    Hello everyone. I am currently in the Army and when I get out my wife and I would like to settle down in Maine. We are just getting serious about homesteading, and we look forward to gathering as much useful information as we can to be successful and happy off the grid.

    Good luck. Stay as far south as you can afford.

    Welcome :)

    Maine has many great homesteading opportunities.

    I know a lot homesteaders here in Maine who migrated here from other states.

    Nationwide the number of farms is in decline, here in Maine farming is growing. We have more farms each year. :)

    We are off-grid [on solar-power] and active members of MOFGA.

    Wishing you luck. We moved to Central Maine from Southern NH in 2014, last year was great and this year is shaping up to be even greater. I could never leave.
