I've posted a few and read more posts all over these forums. This community has been a wealth of information, so thank you! My wife and I have started making our first official steps toward making our dream a reality. We've decided on the foothills/ edge of the mountains of NC between Asheville and Spartanburg. We found 20 acres at a steal price, it had already been roughly cleared and had a driveway roughed in. The only thing we have to do is build and connect the house up, then, of course, build up pastures, vegetable, and grain plots, then orchards etc... The property is definitely not homestead turn-key, but we are up to the challenge and looking forward to the journey the whole way! The eventual goal is to produce a fully functional homestead with sustainable practices, with a big focus on community outreach and an educational center. Pictures will be up shortly as we haven't had time to break away from our day jobs to get out to the property in a while. I'll keep you all posted as it progresses.
