Looking For Our Piece of Non-Electric America

My husband and I just got back from a trip to Tennessee to look for some homesteading land. We are looking for acreage. Enough to keep one or two beef cattle, a milk cow, a horse or two and chickens. The need for partial electricity or no electricity at all has been the subject of many discussions between my husband and me! 

This is our third trip looking for land this year. (I apologize for not creating enough posts in advance to publish while I was gone.) And, I am somewhat disappointed in the land we visited. We were so hoping that one of these properties would be "it"! We did a lot of research on the properties before we went. Cutting out a few of them because they didn't meet our requirements. However, my experience has shown me that there is no substitute for walking the land. After visiting all of the ones we thought had potential, my husband and I agreed that we were not going to make an offer on any of them. 

It is back to the drawing board to start all over in looking for our non-electric homestead.


  1. I'm new to your blog by way of "Small Farm Girl", hope you don't mind me following along. I don't have a blog of my own, but enjoy reading others. I live in Tennessee and there's open land here on the market, maybe I could be of help in finding the "perfect" place for you.

      Thank you for your very kind offer! We will keep that in mind the next time we go to Tennessee to look for land!
