we are building a community in south central KY.  we are not amish, but do live in an amish house without electricity.  we are thinking of converting the main house into a community building (keeping it electric free if possible) and build several smaller houses around the property.   we are not opposed to others having electricity in their own buildings.   there's around 25 acres with a pond, small creek, forested area, and sloping pasture.  we are loosly christian based, and open to people of various religious lifestyles.  we homeschool and try to stay away from allopathic medicine (although, there is a time and place for everything i suppose).  this year we put in a garden, and planted berry bushes and fruit trees.  i have high hopes for next year.  we have pretty much unlimited wild berry patches all over the place, and tons of wild greens.  we have 5 icelandic sheep, and getting a milk cow is becoming a priority. basically, we're looking for like-minded families, or single people to do stuff with, we're open to new ideas, and we're not opposed to moving if the right people and piece of land come together.  if you're interested, hit me up! i only get on here once a week or less, because, we live in an amish house, but i'll check back when i get back to town

Hi, my name is John. I am originally from eastern Kentucky but I was raised on a farm in central NC, close to the Virginia border. Everything that made NC my home is no longer so I have been planning on relocating, with Kentucky on my list of places to go. Like I mentioned, I grew up on a working farm. We mainly had cattle but also had horses, sheep and lots of goats, amongst other animals, so I know my way around a farm and farm equipment/tractors. I am also self-employed as a carpenter so I also have that skill set. I also know how to garden and grow edible mushrooms (not for profit, just a hobby). I have been looking for some good, decent people to fall in with and see where things go but have been too busy lately to really do any serious searching. Anyways, feel free to email me at silverlion0475@gmail.com if your interested. Thanks.

Where specifically are you located? My family is relocating to KY this winter and we are very interested in joining a community there! My husband will be working in Lexington but I homeschool our daughters (8, 5, and 7 months) and am hoping to expand the little homesteading operation I started here in Iowa (gardening, chickens, and rabbits). If the location works for commuting to Lexington and you would be interested in a family with young children, maybe we can get to know each other?
