How to Find a Farm on the Internet

How to Find a Farm on the Internet

Let me explain how to find a farm on the Internet. We found our farm and homestead by searching the internet back in 2016. Let me explain what we looked for when we were buying land and the things you should consider if you want to find a farm on the Internet.

About Gold Shaw Farm: Gold Shaw Farm is more of a farm-in-progress than an honest-to-goodness farm. Our dream is that someday we are able to transform our 150+ acre parcel of land into a regenerative and productive homestead and farm.

  1. Also, if you are considering a small farm, many towns place a lot of restrictions on what you can do on your land. They might not let you raise any animals. They might restrict how many outbuildings you can have. Some states and some towns, are generally more friendly towards agriculture. There tends to be less restrictions when you have a lot of land. Itโ€™s exhausting, but read the zoning laws for the town you are considering. States also handle things very differently. If you make over 15K a year in gross sales on your farm in CT, you might qualify for a property tax discount, on the other hand, agricultural land in NH is taxed at a higher rate. Itโ€™s really amazing when you stop to consider everything, how much each state is like a different country!

  2. In our area you HAVE TO view any property you buy in the spring at peak runoff. There is a gigantic aquafer under this whole area, so unless you plan to build on top of a mountain (and even if you do plan to do that), you never know what will turn into a lake in the spring until you see it.

  3. Hardest part about buying land. Finding land that include water and mineral rights! I (19 male) live with my mother and sister on our family's 80 acre ranch, we are lucky as we have a creek that passes through the land, we have half pasture half woods, and we have water/mineral rights. I would like to buy my own land some day, of at least 100 acres (ideally much more as long as I can come up with the money to support it). But when I buy my own land I want to have equal quality/value as my current home or better, but I guess the future will tell.

  8. This guy, who wants to raise geese and ducks, bought a โ€œfarmโ€ with a giant barn that is useless and he cannot even afford to have torn down….or just refuses to pay the price. He bought a โ€œfarmโ€ for his geese and ducks that does not even have a pond or even a spring that could possibly be the start of a pond. His aquatic birds swim around in their own filth in the mud hole that he created for them that dries out OR the plastic pools that fill up with filth in minutes. I would hesitate to take any buying advice from this guy. He is totally unprepared to accomplish his goal except for owning some land that is not suitable for his plan. The dog is adorable although badly treated and the birds are cute enough but he has no idea what he is doing and apparently does not take advice well.

  9. This was incredibly helpful, thank you so much for sharing! My partner and I are dead set on moving to Vermont and planning to rent for a year so we can take our time exploring the different areas and communities. We both have full time remote jobs but big ambitions as well to be as self sustaining as possible and leave something solid for our children to thrive on when we're gone. You've given us quite a few resources to look into. Thank you!!

  10. I didn't buy a farm, but I did buy a vintage airstream trailer. I went through the same process of distilling my goals, needs and wants; figuring out the market I was searching in; etc. It took me two years of searching and saving and near misses before the right purchase came up, and by that time I had almost given up. But I didn't know when I'd ever get the opportunity again, so I jumped on it. I'm still working on renovating that trailer four years later, mostly because the more I learn about the trailer and myself, the more I'm willing to take things apart in order to truly make things better, or do a more complete job that will last longer. But it's worth it, because I know my trailer retains a lot of value in the market and it's the perfect size for me.

  11. From what I understand Duck eggs are recommended for Cancer patients because the eggs are Alkaline, and Cancer cells cannot survive in an Alkaline environment.

  12. If you want to be a farmer, be like NASA and follow the water. Get to know the area in all seasons. Learn about the geology and climate of the area. Vermont is quite wet and much of the soil is shallow because of the last glaciation. Make certain you know where the water on your land comes from, how it moves across your land, and where it goes when it leaves.

  13. Hey, have you considered โ€œduckweedโ€ for your pond? The ducks would enjoy it, itโ€™s profoundly easy to grow, and it helps purify the water.

  14. It was easy to find our farm. It has been passed down in my husband's family sine 1681, it was our turn in 2018 to take over, so we left the big city. My hubby is the 13th generation here. ๐Ÿ˜Š
    The farm still goes under it's original name.

  15. You guys are lucky to have such spaces. We lost all our farms when the government passed land ceiling act. An individual cannot own more than 25 acres. Anything more gets expropriated (without compensation) by the government. My forefathers challenged these laws in court..lost all the cases and the farm.

  16. I keeping getting vegan ads saying itโ€™s wrong to kill pigs and cows , like wtf I donโ€™t care I want to be a farmer these ads suck and now Iโ€™m getting a condom ad rlly wtf YouTube

    Edit: I was writing this while the ads where rolling

  17. I noticed in every video you have at least a little bit of drone footage. This video had a lot. You should do a video on that. Like… a drone tour of the farm, maybe some of the surrounding area. It is so beautiful there, it's like everything is so perfect.

    How much if the trees, the forest, is your property? I look out over your shoulder sometimes and see that wonderful mix of trees.

  18. More like how much can you spend, given the current economy. And for those of us with disabilities/chronic health problems, the question of exactly what we're able to do, plus how close we would be to our doctors and the nearest hospital. Rural hospitals in the US have been going under for decades and considering insurance companies are doing everything they can not to pay for C19 treatment/care… It's only gonna accelerate in the next couple years (cuz it's extremely unlikely this pandemic will be fully gone for at least 3 years – maybe longer considering how much fearmongering and conspiracy theories are being made about the virus and any potential vaccine).

    I wish I got along better with my family. But there's some pretty good reasons why I don't. Although I do find it pretty ironic that we agree on specific topics – just not enough to live in close proximity to each other. I got kicked out for being an atheist about 7 years ago. We've kinda made up, but there's definitely topics we can't talk about and Mom regularly gives me the silent treatment/bans the rest of the family from interacting with me. Well, she tries to anyway. Mostly Dad and my brother just roll their eyes and ignore her. Not that I get along with my brother all that well – we've been like oil and water for as long as I can remember.
