Farming couple looking for land

Started by Chelsea on 08.20.18

Posted in: Farming

We are a couple in our 30s looking to rent farmland. We have a bus that we are converting to a tiny house and we're building it to be off-grid so housing and hookups are not necessary. We're interested in growing perennial foods and medicinal herbs, and potentially would like to keep livestock if it's an option.

Ideally, we are hoping for a work-trade situation (working the land, handyman/mechanical help) to reduce the cost of rent, but are willing to pay rent for the right set-up.

Hi, Chelsea.
Are you still looking for a farm/place?

It is 35 feet; it's one of the full-length 11 window buses.

How big is your bus? There are no neighborhood covenants but I would need to do some research to see if there would be any issues with it from the county.

Hi Margo,

Thank you so much for reaching out with your offer to us! I just want to clarify that one of our priorities is to find is a spot to park our school bus tiny house. We are seeking a place to live as well as to farm. Would that be a possibility on your property? I know a lot of urban and suburban neighborhoods frown upon having unusual or commercial vehicles.

How much land are you looking for and where? I have a half acre yard, some of which is already growing some perennial foods and medicinal herbs which I would love to see expanded. I live in Ellicott City and am interested in a a work trade situation. Let me know if you would like to discuss.
