About a year and a half ago my family bought and moved to a secluded piece of land in NH. There was no electric even close to the homestead community and no water except from a pond. We brought our rv to live in as we build and we put in a well. We started with generator power and added solar. Soon we will be putting up a wind turbine. We added chickens, ducks and goats. We started a 1/4 acre garden and we will soon expand it. We hope to be at least 80% self sufficient in the next year. The best part is it wasn’t nearly as difficult of a transition as I thought it would be but it has been incredibly rewarding.
Are you living the off grid sustainable homesteading life you dream about? If not do you want to start now?
I am looking for individuals and families to share my family’s 50 acre homestead with as it grows. Is anyone interested in joining an off grid homesteading community in New Hampshire? Bring your tiny house, RV or come build your own cabin.
We are looking for people with all levels of homesteading skills. A lot of what we hope to do is help people to make the transition to off grid homesteading. There is quite a learning curve and many new homesteaders struggle and sometimes quit. If people come and submerse themselves into a working homestead they can learn quicker and avoid many of the difficulties they would face on their own.
send me a message if you interested.
