We would like to find some people with skills in baking and carpentry. A couple would be great.  we already have much in place 30 acres with 100 ft of commercial frontage. Endless Enigma farm is off the grid and on the  adjoining property we have an inspected commercial kitchen that we sell our products that we make. Our small town really need a baker. A great opportunity for someone that want to work.

My wife and I both work full time jobs and Im striving to build a BIG greenhouse to do aquaponics in and sell veggies and fish from the stand. the wife is in her late 40s and I in my late 50s. We both have a lot to teach, the wife is into wild herbs and gardening and Im into everything from brewing & blacksmithing and bushcrafting to the latest, winter camping. Currently building a bandsaw mill to saw lumber for the greenhouse and plan to start in spring 2017.

Please reply to post. Thanks

    My name is Marjie and I am a single 51yr old female that seriously wants to go off grid. I was raised in a survivalist lifestyle home so I am very self reliant and have years of life skills. My son is 20 and lives with me. He teaches martial arts, weapons training and bushcrafting. Both of us have skills that lean more towards surviving off the the land and in emergency situations. I am not a carpenter, but I can and have built a home. I can bake and can goods but I wouldn’t say I have mad skills at it, but I do sew and garden. Living in a community of like minded people would be an ideal situation for myself. At my age(my son will go his own way soon)alone is not always the best way to go off grid. Like the previous post said, just communicating with others that are seeking the same lifestyle would be nice. Exchanges of ideas is always welcome.

    My name is Lee. I am the husband of a beautiful wife and father to 3 year old and 10 month old. I am a home remodeler and good with my hands. In have some mechanic skills as well. My wife is a cook and animal lover. She can bake anything! It’s so funny to us the first thing you mentioned was needing a carpenter and baker:) I am 30 yeArs old and the wife is 23. We are anxious to learn off the grid living. We hope to own our own land one day where we can grow our own food and hunt our own meat. I’m so anxious just to talk with you more if for nothing more than to pick your brain a bit. Who knows maybe we can end up working together. Americanpaint000@gmail.com looking forward to hearing from you.
