I purchased 30 acres south of Jonesville, VA, in 2019. It has 10 acres cleared and 20 surrounding acres of forest. This was a former horse farm and has a 30x60 barn with 7 box stalls, 1 double box, and tack room. I’m currently rehabbing the singlewide trailer that was here with septic, spring water, and electric. After I build my passive solar, underground or earth bermed house, the trailer will become the community center and temp housing for new members. So far, I have put in several raised beds planted in veggies and berries, cut one swale and started a food forest, and have built mobile shelters for chickens and pigs with movable solar electric net fencing. I have a tractor with loader, backhoe, tiller, brush hog, and box grader; a riding mower, and lots of power tools. New members are responsible for building their own housing and helping with community projects. The first family I had join me in 2020 didn’t work out and have since moved on to something less strenuous. Prefer libertarians, veterans, and/or skilled and mature members. No loafers or parasites need apply. If you sincerely want to develop a homestead or farm but don’t want to do it alone, I’d love to talk with you.
Joy and abundance,
Cory “Cimarron” Layne
