Greetings from N. GA. Richard here, interested in learning what I need to learn concerning homesteading in North GA, Cherokee County area. If there is anyone around N. GA that is homesteading or can advise me of the ins and outs, that would be great. At the moment, looking at terrain and feasiblitiy. Would like to have crops for self and some sales. Goats for milk and meat, chickens for eggs and meat, rabbits for meat and to supply good manure for garden/ worms. Maybe a fish pond or even a natural pool to swim in. Blue berries, black berries, apples, peaches, veggies all are part of the plan. Love this site.

Hi Steve! Wondering if you have an update. Did you ever find some land in North GA? We are currently looking to make the move from Atlanta and mostly looking around Pickens County, but open to most of N. Georgia. Sounds like we have a lot of similar goals and I'm wondering where you are in your journey?

We are currently looking for land in this area of Georgia.  Hoping to be prepared should the need arise for self sufficency.  Would consider joining forces with like minded people.

Richard, I just bought a 5 acre homestead in Pickens county GA. I am looking for like minded folks to share experiences with and learn from.
I am in the planning stages, very early stages. My goal is to garden and raise some chickens. Eventually, I would like to add some pigs, goats, and maybe even a cow.
I feel that homesteaders are stronger and more successful together. Maybe we can get together and exchange ideas?
