Personals / Looking for a grass fed livestock farm who needs an intern

Looking for a grass fed livestock farm who needs an intern

I am done with living here in the city. I need move around, see the world, connect with nature, meet people with similar interests. I want to learn about living a natural lifestyle, grass fed farming, hunting, fishing, gathering wild foods, “primitive” skills, healing, etc etc. I want to get out of the capitalism, greed, competition, destruction, oppression that I see in society today. I am very young, maybe I am just naïve and passionate and impatient but I have the overwhelming need to live how we are meant to live. Not the way I am living now.

I would love to have the opportunity to work and learn on a grass fed livestock farm. I’ve grown up in a city so I’m not claiming to have any great knowledge or experience, but I think I am a quick learner. After starting to eat raw paleo, I began to develop many new interests and I’ve done a lot of reading on different aspects of farming. I am very enthusiastic and hard working so I hope you will consider having me as an intern on your farm :)

Eventually I want to travel the world. My dream is to wander around the world working on organic farms, learning to hunt and fish, picking fruit, camping under the stars, learning how people lived traditionally in different areas. A modern hunter-gatherer if you will… I can’t do this yet. I need to be older and more knowledgeable and have skills so I can get by.

I’m just a teenager. I have a ged, I’m going to community college, and I’m working to save money, but this isn’t where I want to be. I hope you won’t ignore this simply because I’m young. I have a whole life ahead of me but there’s no point in wasting it where I am now.

Sorry if this is vague, but there is so much I want to do and I don’t know where to begin, I guess I’m thinking that a good place to start would be learning and developing skills while working on a farm. So basically; I am wondering if there is anyone out here who has a farm they need help on, or even just like minded people who are on the same path and want to connect and make something happen.

Health / lump on neck/ swollen lymph nodes
« on: November 13, 2013, 11:53:21 am »
Hi, so I posted a couple weeks ago about acne which has actually been getting much better! This diet has definitely improved my health in many ways.

But about 2 weeks ago I noticed a lump on the right side of my neck and another one at the base of my skull. The one on my neck has definitely grown a little bit in the past 2 weeks. It is round, hard, painless unless I really push on it hard, and somewhere between the size of a pea and a marble.

Based on where these 2 bumps are, I think they might be lymph nodes. I was thinking this is some sort of detox but now I'm not sure since I think it's growing. Is there anything I can do to stop it? Should I go to a doctor?


Hi, I'm new here and I've been reading everything on this forum for a couple months and been eating 100% raw for about 2 months. My story is as follows. A couple years ago I had terrible acne over every inch of my face. I went on accutane and that cleared it up but when i finished the accutane it came back and i had to take accutane a 2nd time. Both times I was on accutane I had terrible bone pains, dry lips and skin, and mood problems. about halfway through my second course of accutane I found the (cooked) paleo diet and immediately stopped taking accutane and eating cooked paleo. This helped my acne a lot, but I kept having to get stricter and stricter with my diet to have relatively clear skin. I was breaking out more than usual when I found this raw paleo diet and have been eating it since then for 2 months.

Here is what I eat every day:
3-4 fertile, pastured egg yolks
about 1/4 lb wild fish or grass fed beef
mature coconut water and meat (1 coconut lasts me 3 days usually)
a lot of fruit (papaya, mango, plum, banana, pomegranate, etc)

I have 3 questions:
1. I find myself craving mostly fruit. Sometimes I crave meat and fish but only in small amounts. I always eat animal foods first. I find organ meats and bone marrow downright repulsive. How do I make myself like animal foods more?
2. I crave tomatoes and grapefruit SO much but they both give me gas and diarrhea. Especially grapefruit, one day I ate 6 before I reached a stop and I had bad gas all day and diarrhea the next morning. I don't think this is detox, but could it be? How could something taste so good if it's bad for me?
3. I am still getting acne, it is smaller and not as inflamed but still lots of little spots, mostly on my cheeks? any advice?

Thank you so much for this forum and all the knowledge that everyone here has :)
