Farm description

Farm Background Information: Farm is comprised of two pieces of land (95 acres and 65 acres) side by side. It was a commercial farm for lumber and fur trees (Christmas Tree) but previous owner's daughter sold it to me in 2016 after her father died and she moved to town. House & barn with five acres lot is sold to my neighbour and 95 acres of land only was sold to me. Current Development: I bought two-bedroom mobile home, added a covered deck of 60 x 14' along the house. Two-story garage is added last year with a big pond. This year a green house is bring set up. Currently no one is living there permanently. Two persons (one girl and one man) are working there during the day time to take care of plants and land. Future plan: This is a retirement home for me where I prefer to offer like-minded people to built and live as a commune. My vision to see the place as a natural farming place where people can grow their own vegetables/fruits and raise livestock. Currently around 12 out of 165 acres land is cleared which can be increased based on use. I prefer to bring matured person who is nature lover. Natural farming by using composting (no chemicals)/organic means for permaculture. This is totally raw land to be developed as per need. My vision is to develop a semi off-grid living project where people can experience Mother Nature, country living, meditation, yoga, permaculture, sustainable organic farming. I will prefer to bring few families with different farming background and interest to make this place diverse in sustainable living. More information about me: I work away from the land. I visit the land once or twice a year. I am planning to develop the land in the meantime when I retire and live there permanently with like-minded people / families who love nature, environment, spirituality, humanity... I am a hippie-minded low cost / minimalist person who do not compromise on safety and hygiene. Travelling is my hobbie. So far I travelled 49 countries of this diverse world. My commune partner(s) shall be -family oriented person -environment conscious -nature-lover -minimalistic -respectful -non-political, non-moralist and generous. I hold and practice similar character. I enjoy happy life with hippie mind and spiritual soul. No religion, No politics, No discrimination, No so-called morality......bare naked HUMANITY and EXISTENCE only. Although I love mindful conversation on every topic if it is relevant. Old classic music is my favorite. I love Bob Marley life philosophy and so his songs. I prefer minimalistic modern life. I love conversation on life philosophy based on Zen, SUFISM, sustainable living, organic gardening/farming, permaculture, Buddhism and OSHOism, healthy life-style. I love comedy and romance movies, book reading, outdoor activities, wine, country slow music. Sometimes, I am odd and approach the world differently. If you are still interested to be part of this commune / project and want to know more, please message on WhatsApp +14039194140
