One thought on “Homesteading in New Jersey

    New Jersey is EXTREMELY expensive! From taxes to insurances, it’s ridiculous. State motto, “The Garden State” may have been true when it was first established, but now is really hard to imagine. There are more housing developments consuming former farm land. The state is heavily regulated and just about everything healthy is illegal. I would NOT recommend this state to anyone who wants the freedom to do what they want with their property. Don’t walk away from NJ, RUN!
