The first step to getting our tiny farm started was to buy a piece of land. There are about a million and one factors that you have to think about when you are looking to buy some land, but for us it came down to price and location. We knew that we did not have much money to spend, and that we wanted to move to Colorado. So knowing those two bits of information really helped narrow down our search.
I looked around on the internet for land in Colorado for quite some time. Most of what I found was just not in our price range. We simply could not afford most of the amazing parcels of land that were up for sale. Then one day I stumbled upon a website that was financing land. They had a great property that my wife and I really liked, so we placed a bid on it. Then came the longest three days ever: waiting to see if our bid won. Well, lo and behold, it did! So, we are now making monthly payments for our own little slice of Mother Nature.
Now buying land online, sight unseen isn’t for everybody. But we understand that there is a risk for everything in life. I did my due diligence to ease my wife’s and my own minds. So we feel that it is a pretty safe bet; and I have not seen anything fishy thus far. The photo below was taken on our land.
So I must say that the views were a big selling point for us! We are really excited for our future out on our tiny farm!
That is where the idea for this site got started. We figured that other folks may like to see how we are going about building our little farm. Or, perhaps, they may just want to keep up with our progress. If any of our trials and tribulations can help others out in their life journey, then that would be fantastic.
Now building a small off-grid farm may not be for everyone. But we feel that it is the right choice for us. We want to build a better future for ourselves and our child(ren). Not to mention leaving the earth a little bit better than we found it!
