I have approximately 10 acres of mixed land (forest and pasture) completely off the grid in Savannah, TN.  The land used to be agricultural (it was part of a very large farm).  I reside on the land in a travel trailer parked inside an 60 x 40 barn.

I am looking for like-minded individuals who share an interest in living off grid.  There is a year round creek that runs through the property, plenty of trees growing up the side of the hill in the back, and lots of acreage that used to be both pasture and farmland.

There is room on the property for a few like-minded individuals who are interested in off grid living.  The land (a portion) is for rent, however, I am open to other trades/offers/partial rent/ etc.  Rent is $200 a month and you may live off the grid without any interaction with me (in other words, you can “do your own thing” in regards to sustainable living or we can work with each other for alternative arrangements and perhaps cooperative “farming” or other skills.

The year round creek splits this property approximately 1/4 to 1/3 of the way back and has year round flow, so you can pull clean, fresh water for all your needs.  Winters here are generally mild (but we did have a few weeks of really cold weather this past winter).

I am open to campers/tenters/RVers/portable buildings/or DIY small houses on the property, if you are handy.  There is also a local flea market about 15 minutes away that encourages local produce.  What I am NOT interested in are people who drink, do drugs or party.  I’m not a teetotaler, just not interested in having neighbors who get their highs from overdoing it on alternative substances.

While the property is “remote”, it is only 15 minutes outside of the town of Savannah.  Savannah is home to Walmart, Lowe’s, farmer co-ops and Tractor Supply.  We have several vets, a library, elementary and high school, and there is a vocational school in the next town.  Despite all these amenities, Savannah is a small town with excellent southern hospitality and a welcoming community.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions!  I also have more pictures.
