We have been working towards a functional homestead in rural Oregon for about 4 years now on our own 12 acres
We would like to help another like minded couple or small family get a property of their own and establish it to be usable or livable... mostly because itd be great to have more friends that have similar interests as us and really build this small town community to our liking.
-small family of 3 early 30's couple with a 4 yr old
-before our child, we traveled a lot in an alternative way including freight trains, hitch hiking, a lot of camping, walking, and work trading where ever we could. we still live with this mindset
-we love music, we listen to it non stop and play in a hardcore crust punk band
-beyond punk music, we also like some bluegrass and old country
-we have a successful online business that needs employees!
-currently building our home on our property, almost finished
-we host outdoor small concert events in this area and thats always fun...
about this area-
-South eastern rural Oregon very much "in the pines" and high desert, but with lots of water, lakes and rivers surrounding our specific area... very hot but short summer season- fast growing early variety crops grow very well, cold season crops also grow very well, most herbs do well.. green houses work great out here too..., very cold and longish.. cold AF season. there is snow, some years there has been a lot, and other years have been mild, but there is always snow in the winters.
-closest major town is from 30 to 60 miles away
-we consider this place an "oasis" because its very dry but we have a beautiful river meandering through the town, always.
-Land is AFFORDABLE! for the PNW, this place is IDEAL for starting on a tight or no budget- dont let money discourage you anyway, we want to help.
-For those who are willing to, work is available in many different categories in this area.. entrepreneurs can thrive with resources
details on "helping" we can discuss based on your goals- beyond that we can certainly offer a small shelter on our property
so, what kind of questions can i answer? im sure i missed a ton of things
I'm looking to start homesteading in southern oregon. Are you in the klamath area by chance? Its so cheap over there but I heard it had a meth problem.
It would be great to connect to other young families, we're looking to move before summer.
