With three alpacas we decided we needed more space. We knew that we enjoyed taking care of our alpacas. We needed to find a home with more land. That started a whole new adventure.
We searched for land that was affordable. The farther from town we drove, the better the prices. Also finding an affordable spot meant we visited a lot of "unusual" properties. We drove down a lot of long, rutted, rough, unmarked dirt roads. We were often lost. Some places were on the side of a mountain with steep rugged drives to get to them. Occasionally, the house had nothing but 4 walls.
We went out on most of our Sundays and drove looking for the new listings. As we started to find places that might actually work, we brought along our long suffering real estate agents. They were so supportive and patient! It took us 3 years, but we finally found our place. It is 10 acres, with a small wood, some flat places for pastures, and a functional house. Our next adventure was to make a ranch out of it!
We have started a sustainable homestead by the seat of our pants! We make things up as we learn day by day. We are not experts, but we have discovered a lot of ways to not do things. Read along and comment and/or ask questions. Join us on this adventure!
