Read below what real homesteaders in this state think the pros and cons for living and homesteading here. Add your own in the comments!
Pros: Weather is great for what we like to do. Largely rural areas, with nearby cities, make access to needed items ideal. Lots of like-minded people.
Cons: Property and income taxes seem high, but I’m not sure how they compare to other areas. We live in an area where larger pieces of agricultural land are increasingly scarce. Local laws are becoming less friendly toward small farms/homesteads.
