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.

    Hello, I know this is an old post, but was wondering if you are still looking for people to add to your community? I love New Hampshire and have been going there every year since, well..since I was in my mother’s belly. It has been a dream of mine to live there. I also love the lifestyle and fulfillment I believe one would get from homesteading and would love to try it. I really love hard work and becoming part of nature. Hope to hear from you. Thank you.

  8. Phil

    I’m very interested in a simple, off-grid lifestyle and I’m currently in the process of saving money and learning as much as I can about it. I need all the help and knowledge I can get so this sounds amazing!
    I’m a 28 year old, former Navy Corpsman and I currently reside in Connecticut. In addition to my medical background/skills I have experience with stagehand work and basic wood working. I’m a crafty, artistic type as well who’s handy in the kitchen and loves to make people laugh. I will continue to have income which would afford me more free time in order to pitch in. I’m happy to work on any project where I’m needed as I possess an array of basic skills and I’m a quick learner; I’d just be happy to be busy working on something we could call our own! I would love to be in a small, tight-knit community where we could all pitch in to create a life that’s fulfilling and a lifestyle that’s sustainable.
    I hope we can talk soon!

    I see you have quite a bit of interest in your offer to join your homestead! That’s exciting to see because I have been debating the idea of either going nomadic in an RV or homesteading for about 6 months now. I’m in the financial planning stages, and slowly decluttering my life. I’ve spent the last few years working toward being more frugal in resource use, but I live in city apartments and have had little success with growing food in container gardens. I am single and in my middle years, and while I have always been independent and self-sufficient, a part of me thinks that having a small community of like-minded folks with whom to share resources and enjoy community would be enjoyable. I would come with a senior rescue cat named Banshee, but he can both earn his keep as a mouser, and sing for his supper– quite literally!

    I have gardening and animal husbandry skills, and am a musican, entertainer, and social worker by profession. I’m great with kids and am the “aunt” kind of personality. I’m good working with elementary through young adult aged youth and have taught music, drama, gardening, and other skills as a governess, along with some training in juvenile counseling. As I have never been a ‘baby’ person, I didn’t have kids of my own and being an unexpected, only-child, obviously didn’t get to be an aunt by blood. However, if others join your community with families, I can provide a couple hours a day of quality, fun, interactive time for the kids, so parents can get a spot of relief and time to be with other adults.

    My grandparents were first-generation immigrants who built their own home and lived on about 50 acres, with a full orchard, berry gardens, honey bees, hay and vegetable gardens, and various farm animals. They also ran a scrap business, cleaning out estates and recycling and reusing items from the “junk.” They had a well, a hand-dug cold cellar, and a canning room for storing in the basement, and even made their pasta from scratch. I spent summers there growing up and have some experience working alongside them in the farming.

    Please contact me if you’d like to get to know me a bit more, and we can see if we feel we could be a good fit. Thanks for posting!

  21. Eric Daniels

    I’m 47 and my girlfriend is 50 and we have been spending most of our free time on reading about going off grid, looking at land etc… We have been ready to take the plunge for a long time but we are both scared of relocating to a new place where we literally have nothing like a home, water, electric and food sources. We are not big fans of the cold and NH gets pretty cold but we also are not big fans of the HEAT and Humidity like here in Maryland. I would love to start exploring some options and your homestead sounds interesting would love to hear more about what your offering.

  24. melanie_ann

    My husband and I have been making plans the last few months to move off grid. Our plan consists of buying a few containers to turn into a home. I’ve been looking for affordable land to buy straight out w/ my retirement savings. I work for the state of North Carolina and I just don’t want to do this for another 14 years. We have no experience but many ideas. We are very excited!

  25. TinaB-H

    Totally interested

  26. Catherineflo

    I just joined this website. We have just started looking for property to buy to go self sustainable/ off grid and are still considering whether to sell or rent our current house. While doing the research I found this site. I actually think joining an already existing off grid community makes a lot more sense than doing it alone. We have been wanting to relocate to New Hampshire for a few years. My husband is a teacher. Are there schools in your area? I am a stay at home mom and would like to learn how to become self sustainable. We have a lot to learn but are intelligent, and hard working. We have a 6 year old son. We are currently in Maryland. I just joined and don’t know how to message you back. Please let me know if you are interested in talking further. 71division@gmail.com.

