As of right now it’s a blank slate.
144acres. 1.5 miles along lost creek.
Ponds, bluffs, a river, and numerous streams.

Grafted a few dozen pear scions on wild pears earlier this last month when I finally closed on this place.
Tons of trees in pots that I’ve grown out and/or grafted.  Planting soon.

Hardwoods, pastures, and planted pines.

Fencing pasture land for grass fed cattle this summer.


I’m open to hear any/all arrangements.

The only terms that are concrete are that the land is not for sale and no illegal drugs.
I’d prefer if you’ve had a semi active account on permies for 6+ months.

You tell me. What you want.

Examples.  Work trade? Business partners?
Just a place to chill for a summer/ winter?

Want to start a regen/ permaculture based business?

Plant nursery, grass fed/ forest fed livestock, Airbnb rentals, and Agro tourism.

These are some of the things I’m up for.

Throw offers this way.

Lack of access to land to farm/ homestead/do permaculture is a myth.
Lack of access to land in some cool trendy city so you can hang out isn’t my problem.

Part of my growing cattle herd are 100% wagyu.

The rest are a mish mash of black angus, charolais, and simmental.

Slowly and steadily thinning the under growth of the new 5-8 acre paddocks and limbing trees up as high has the tractor will reach.

Hey Jay. I’m located only 1.5 hours away from you with a 100 acre homestead in MS. I’m seeking similar things as you as we slowly develop this raw land. My lady’s parents live just across the Bankhead forest from carbon hill. We’ll be visiting them for christmas. Maybe we could get together and talk sometime. Feel free to direct message me on here. There seems to be precious few like minded folks in this area. I look forward to hearing from you.

I'm located in South Florida but am free to stay somewhere else until the summer.  I've been considering finding a place to exchange labor for experience.  I'm interested in learning more about gardening and also learning to work with cattle.  I've been around cows before for a short time but my experience got cut short unfortunately.  Pretty sane, drug free 25yo college student taking a semester break here.

Hi Cody. Thanks for reaching out.
I’m pretty booked up at the moment. Maybe later on into the summer I’ll have a spot available.
 
I found some pretty shells, some sea glass and this lovely tiny ad:
