One day you realize, city life has become such a rat race. And all you can think about – dream about! – is moving to a quiet, peaceful place in the country. You can do it!

Take a look at the 2014 GRIT's Guide to Modern Homesteading the Old-Fashioned Way  for information on looking for property, buying your dream homestead, options for building on your own land, finding water, building a septic system and outbuildings, adding livestock to the homeplace, and finding a niche market so you can keep that place out where the pavement ends.

If you're still dreaming of that country locale, read through each of these in-depth articles to get a realistic sense of what you need and what you want. If you're in the process of making that big move, pick and choose the articles that best fit your current needs.