  27. billjmacallister

    I’m Your guy! We’re about to purchase land in northern Maine next year. Solar, Rain Harvest, garden, farm, small home. Been researching the last 5 years about solar, plumbing, electrical, brewing, farming, living as a minimalist, organic, composting, ect ect… We were considering being isolated. But, I have to accept that a community might be a better solution. More hands on deck to get things done. I’m very outside the box. I’m very hands on. I’m a home brewer, gardener, electrical tinkerer, I understand solar, biology, good with science and woodworking. Aquaponics, animal husbandry ( still learning), ect ect. I’m free on the weekends until ( i’m off grid and free in life) <- Would like to meet up and go over the dream and future of your plans and see if we're a match. Would like to say no big rush ( but i'm dye'n to get my hands dirty!) You know… send me an email billjmacallister@gmail.com <- Current resident in Chelmsford Mass. Close by. I'm very loyal, easy to get along with. Strong work ethic, bit obsessive with getting projects done.

  28. Bill J MacAllister

I know solar, farming, building, plumbing, some electrical, I am very outside the box. We were planing on purchasing Land in maine next year. Rain harvesting, Solar, farming and build a perennial forest. We were thinking isolation for a bit but, need to consider a community type setting as well. I’m strongly interested in joining and would like to meet up and see if we mesh. I’m an accomplished fisherman, brewer, raw furniture designer, small scale solar designer do it your selfer, we also do aquaponics, garden yearly. New to farm animal husbandry but eager to learn more. We been visiting many farms in Massachusetts and take in as much info as we can. We planed on having Bee’s , ducks, chickens, and goats. I’ve built a few green houses, cold frames and had success. You get it… we are very interested in off grid. I’m extremely loyal. Easy to get along with. Very honest. Shoot me an email I’ll be up there to talk on a week end.

  29. Cynthia Messier

    Hi, I am in the process of checking out living of grid communities and I am living in Massachusetts and am looking to move to a more rural setting so New Hampshire would be a good fit. I have had a backyard farm for a number of years and look forward to something bigger and to expand to other things. It would be myself and my grown daughter. We look forward to hearing from you at the above e-mail or you may call me at 978-766-8003.
    Thank you, Blessings, Cynthia and Jennifer

    Hello, I’m interested in joining your comunnity. I am a retired veteran and have a income coming in. And I have a lot of off grid skills. I Evan like to cook. I really don’t have any family. And love the out doors. I love growing food. And enjoy people with the same interests. I do not like to drive. I have a motorhome, but prefer to sell it and use the money to build a small shelter. I am 64 years old and healthy. So if you think I would be a good candidate, let’s talk more. And I would like to see some pictures. I have all sorts of tools to bring. And things for the community.

    Hi still looking for a young family?

  36. David

    I am Very interested in your posting! I hope to speak with you and learn more.
    I have been thinking about a life change and one possibility is to convert a van and city dwell while keeping my job. This way I could save money for land then slowly build and off-grid home while still living in the van.
    …..Your post is very exciting :)

    • Christopher

      God bless I have been looking for a community whom lives off the land and the homesteading life is definitely for me. I am 33 and have many diverse skills. Roofing ,carpentry, I have a green thumb, hunting if necessary. And forging or blacksmithing as well. I’m not sure what your looking for as far as rent or a payment of some sort but I would like to build my cabin by hand if the community wouldn’t mind. Gosh this has been a message I’ve been trying to write for so long and I’m finally getting to write it. Even if I don’t hear from you guys it still made me feel almost free just the thought of this idea or even possibility/opportunity. But my email is cware2007@gmail.com please feel free to email me if I fit within the scope of what you guys feel you may need. Thanks again for reading this if you made it this far and sorry so long again I’m super excited about the opportunity to do live off grid as a homesteader.
