Dear Friends, I know this has been an issue before with most, we have 10 acres of land in Northern Wisconsin. There are many families out there looking to homestead, but not the means to do so. We just got lucky on our land deal from a kind man with small town values. We came from a town around 6000 to a town of 180, most are Amish or Mennonite. Great town, small school, etc. We do not have the finances to build a homestead dream and that leaves acreage open. We asked the farmer across the street to use it at no cost for his benefit, I believe he planted oats or soy beans. Well, I would like to extend an invitation to a person/persons to come and live on this land with us to homestead. this would require you getting a shelter to live in...you can build or do like we did, a mobile home. We are not rich or out to take anyone for what they have. It would be nice to form a friendship with the same goals and ideas and work together to get them. While they occupy this land, they can have their animals, garden, etc. Yes, I know there are many details to work out, and discussions would need to take place to work out all little details to avoid future conflict. If you are not interested, just move on to the next thread, if this is something that you think you may have interest, please feel to ask questions, i can't guarantee the exact perfect answer because I may not know it, but I will do my best. We are not looking for numerious families...not a village, just one family to work side by side with in this venture.
