    We bought ours in rural Mississippi after five years of searching for just the right place and we love it. A 1910 farmhouse on 33 acres with a pond, pastures and lots of trees. Mississippi is perfect for homesteading. Low cost of land, low taxes and cost of living. Highly agricultural so lots of support for homesteading and every town has a farmers market. Long growing season and fertile delta soil. Friendly people who are happy to share and welcoming to strangers. We couldn’t have picked a better place. Buy an old place in need of some love and you’ll never regret it. Best of all if you are retired your pension and 401k are tax free from income tax. Amazing.
