    Hi. My husband and I are looking for such an opportunity. We’re finishing our AS degrees this summer then we’ll be home free. I work on an organic farm and we grow some organic vegetables right now. Have just a little orchard experience and am a very hard worker. (Have a lot left to learn too.) Know how to make all kinds of dairy products. My husband can operate a tractor with implements and has some plumbing/electrical skills. We’re building our own solar panel right now. We are not sure whether we want to homestead in a tight-knit town or join a community. We just want to be able to have a dairy cow or a few dairy goats eventually, also layer chickens and garden. We were thinking we’d go the straw-bale route for housing but are flexible on that. Husband is very interested in biomass burners and we want to do a rocket stove, also a wind turbine later. I’m a pescetarian and husband is very low volume meat consumption and no pork. We are constantly moving more toward sustainability and maintain a blog about it as well. We DO plan to have children but have none yet. Let us know if this could be a possible fit and we would like photos.
