So I’ve got to throw this out there-----anyone want to buy/build/purchase a 30 acre farm with us??? Its got an old farmhouse on it–in good shape—we don’t need the house, we have a house. We are interested in the land. So we are open to the idea of partners and there is a place for those partners to live.
My big thing with this is protecting the land to the highest degree possible. I’ve been reading the website at Four Quarters InterFaith Sanctuary and I really really like what they are doing. I’d almost say we could just use their example as a whole and use it ourselves. Of course things could be changed if need be but I really think they’ve got a good thing going…
This is from the Four Quarters website: " A t our core, Four Quarters is The Land.
A sacred place in the Alleghenies, set aside in perpetuity as a Sanctuary for Nature… and for People.
A lasting home for Earth Based Spirituality."
If we were purchase this place it would be to protect the land and that would mean I’d like to write some sort of covenant that would forbid either party from ever selling it. I don’t think land should be a commodity. Anyways ideas would be to purchase land start a market garden like Jean Martin and run pastured poultry like J Salatin as the 2 big ideas to generate income. Other ideas could easily be added. Then of our salary/profit I would envision keeping the bare minimum necessary (2 K a month?) and donating the rest to the community…
Anyone interested in any capacity don’t hesitate to private message me or write back
Thanks so much!
