I own an 80 acre property up in northern Minnesota. There are 40 acres of woods, 40 acres of open prairie and a river is the southern border of the property. I bought it 2 years ago, built a road, a pole barn, and greenhouse. A well was dug, and propane was installed. That’s it. I have been experimenting with a number of different plants to see what kind of food can be grown in a zone 3 area. What I have discovered is that root vegetables like potatoes, garlic, onions etc. all do REALLY well. I would love to raise chickens and maybe dairy sheep. My idea would be to have a tiny house community. People of like mind. Everyone free to have their own space have their own vegetable gardens, and perhaps work together to accomplish community goals. I am very open to how it will all work. I would love to find young couples, skilled individuals (carpenters, electricians etc) or very hard working types who want to tackle new projects and make things work. I want to share my land with people who want to share their talents. Let me know if this sounds like you.

    Hi Ann,

    I know I’m a few years late to this post. If this is still something you’re interested in pursuing, I’d gladly join you in your off grid community.

    I’ve been planning it myself for over a year now but have yet to pull the trigger on on my plans. This might be the Kickstart I need.

    Feel free to reach out if you’re interested.

    Hello Ann – I am interested in living on your land. Although most of my life, I’ve done security with the military and the police in Michigan. I could be apart of your security team if it’s needed. However, when I am alone my love is to do art in cutting up wood and making furniture. I’ve also taken part in projects doing ready wall construction, building homes on the southwest side of Michigan. I am a professional when it comes to painting, I’ve experience in smoothing concrete as well. I am a hard worker, that’s ready to dig and build. Most importantly, everything that’s pertaining to art, is what I truly love to do. Ann, If you’re still looking for individuals, please send me more information to my email address. Thank you!

  12. Randi

    My name is Randi , I’m 28 years old and my husband Brett is 33, we were both born and raised in South East Michigan although we did spend a couple of years together in Arkansas. Our dog is a 7yr old golden retriever-mutt that is a little shy at first but extremely well behaved, we also have a very out-going 2yr old indoor cat. Brett and I have dreamed of building our own tiny house and living off grid for the past nine years and are finally at the point where our dreams could actually become our reality. Brett has experience working as a roofer, a carpenter, framing, flooring, dry-walling, glass installer, mechanic, farm hand, cook, and some electrical and plumbing. He can drive anything and knows the basics in concrete, hunting, fishing, and farming. I’m great with people, don’t mind getting my hands dirty, understand how to take directions, good at problem solving, passionate about taking care of the Earth, absolutely love cooking, enjoy learning new skills and helping my husband with all his work/ jobs. We think we would make a great addition to any off-grid community and know that if we were given the opportunity to prove ourselves, you would too.

  13. Nate

    Hi my name is Nate.
    I am a 22 year old male and I am searching desperately for something other than the life I live now.
    I am a very hard worker. I’ve been working in construction full time since I was 15.
    I was born and raised in North Carolina. I’ve spent the last two years living in Michigan.
    I just can’t stand the way I live and I find myself every day longing for more. I have went on a lot of back packing trips the longest lasting 8 months. I would love to live off grid especially with others like minded. Almost like a family. I just want to grow and learn without everything in society blinding me anymore.
    I know I’m young and so many people have told me “it’s just a phase” but it’s so much more than that. I can feel it in my gut….this is something I’m supposed to do. Something I need to do…..if there is anyway I could become a part of this nothing in this world would make me happier….please please contact me and I will be glad to go deeper into more about myself. Thank you so much:) my email is n8thehr26@gmail.com

  19. jessica

    My husband and I have been in search of a homestead/homestead community. We are very anxious to live the homestead/off-grid life. We have very limited funds so it has been hard for us. We have done all we can to “start” homesteading on the rental property in which we currently reside. We know that this is not our long term plan, but what we are doing for now until we find the right place for us. Please let me know if you are still looking as I would love to hear from you and how things are going. Thank you so much for your time! -Jes & Joe

  22. Shawn

    Hello, my name is Shawn (Deshawn is my legal name). I’ve recently moved out to Vermont and have saved up almost $7000 within 6-7months from working at a KFC. Before that I did a temporary job on a farm here. I was soon planning to go homeless to further save up money to one day have my own cabin in the woods, but I am very interested in a job such as this. I may be a city kid who is unfortunately a millennial, but I have an old soul that needs to become self sufficient and I love living closer to nature. Hopefully I hear back from you soon to further discuss this. I am smart, despite having no GED, haven’t completed high school, no kids, have yet to get a driver’s license and I have no friends or family. I have no real deadweight, so I can devote myself to your service. My email: Tigerbellyrubs @gmail.com

