Additional Information

Description

We are trying to turn this property into a homesteading community.  We have a lot of experience and are looking for motivated, creative individuals to bring their ideas to the table.  There are various living arrangements on the property.  We are less inclined to be interested in straight work trade as we already have that covered.  Ideally looking for people to rent a room and use the land and co-farm with us.  Feel free to be in touch so we can brain storm some ideas!
