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 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 are seriously interested.

Our offer will only appeal to people that are considering it as a long term option. It is high for the 1st year but costs almost nothing after that.
We have a great deal of time money and effort in building this homestead to the point it is now. We are asking for 1000 a month for the 1st 12 months and we are giving a second year for free. After that if you decide to stay there will be a minimal cost of 100 per month which can be paid with proceeds from income produced on the homestead. When averaged out it is only 500 per month for the 1 st 24 months which is less than most campgrounds cost.
Included is the use of close to 50 acres for homesteading and miles of hiking trails. Access to the wells and ponds for water. Use of the tractor. An equal split of profit from projects you work on that bring money into the community. Fellowship and help from a community of homesteaders. Help building a cabin if you want one or you can stay in an RV or tiny house that you bring. Use of common areas like laundry building when it is completed.

I saw your post and was wondering if you've had success with this arrangement?  I'm trying to do something similar and wondering how it's working out for you.

Hey there, I see this is an older post but wanted to reach out anyways! My fiance and I have been looking to start/join a community for awhile now and have always wanted to build our own cabin! He has background in the Army and is really good with his hands. I can cook and sew and would love to feed and clothe a community. We owned a farm together so we are fairly decent at planting/harvesting.  If you'd like to reach out to us my email is jesssapphire75@gmail.com