  29. Need2BeFree

    Hi. This sounds interesting, I don’t know much about gardening, planting, so I’m not sure what a zone 3 area is, but I do have decent knowledge with building, construction, etc. I’m also a strong/hard worker. Chickens and ducks are fairly easy to raise provided you can keep predators away and keep them warm in the Minnesota winters. I’m also a pretty decent hunter and fisher, as well as having some funds of my own to help with start up supplies and livestock if need be

    • Nathaniel Robinson

      This is such a nice idea. I have been trying to do something like this in may country. Get together and buy a piece of land . But no one since to like the idea of growing their own food. I am in Panama right now. And i will like to go back to the States. My 8 years old daughter born in San Diego , Ca. More details on this later. But i will love to part of your community. Keep me posted please.

  30. Ian Jordan

    Hey man, I have been looking for a good off-the-grid partner/ community for a while, but most of them seem a little too established or far under established to be worth the change, but yours sounds just right. I’m a hard worker, and a fast learner, and I am certainly someone who’s alright with living on very little.
    I’m more of a solitary person, but I do enjoy company and people to work with. I am willing to build my own living space and all, but I don’t have much money or experience, ready to learn. All I really need is four walls, a roof, a hard floor, and that’s it. If what your looking for is a financial partner, I can’t help you, unfortunately. I’m dirt poor, probably barely able to afford the trip up there, but I can work as hard as necessary to earn my place!
    But, I do have some questions
    Do you have a power source? solar, wind?
    Do you have any septic system whatsoever? That’s alright if not, but making one is a skill I would like to learn in advance, lol.
    How far are you from the nearest town?
    and lastly, would I get assistance in building my living space once I got there?
    I could gather the materials, but I have never built a living space before, so I would need to learn.
    Thanks alot,

  31. EARL

  37. Ed Meyer

    Congrats on your choice of living, I did a 9 month “survivalist” experiment near the Minnesota Canada border a couple of years back, mostly with only what I carried in my backpack. Managed the winter just fine without electricity, gas, running water…Even when temps dropped to -40f for almost 2 weeks, I loved it! Was able to hunt most of my food. Was not aware at the time of the wild availability of rice…or I would have taken advantage of it. I had minimal solar power, skills at building with what nature provided,(Shelter, Fireplace etc), and some pretty extensive experience at camping\hiking which I had obtained in 3 different countries while growing up in the 1970’s…But had never undertaken a challenge such as this one. Seriously plan on returning to the life as soon as I can….Maybe better prepared this time though. So many people don’t understand the beauty of solitude nor can they appreciate the wonders that nature provide simply for the asking! You can see more about me by checking my profile. Hope all goes well for you, but I caution you to be careful of those that you choose for your community…Half will likely not have the initiative nor stamina once the rose colored glasses and initial euphoria wear off. There are many dangers…but those are far outweighed by the peace and tranquility one can achieve once the acclimation process is complete.

  42. Steve

    My name is Steve and I really have just had it with the “rat race” of life. I have some outdoor experience because of the fact I was a United States Marine for some time. I am laid back and get along with pretty much everyone. I don’t mind hard work and actually prefer it to sitting around all day. I was on the verge of pitching a tent and living in the woods while living off the land, but came across some of these websites and just wanted to get more information. I hope you and they are what they seem, just good people trying to live a good life. Please email me back and let me know if this is what it seems and how to get started if you are.

  45. Troy

    Hello my name is Troy, I’m 22 years old. I was in the military for a couple years so I have some credible knowledge in survival, mechanics, wood work, and team building. Although I realized too late that the military is a deeper version of the ‘prison’ I was trying to escape from, It was the very experience that I needed to realize what actually matters, and it sure as hell ain’t Money!! So email me at prizopes69@gmail.com if anyone is looking for someone to help build a truly free community.

    Hey sis,

    I am looking for a place to park my tiny home. would love to talk with you. What town are you close to?.

