Hi we are a family of 7. We just started homeschooling are children , my husband is a computer engineer, I a sahm. We are a laid back family that really wants to buy land and live off the grid. We ideally would love to meet other families who would like to live off the land. Grow gardens, raise live stock ,sew clothing ,can food . We are nonsmokers, nonreligious, but respect others beliefs as long as they are not pushed on us.just looking for fun happy families not afraid of some work. Willing to consider getting land any where.I grew up on a farm, my husband is a out doors man fishing ,hunting, I am learning to can and sew, I majored in child development and am homeschooling.

We’re a family of 7 that are about to move offgrid. We’ve been homeschooling for the past 6 years and have been raising goats and chickens for the past year. We’re going to a community that’s going to sell us an acre. There’s room for another family to go as well, there’s no children there right now and we’re wanting other kids for our kids to be around. If interested email offgrid@mail.com

hey Nicoal:

I have 2.5 acres not far from you now. Off exit 164, about 4-5 miles from 75. I have worked on clearing for past 1.5 year, with goal of off grid aquaponics system. Some unplanned life events have redirected my time, energy and $ off this for now, so If you are interested in that area let me know.

Hi, this sounds very interesting! I’m actually casting for a new documentary style series for the Bravo network & would love to cast a family that either has been living off of the grid or is making the transition into it. They must have kids. Please email me for details & visit our website for more info! kathleen(at)punchedinthehead(dot)com

Thanks!

Hi Nicoal,

Tonight after dinner I got it in my head to google “live off the grid with like minded people” and this is the page I found. I was so excited!

We are a family of 3, and still hoping to grow our family. Our daughter is nearly 7 and we are homeschooling her. We too are laid back, non-smokers and non-religious, and my husband also works in IT. He grew up camping and doing all things outdoors. I did not, but I crave it so intensely!

Since getting pregnant 7 years ago, I’ve been smitten with the idea of living off the land, off the grid, in harmony with nature and homesteading. Admittedly, my homesteading skills aren’t the best, but my desire to learn is great, so that helps. In addition to the things you’ve listed, I’ve also taken a great interest in natural and alternative health, and I love the idea of making my own herbal remedies and tinctures and healing potions. I find it all very exciting. If you’re interested in talking, please do email me at trisha@usgrp.sent.com. I look forward to hearing from you!

Hey there! We are a homeschooling family in Port Charlotte. From your comments above, it sounds like we have much in common. There are four of us in our family. If you would like to get together and meet one another let me know. My email is: shanapri.geo@yahoo.com
