Hello all. Not sure where to begin. All I can say is I am fed up, I'm worried about the world and countries events. Life, people and more. I wish to go off somewhere semi wilderness and homestead. and depend on as little outside things as possible. But near enough to get to medical and an occational town social. Being a single female I'm a bit scared but I know I can do it. But where? What is it like in the northern most part of states that boarder Canada? I know I love 4 seasons. Sunshine in the summer to grow crops. And a healthy snowy winter. I love snow. I prefer cooler temps to hot. Just not sure where. Would sure appreciate some ideas and suggestions. Also for starting a homestead I'd like advice on what to have. I'm wanting to make a list. Buy the land then: Food to start, garden supplies, livestock, shelter, fencing, water needs, cooking needs. Types of feed containers until a barn can be built. Would be most appreciative for your help. I've only 10,000 to work with and on an owner contract can afford $500. a month to start. I'm really fed up with so much.
