Farm Wanted

Posted by Mike on December 7th, 2006

We have been renting a farm since last April. We are now looking for a farm of our own. Click here to see our flyer.

    Hi Mike,

    Those farm criteria sound like you are on the right track. Except for the part where you will need at least $5 million dollars to physically secure your daughters in such a farm during the troubled times to come, and another $2 million dollars to protect those fruit trees from the acid rains, which can only get worse, plus another $2 million dollars for cisterns, so that you can water your daughters and all those fruit trees during a 3 1/2 year drought for example (or make that $30M if you plan on watering cows in a drought). Such a drought seems more likely every day, because famines run on a cycle, as the history books seem to indicate, not to mention people have in general PREPARED for a famine, because they’re all mostly sickly, malnourished, and overweight. Then there is the matter of you not having been born German or Amish, which means you probably don’t know how to live like a SLAVE to the land from morning until night, every day, until you die, just to keep things going using the Independent Jackass method, otherwise known as the nuclear family method to living and working.

    Some answers to the challenges of our generation are in the past, but others are in the future. The traditional farmstead has no chance of durability or viability in the future, in my not-so-humble opinion. And neither does the Independent Jackass method, whereby people such as yourself and myself set out to individually solve such huge problems as how to live and work in balance with the land, while using money wisely while it still works to prepare for when it will no longer work, or the problem of preparing for a time when it is no longer economically feasible to go on replacing roofs and sidings and fences, forever, while filling the trash heaps with those planned obsolescence materials, especially all that wasted wood. You cannot afford the traditional farmstead method, which even today would guarantee to make you poor, just as mine is keeping me poor, in spite of my relative high income.

    May I suggest that you are ready to read the following:

    If you are not so easily offended, then you just might fall in love with the thought of those 4 foot thick concrete walls, which would be a wise investment in my opinion, since they could probably go on sheltering your future generations for a few hundred years, if not more, because the termites don’t like to munch on it, nor will such walls blow away like the chaff, as the psalmist wrote at the very beginning of that chapter. But most of all, you’d certainly want lots of like-minded neighbors in on your plan, instead of living on a lonely farm, without lots of hands to make light work of the big difficult jobs.

    Sincerely,
    Skipster

    Mike,

    I know this is an old posting, but I have a farm that I want to sell that meets most of your criteria. Please email me to let me know if you are still looking. If so I can give you all the details.

    Thanks,
    Katy
