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: Fairly long growing season. Fall/winter gardening is pretty good. Winter Temps daily get below 20* F so minimal shelter is needed for livestock.
Cons: Mid summer is a little harder to garden because if the heat. Land in my general area is a little pricy ($3.5K-$7K per acre). Further west in the state is the mountains which presents new challenges.
