[before_listing images= youtube=null] Hi, we are very eager to move on some land and begin our road to being self sufficient and off grid. With that being said I’d like to begin with what we are looking for: solar and wind power, vegetable gardening, hunting, working with and around farm animals for what they provide, i.e. Chicken, milk and meat etc. And we would like to do this on no less than 10 acres, if we do it ourselves we can settle for 5 or 6 acres. We would also like to keep it around the South to South west Tennessee and the north east to North Central to North West Alabama area. Here’s a little bit about me: I hunt, have knowledge of dressing an animal, I can build and also have knowledge of growing plants, trees, and vegetables, my wife has medicinal knowledge, can cook, jar and preserve food, and likes harvesting of vegetables and fruits, she also can clean like a madman haha. Me and my wife both drink on occasion and we do smoke socially, we’re trying to quit the smoking part ( cigarettes). If this sounds like something you would be interested please feel free to email me @ and we can discuss some ideas and plans thank you and we look forward to hearing from you…[landbuddy_listing youtube=null]

    I see you are local to where we want to go. We are in middle tn area now. We are looking for a like minded community. My husband has solar experience and electrical. I am a mom of four who is practicing agriculture in two acres under I feel more comfortable.

    My fiance and I are just starting our research on the subject of going off the grid, but I know in my bones it’s what we want to do! We would really love to talk to you and your wife and I guess… pick your brain? Chris is a carpenter and I’m really interested in learning about medicinal herbs and soapmaking. Gardening and livestock raising as well. If you’d like to talk, you can email me. :)

    Looks like I’ve come to the right place. Great minds! A few folks and I are in the planning stages of an ecovillage down in SC. We convene via telephone every other week. Plans are to go completely offgrid within the next 2 – 3 years. The land has already been acquired. Our website is 98% complete and I will send to you if you are interested. Go ahead and email me at if you’d like to hear more about this venture.
