Hello my name is Aaron, im traveling with my packram and dairy sheep looking for farms to worktrade on for food and yarding(we sleep outside), but i am also looking to supplement my diet and legal sleeping security by worktrading for regular yard owners. I have many skills to offer and even offer skillshare workshops(felting, spinning, cheesemaking, survival, bushcraft, etc) to communities in exchange for food or yarding. I most enjoy working in livestock management by shepherding, trimming hooves, shearing, holistically treating ailments, birthing assistance, milking, making cheese and cooking field to fork style for your family! I most enjoy receiving raw milk, eggs, pasture-raised meat, potatoes and any kind of whole grain(i travel with a hand-grinder and solar oven). Please let me know if you have any questions or leads, thank you and blessings to us all..
“Homefree” means getting past a problem. We can eventually get past all problems in society by practicing freeDIYm instead of unsustainable $lavery which is only causing more and more problems.
“Homefree” is the opposite of being homeless, while it’s also the opposite of being housed, it’s like the third-side of a coin. “There have always been the haves and the have nots” but Homefree is actually being a “have-not-want”.
Never before have Humans had such access to primitive self-sufficiency knowledge from so many different cultures while at the same time there has never been more access to free industrially over-produced materials and self-servicable tools, many of which have superior characteristics for sustained use than technology as well as the primitive materials once used. Autonomous use of only upcycled materials and self-servicable tools that are equally accessible to everybody is the basis for equality and will solve most of the problems in the World. Government-controlled techno-socialism will never solve the World’s problems because it is inherantly unequal by it’s hierachal structure and continued use of specialty items that not everyone has equal access to aquiring and maintaining.
Nobody can be fully Homefree until everybody is relatively Homefree because ultimately we’re all affected by eachothers’ state of existence. 123Homefree will help ease society’s transition upwards to the new permaculture-living possibilities that are outside the current primitive/futurist sides of the lifestyle-coin that the establishment keeps telling us are the only options. Being completely “Homefree” means all communities self-sufficiently producing all their own food, clothing and shelter with only the use of upcycled materials and self-servicable tools that everybody has equal access to aquiring and maintaining.
My name is Aaron and I travel around Oregon and Washington with my pet dairy sheeps sharing my free and bartered knowledge as well as full-on workshops in exchange for food and/or getting to sleep on your land for the night.
Permaculture Design Consultations
I can help you cut through much of the permaculture-profiteer-propaganda because i don’t want your money and so i won’t try to sell you on additional services or land-excavating equipment rentals. Just invite me and my sheep to your land and I will describe the simple ways I see that your land can be managed more naturally, sustainably and efficiently in the long run.
Livestock Management farmhanding
I can shepherd, hand-shear, trim hooves, diagnose/treat illness and infection, milk your dairy animals, butcher, skin and tan your hides into leather.
Making your farm cheese
I can manage the processing of all your farm’s milk into different kinds of cheeses for your family and even help start your farmer’s market booth.

I offer to meet on your land or at your local park to help you learn to identify and use the plethora of naturally occurring edible and medicinal plants all around you!
Cafe De Nature
My sheep and I offer the very finest in culinary education in the peacefullness of nature on your land or in a nearby park.

Wool Felting Workshops
I offer my primitive wool felting workshops to people who organize other participants and can gather the wool.

A solvable problem http://www.mailtribune.com/article/20110218/NEWS/102180327https://
How this all started..
My name is Aaron and I’ve been a voluntarily “homeless” activist to better focus my mind on World solutions since 2006 and homeless while living with miniature goats and dairy sheep since 2014 i was part of a small group that met to help rewrite Ashland, Oregon’s “Urban Livestocking Laws” which allowed citizens with regular-sized backyards to have 2 miniature dairy goats among many other animals. Once miniature dairy goats were made legal i began promoting it to everybody to get some food sustainability in-town. After 6 months of promotion nobody had talked about making any moves to get themselves some goats so i printed flyers for an “Ashland Goat Share”..
..and handed them out until i got a couple of yards interested in trying it out for a one month trial. Then put together the money i had been saving from telling “jokes and inspirational quotes for a quarter” on the street and used it to buy my first 2 little dairy goats off Craigslist for $150 each. Well long story short almost all the yards backed out before their one month commitment so that i was walking my goats around more and more in a 24-7 homeless fashion and eventually had to quit hopes of the share and set up camp with my animals. Then i was invited to worktrade on a sheep farm and started becoming more interested in dairy sheep than dairy goats because;
-dairy sheep grow faster than meat goats do!
-their milk is almost twice as nutritious with 4x the B12
-their milk is almost twice as sweet as goat!
-their lanolin is converted by UV light into vitamin D3 and added to store milk!
-their lanolin is a natural moisturizing, antimicrobial oil!
-they are much easier keepers on fencing than goats!
-they are quieter!
-they mow the lawn better than goats.
-they have another byproduct called wool.
So I held this “homelessstead” camp outside Ashland for a couple of months, then went to work on the sheep farm for a couple of months when all of a sudden a friend informed me that the Ashland City Councelors had just passed a new law targeting us making it illegal to “walk livestock through town”!?
So since the Ashland city councel kicked my 2 little sheep-with-poopcups out of town now my dairy sheep and i just travel around by foot to new small farms work-trading to sleep on their land. I promote pet dairy sheep as the most efficient and sustainable way to supply people with their own food, clothing and cosmetic needs(lanolin). Sheep milk/cheese is so nutritionally complete that an adult human being can actually live off of a half gallon of sheep milk with a couple handfuls of wild edible plants, a piece of fruit and a handful of nuts a day!
“You can toil soil and wait longer to reap, or you can turn what’s already there into milk with a sheep!”
“You can buy a dog and a mower and have to feed them both their fuel, or you can just get a goat that mows and it’s milk will feed you!” -me
Get a couple dairy sheep or goats to help you andyour community’slocal food security! If you don’t have space to keep your own, you can still get a couple to put in a friend or neighbor’s yard and then you both can share the wool, meat, milk, butter, cheese and milking shifts. You could even make money off loaning sheep/goats out to your neighbors as lawn mowers! Craigslist is the best place to find yourselves some little producer pet goats around you. Here’s a link to a dairy sheep farm database for you to find a dairy sheep breeder near you because they dont usually advertise on CL.
