Land Seeker Description

I am nearing retirement age and want to get out of the OTR trucking back to a simpler and more rewarding lifestyle.  Came from Farm back ground and want to return.  High cost of farm land is however very discouraging.  I am working toward running a small to medium operation using aquaponics and green house farms to produce most income.  25 acres at the least 300 or so would be Ideal.

Have intentions of using Salatin farming techniques for poultry, rabbits, pork and beef, I am quite frankly very excited to build this into a working lifestyle to supplement retirement by SS age in 3 years.  Wife and I are both getting bored with being on the road all the time


What features of the property are essential?

Water is good.. Plan to develop water catchment systems and hopefully find property with water on it (plan to raise fish 😉 Soil is less criticle as I will be moving pastured poultry, mobile egg mobiles and live stock to rejuvenate any soil issues creating the best growing beds for what ever may need to be grown. Most of garden production will be a result of Geothermal green houses and aquaponic gardens as well as utilizing composting methods to fertilize (strictly an organic operation) no GMO's chemicals or hormone fed animals.


Describe your farming experience

I spent my younger years working on various farms. Resident farm hand doing wheat and corn work. After that working with cattle and managing a 500 sow hog farm.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

I would like to be operating fully by SS age and working full time on my chosen methods and operation.


What are your long term goals

Simple: Live out what ever life I have left getting back to nature and studying land and teaching others better ways to live and feed themselves.


Describe your housing needs

At present it is just my wife and I but she is after all a girl 🙂 Nothing too big but clean and comfortable for her sake... me just put me in the barn or garage
