A New Beginning

Welcome to Foreststeading.  In this space I’ll be gathering information, insights, and tips on homesteading in a mountain and forest area. Specifically, I will be focusing on the Pocono mountains and the Northeastern PA mountain growing, gathering, and raising conditions since that is where my brood and I are headed in a little less than a year.

We are currently beach dwellers in NJ. While we love the coastal life, the mountains are calling us…as are the cheaper property prices, greater access to land, and more affordable houses. My husband was raised in our current town on the coast of Southern NJ, and I was raised in Scranton, in the valley of the mountains to which we will shortly call home.

We all look forward to being closer to friends and family and to starting our little homestead in the Pocono mountains. This blog will begin as a collection of resources and research and will soon also share the experiences and stories of our homestead as it grows. I look forward to sharing what I learn here and welcome any tips, tricks, or guidance from any of my readers 🙂
