Just as the title reads I'm in need of a partner or I will have to give up this homestead.  
I've been here 23 years now, and want to continue to do so, but let's face it I can't work it alone anymore.
The "partner" could be a cohort, or something more, but must be dedicated to Permaculture homesteading practices.
Gender matters little to me, it's a person's deeds/integrity that impress me.

About me:  

62 with eyes of blue, ginger hair and skin that's fair.  
I'm 5'5", average build (no handles), and dress appropriately for whatever the occasion.
I'm a spiritual being but not religious, intellectual but not a snob.
I consider myself a social philosopher, anthropologist, and historian.  
I do not like heavy metal, country, or rap music.
I'm thrifty but not cheap.
I'm multi skilled, from a needle & thread to basic power tools.
I like building things to helping a doe to kid.
I enjoy letting the livestock be as they are meant to be.  I appreciate their individual personalities.
I'm self-disciplined, and like to maintain my Zen.
I can handle chicken s**t, goat s**t, horse s**t, but will not tolerate bull s**t.
I'm a good listener, and give sound advice when asked.
I have firm convictions, practice mutual respect and expect it in return.
I firmly believe that everyone has the right to clean up their own mess.
I'm so not into Domestic Servitude.
You can find pics in the "Projects" forum, under "Kate's homestead pics".

I had a serious health issue at the beginning of this year, after my most recent test, the Dr. said that I've made an "unexpected and remarkable improvement", but I know it's the Permie Lifestyle that did most of the healing.  Throughout the illness I never stopped doing my chores, nor did I drop any the season's projects on the homestead.  "Take care of the Land, and the Land will take care of you",... That should tell you something.

What do I want in a partner?  Much of what I've expressed in the above.  To use further detail;  strong of body, mind, and spirit, yet gentle, compassionate, Honorable and just of word and in deed.  Someone who works with rather than dominate a situation.  One who can live within and part of the rhythms of the Earth.

Now, I feel I've said quite a bit, and may have missed a thing or two.  
Looking forward to hearing from  and about you here or in a PM.

Cheers!  K

hello Kate
I am John. I have a desire to live a life of seclusion and close to nature. I have been "in training" for years to live the life you describe and would be very interested in talking to you. my phone is 4178465445. I find myself at a point in life where I can make a shift to go or do anything I want. I have recently(2 years) been single and I would love to know more about you. I've spent most of my life in country living, but have been in the hvac/ maintenance field for decades. I could go on and on, but would prefer to talk if that's ok with you. I do have a unique perspective on life, scripture, and the hereafter,...
if you are inclined,... give me a call or email me at manofyah789@gmail
I do look forward to talking to you.
