... I have been lurking on the backgrownd of this forum for over a year now. I read about wonderful lessons and experiences from extraordinary people that truly live life. Thank you for your thoughts and kindness! Thank you for your decency and good ideas. I have been using your advice for over a year now without contributing to this body of knowledge of this forum. I have decided to register and post my first question; I want that little piece of heaven. I want to start a hobby farm (homesteding is not realistic for me) with vegetables, fruit trees, chickens, two little girls, a wife, and a bussy schedule as an ER nurse. I left California a mounth ago towards Pennsylvania where I'm with my in-laws. We want to get this farm in any of the eastern states but the property tax scarres us. We looked in New Hampshire, is brutal there (sea coast), here in western Pennsylvania is no fun either. Does any of you can help me with an idea? A list of property tax rates posted on the web? Where should I move? How is Eastern PA in regard to propery tax?
