We have 27 acres of rolling land near the Menominee River that we are currently developing into a small homestead. There is a fair amount of affordable land for sale in the area for anyone interested in forming a community with us but not in the sharing of property. As a matter of fact, there are 80 acres to the direct south of our land for sale – already developed a bit.
We believe in the importance of community and families. We would love to have other people to share this journey with. Not only would we enrich each other’s lives, but as the old saying goes: two hands are better than one. We are helpful to a fault and willing to learn just about anything we have to. If you are interested in joining us on this venture, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are going in this direction whether or not we can put together a group… we just think it would be a lot more fun and interesting to make this happen with other people.
Our goals with our land do not currently include selling off small parcels or incorporating. We have plans to build guest housing or small rentals on our land for those who are interested in the lifestyle and for one reason or another can’t afford to buy in the area. These will not be finished for a few years, however.
Please remember that this lifestyle is not something you can simply jump into on a whim. It’s a lot of hard work and the initial start up cost for land, housing, and equipment is fairly steep. I don’t mean to scare anyone away from this, because in my opinion it’s totally worth every penny and every drop of sweat. I’m merely implying that we are looking for serious, dedicated people who have thoroughly thought this lifestyle through. Is that you? Are you done dreaming and ready to get your hands dirty? If so, please contact us!
**House construction has resumed with a hopeful move-in date somewhere in the fall of 2013. Look for exciting updates on my atheisthomesteader blog!**
