About.

We envision : A Food Forest of Medicinal and Native Plants. A Self Sustainable Ecosystem and Eco Art Village. A Community to Learn, Interact and Experience Nature

We have an old house by the road, with a good roof. The house needs work on the foundation, siding, interior and two chimneys.

Our soil is rocky clay, and we have rolling hills. Pasture land overgrown with cedar and hedge apple. There are six existing ponds that need redug and regeneration

There are around 25 horses, most of them good quality and healthy for working. The horses need attention and training. Description of the horses: two big mules good for heavy work like plowing, bush hogging, and logging. 2 Shetlands and 3 Shetland mules good for packing and for kids. Other horses good for riding.

Wild animals: whitetail deer, turkey, quail, coyote, fox, frogs, serpents, among others...
