We found our little piece of paradise about three years ago. As of today, our few acres has both well, and spring water, a decent shop,a small garden,a bunch of chickens,breeding rabbits,and a pantry that will feed us for around ten+ months. We do cheat with a membership to a co-op farm for more veggies. Beats safeway, hands down. Defense is fairly covered . here puppy puppy... They make a great alarm sys.
It would be nice to meet like minded people, in the not too far away area to combine skills /resources.
Cheers! God bless!!
