We value good communication, the consensus process, creativity, organic land management, renewable energy, and fun.
We are a land cooperative of around 21 adults and 1 pre-teen living on 358 acres in southeast Minnesota. We share the land in common, but housing, incomes, diet, schooling, etc., are each individual’s choice. 85 ac of land is planted to native prairie, 5 ac in perennial fruits, with the remainder in woodland and wild areas. Land is managed organically. Homes use grid and solar energy. We have very little turnover at our land co-op and find replacements by word of mouth.
