When the covid situation eases... this opportunity is for people aspiring to go back to nature, live communally and *sustainably* in Cumberland County, NS, and learn about the alpaca fibre business. You do not need to be an experienced farmer.
So far, I have two takers but, eventually, I would love 4 more *non-smoking* individuals/couples to be part of this. I know it will take time to find people who share my goals and outlook and who have good chemistry with me personally. I’m a quiet, middle-aged guy who mostly keeps to himself, but I also love good conversation around the dinner table or the woodstove. I am open to people of any spiritual or political viewpoint but not anyone who is anti-religious or who needs to be only with people who share their worldview (e.g., people who are overly “woke”).
Rather than asking you to work 40 hours a week or for a lot of money, I just want 10 hours per week of your help and a $500 monthly contribution to the common living expenses (which covers your shelter, meals, and wifi). At the end of each calendar year, I will give you 10% of the farm profits (which currently come primarily from alpaca fibre products, airbnb, and a small biennial blueberry harvest). By pulling together on the activities listed below, we can increase the farm revenues so that your profit-share at the end of the year is a few thousand, instead of a few hundred.
I have a pair of beautiful riverfront hobby farms in Southampton, NS, each with a large 4-bedroom house. There are 3 acres of wild blueberries, 6 acres of pasture, and about 8 acres of woods that provide more than enough firewood to heat both homes without having to clear-cut any areas.
Over the last 4 years, I have been raising alpacas and developing a thriving fibre business around them. I have 4 at the moment, but I want to build the herd up to about 20 and to grow the diversity of products I derive from the fibre. A small portion of my food comes from the property, and my vision is to increase that slowly and steadily every year.
Some of the new areas of activity that I want to undertake (once the right long-term cohabitants are found) are:
The 6 roles available are:
If you have a family, the rooms won’t work for you, but I am amenable to you building a tiny home on the property and then I would forego much of the financial contribution, obviously.
