Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

My shoulder has suddenly deteriorated and needs replacement. I'm 68yrs. My roommate is recovering from cancer. I would like to offer the opportunity for a young couple to live in their own tiny house in exchange for half of the veggies grown and half of the profit (after expenses) of eggs sold. The tiny house has high speed internet, a 50amp service, full size refrigerator, stove, and is 232 sq.ft.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

I would like to maintain the property as an active permaculture farm and continue to live this kind of a lifestyle in my remaining years.