  47. Joshua Babcock

    Hi. My wife and I lived off the grid for close to a year. It was a gradual process. But much of it went very successful. From building barns and sheds, to raising chickens and crops. We used solar power and a generator for power. And hand pulled well water and used rain collectors. We had to leave this home in september, though. The land was given to us by family. Who never followed through with the deed and then made us leave. So now we live in and apt. We sold everything to live that way. And lost all of it but our border collie “Bandit”when we had to leave. Most had to be sold or left behind. But we loved the lifestyle. We currently are considering backpacking since we lost it all. But would love to find people and a place to live this self sustaining life again.

  48. Bob the builder

    Hello Ann, I am 39 years old with 21 years experience building and remodeling homes. I have have been obsessively researching off grid living for years now. I have installed many off grid systems in northern michigan on cabins, and small homes. I am very experienced in all aspects of buildning, including rough framing, log building, electrical, and alternative electrical sources, water collection and storage, off grid heating and cooling, after 21 years building, there I want any project I cannot handle. I am an avid hunter and fisherman, experienced in organic gardening, composting. I have old school work ethics, and actually enjoy the challenge of hard work. I am a born and bred country boy who has been caught in the city way too long. I am ready to fulfill my longing to be away from the chains of society and living life purposefully. If you are still looking for people to help you make your off grid community complete, please email me at jeremyyoumans011@gmail.com

  49. Jessie

    I am interested. I have many skills related to off grid living. Please email me. Jessie.bogart@gmail.com

  50. Erik

    Im simple so this’ll be simple. Ill just give you a short bit about me and my skills and just hope to hear from you. I am young 26, i grew up in a not very nice city and joined the army At 17 to escape which as expected was just another prison. Since my discharge ive kept outta trouble and worked my fingers to the bone for the things i have but frankly i just want to hunt and fish and be free of money im not happy unless im in the woods. Im currently a mason, brick and mortar, but ive learned some things with the little time ive been on this rock other than that. I lived on a small cattle farm after my discharge with a friend and his family where i picked some things up that may help with what you hope to accomplish. I am a adequate hunter and tracker ill never profess to be the best. My second stepfather taught me pretty well in whats left of the forest in southern New England. And i hold basic knowledge in most construction fields and pretty decent knowledge of irrigation and botany. I confess i am not a master of any paticular skillset but i do think you would find me a worthy addition to your tribe. I plan on building my tiny home in this coming year buying land and attempting to do exactly what you and finding a small community to share it with although i am a introvert i do enjoy the company of others from time to time. Your land sounds beautiful miss Ann please feel free to contact me anytime erik.desrosiers1@gmail.com i dont know how often you have access to the internet bit i hope to hear soon!

  51. Denise Lopez

    Hello Ann, I am very interested in joining you. I’ve always felt like i didn’t belong and I’ve always done things differently than everyone else around me. I’ve been searching for an opportunity like this for as long as I can remember. I am a very fast learner and a very good listener. I don’t have much experience in gardening but I am willing to love and care for any plants and trees you may have or want me to grow. I have also been dabbling in making healing oils and learning as I go. I also make my own kombucha and have started fermenting my own sauerkraut. Excite to learn to do so many other things like canning and fermenting other foods. I would LOVE an opportunity to help out and live on your land.

  52. Beth and Marc

    My brother and I offer basic electronic and outdoor skills. I have had my off-grid medical supplies and camping supplies, he’s 55 and I’m 59 and strong for our age. We are both interested in going away from all of this, (and I’m guessing you know what I mean). My brother and I have been collecting things to live on the land for some time and ready to live life as it was meant to be lived. Looking for like-minded people that are ready to go.

  53. Cass Wohler

    My husband and I are very interested in your post. We are in our early 40’s. He is ex-military and extremely skilled. I am a former RN. Very handy hard-working and imaginative. Please contact us as soon as possible…thank you…Cass and Travis Wohler…cwohler2017@gmail.com

  54. Jack ridlington

    Hello there nice to see people are still at it! I lived off grid on a bus as part of a group for just over two years, as low impact and self sustaining as possible. I’ve worked as a welder in dockyards through winter whilst living in said dockyards and so have some mechanical experience, I’m also good with alternative energy solutions, I’m by no means a brain box nor pure Braun (more the first), but I’m capable. I lack funding! For the past year I’ve been living the life of a nomadic hermit really as I can’t afford to purchase land. However as soon as someone with land is found I make a good worker and builder requiring no pay, just a love of the life and a need to be out in the country.
    I’m only 23 but not quite typical, I’m incredibly polite and l work until my back is broken and hands are raw but my fault being I’m rather solitary, not unsociable though!
    Since the group is been with disbanded and people returned to town life I’ve very really been a little lost and wondering, forever looking for”that spot” where I can build my own little self sustaining eco bubble without fear of the council finding my haven and tearing it down before moving me on.

