This place here in Floyd is still in the early development stage but might be of interest to some:

"Any farm communes for retirees?"

From what I see, just about any "farm community" is full of retirees.

I live in Western NC, the Blue Ridge Mnts near Asheville, and there are an ABUNDANCE of successful community farms and eco villages here. Too many to link to, but if you google eco villages in western NC you will find some of them. Here's one,
Earthaven Ecovillage - Building Sustainable Community
not sure how hippyish it is, but there are lots of others. Everyone supports small farms here, so along with good soil, cheap land, and abundant water plus mild climate, WNC is a great organic farming area. Also, there are lots of farm support groups, so they help each other plus there is gov. sustainable farm money. Aslo, we don't have much meth or crime problems here. The town of Asheville does, but not in the rural areas.
Good luck

Default Farm communes for retirees

I love the idea! Subdivide a large parcel of rich land, share the work and the benefits. Work in a team fashion and enjoy working with the land. We're in SW Washington on a hobby farm but would like to join others who share the love of farming. Let's get something going
