Low Gear Farmstead
If you are interested in experiencing rural Texas as we build our permaculture based farm, this may be a good fit. We have many projects in mind, although it will be a gradual process to get to them. We are starting this farm from scratch. First on the list of projects are raising laying hens from chicks and buying dairy goats. We also hope to incorporate permaculture planting using as many native and adapted species as possible. Rain water catchment systems are something we want to develop as well.
It's just me and my fiance and our dogs. Its going to be a very small farming operation, mostly just subsistence farming. We are starting our farm with very little capital and do not expect to earn much money. We just want to live off the land to the fullest extent that we are able to. This will be a gradual process to make it to that point. Volunteers are guaranteed a tent to live in and will have access to the house for kitchen and bathroom usage. Hopefully, we'll be producing enough food to share some with volunteers, but at this point that is not a guarantee. Right now, all we can offer is fresh eggs! We hope volunteers will enjoy helping us with various projects to start our farm and will be able to enjoy the surrounding area as well.
