is not developed, and will require a lot of physical work, but also – you will be on the ground floor, so to speak.
Thank you, and good luck to you all in this New Year .

  1. what is the elevation there?

    • Probably 800 – 1000 ft, but not sure . It is 1550′ here where I live now 1/2 hr away . There won’t be any flooding any time soon .

  2. How soon are you looking for people I live in Wisconsin looking to relocate I am a gunsmith and fabricator by trade also have taken care of farm animals most of my life

    • Well that would depend somewhat on you. There isn’t much going on at the land right now – expect to be there doing sitework come summer .
      More help means more done this building season .
