    I live in Robertsdale, Alabama Up near the interstate! We do get alot of heavy rain severe thunderstorms and of coarse the occasional hurricane! But the growing season is 9 months out of the year outdoors and all year in a green house! Hot and humid! Must have a concrete foundation and state approved septic tank!But pretty much after that you are good to go! I am new to this just got my property in october of 2015 a lot of clean up being done! Hope to start producing own food in mass amounts next year!

      (334)479-8583. I have 2 girls and a wife to think of first, but, all 3 are needing to do more, as am I. Wife needs books to read, girls need friends as they are outgoing. Faith in God is around but not prevalent. The woods are always in my life and my wife knows it. Im ready to leave life as we know it. Unsure about entire family. We are dedicated to each other and girls. Looking for help.

        Howdy. Alabama still has some woods. I just bought an acre of thickly wooded land. With the past 3 year drought. Some of the trees are dead, just waiting to be pushed over. Look around. Study what you need and why. Go looking. It’s out there.

    That sounds great! My wife and I live in Indiana and are wanting to move down to Alabama within the next two years. We are looking to find (even a fixer-upper) a house on some acreage to start our own self-sufficient homestead.

    what kind of “Homesteading ” are you talking about? the homesteading i know about is in the past ,where people go find a piece of land and set up a home and make it quit self suffecient and it becomes theirs for no money,,they had that before there were cars,,, so the word “Homesteading ” needs to be clairefid in defination,,,now these days people “Buy” land with money then develop it into the modern days name called”Homesteading” and it is a very large investment like buying any place these days ,,, But those are 2 very differant versons of Homesteading,,,,,
