Creativity & freedom isn't able to flourish well in today's suburbs
I made that switch three years ago and it's quite an adjustment. Lots to love about it though, and it's wonderful to be in nature all the time. Lots of work.
We are going on 3 years now on a 10 acre homestead. It was a wild set of circumstances that led us here. Our landlord sold our rental and gave us a very short amount of time to relocate; So we thought what the heck we've always wanted to be out in the country let's try our luck. It's been full of challenges from all the equipment we needed to own. A tractor, implements, chainsaw, mower etc. Too taking care of all our critters. I can only offer one piece of advice don't go all into everything all at once, it can be easy to burn out and walk away from the lifestyle. I see so many homesteaders think they need chickens, goats, pigs, cows etc. Besides that we love the lifestyle. The best part is the reduction in mental load. No long work commutes and no hurry! Best of luck on your new journey!