    • Erik

      Your a inspiration friend, keep at it and you will find your true home, as i hope i do. I like seeing and hearing stories of younger people going off grid, my only regret is not making the decision sooner.

  55. Amanda

    Wow, you have so many responses! I’m not ready to go off grid yet but what you’re doing is amazing. I hope that when I am ready I find someone like you. Light and love

  56. Eric

    Hi I would love to start a new and meaning full life off grid. I don’t have much money don’t even believe in it. But of course being apart of society your forced to have it.
    I would just love to live as just a human being of this Earth and live happy, stress-free and content. I am a hard worker and willing to learn more by handon experience. If you can help or have info please email me zynixx30@gmail.com

  57. Andrea

    Hello Ann,
    Personally, Im tired of feeling like Im not living my life to the fullest. I feel very unsatisfied and I would like to do something meaningful and worthwhile, while also learning new skills. The off-grid way of life has been very appealing for a few years, but Ive found myself struggling with how to begin. This seems like a great forum to try and reach out and make something happen.
    Im a 32 y/o female. No husband. No children. I also dont have any special/specific skills that would make me stand out. But I do have an open mindset and a great work ethic. I would love to help you and others obtain this wonderful goal.
    Thank you :)

    Best regards.

    I realize you were looking for a team/Couple to help your vision , I am not in any relationship and I’m not real young 33, but as far as off grid survival and skills I’m your woman. trained certified and licensed in building and residential building and project management. As well as living solo in the woods by the Missouri river for quite sometime. I however have more then enough knowledge to obtain employment amongst the tax payors and such however I choose to work volunteer services only in return for such things bartered. I have lived in this manner for years making me much more humble and satisfied with the simple ways. I believe this is the year to make my life catch on and to become my dream achiever and aim for the stars. It would be better if I was surrounded by like minded individuals. truly the one neighbor you shouldn’t let slip away. Rustina

    Hello Ann-
    I am also interested in this idea you are representing. I’ve wanted to go off the grid for a few years now. I can offer a massive amount of gardening and herbalist skills. Herbs are always in my gardens at home. Sewing of household goods such as curtains, blankets, sheets, pillows .. coverings. I am a great cook and love organic, canned, naturally preserved foods. When I was younger I spent summers on my great-uncles dairy farm. Helped out with the livestock and in the garden. I’m an extremely quick learner, will get right in there with the men and run machines, build, farm. I drove machines in a warehouse for 4 years.

    I am wanting to go off grid. I think we as a society have gotten away from basics. Technology is great but you still need some where to start.. I am a retired truck driver, I have experience in building, plumbing,roofing ,gardening, canning and food preservation,and a few other things. My father taught me alot growing up. I am looking for land, like minded individuals or a community. Contact me please. I feel this needs to be done to continue my life any further.

    Hello, I am very interested and serious in joining a community like this. I’m a single, 25 year old man. I don’t have any thing keeping from heading out and getting there. I’ve done some work with power tools although I could use more training. The only thing I can really say I offer is my determination and ability to work hard. I’ve done a lot of different jobs but haven’t been satisfied with one yet. I’m honest and responsible, no criminal record and haven’t been fired from a job. So really the only thing that might keeping me from joining is my lack of training. So if you have suggestions as to what I should learn before I get there or if someone there could teach me, let me know.

    I am very interested! I would be accompanied by my wife and 4 children, 3 girls, and one boy; oldest kids are my twins Joseph and Vonda who are 5, followed by Crystal, 2, and last but definitely not least is my youngest Abigail. All of these would add an immeasurable amount of laughter and happiness to any around them.
    My wife is a great cook, to say the least, and myself am an electrician and all-around handyman. Both of us love to build stuff, and I like to experiment with alternative power generation, such as hydro/wind generators.

    My email is Joelee7648@gmail.com if you would like to talk further. Thank you for your time, and may God bless you.
