When we moved here the idea was that we'd homestead with my in laws who lived across the street. With our land combined and sharing cost we'd have a nice set up, but they kind of bailed on the idea from the beginning. My bil is disabled, and his wife is less than enthusiastic so I guess I should of known better! I wish we could find a likeminded family to move on property with us and work the homestead together. How in the world do you find that!?

  There was an ad somewhere once of a guy trying to get people to move to his land and help get a community homestead going. I thought it was great but he didn't want kids there only adults. That's when it started to seem a little off. I don't know how things turned out i never heard anything else after that. 

I would love to have a community around here. but I would be worried about the people that would want to live there. Maybe I watch and read to many true crime stories because I would always be worried about my kids safety with people i don't know coming in and out of the community. but that would be something you would keep for it to grow.

I'd love to be able to find like minded people to get together with. It would be nice to work with someone directly and so forth. I was helping who I thought was a friend on her farm for the last year. I learned how to process chicken and so forth. So it was worth while. 


I remember your idea of a community with your inlaws. It sounded like it would have been great if you could have been able to get them involved more with it.
