Maple Mountain Homestead
Welcome to Maple Mountain Homestead. Follow the misadventures of a New York City guy and New Jersey suburban girl trying to figure out how to homestead on their 12.5 acre property nestled in a mountainside in Vermont! This blog is mostly a journal to document our progress as well as vent my feelings.
We're a married couple in our 30's who grew tired of the rat race and New Jersey traffic and are planning our escape to the country and a sustainable lifestyle. With a foot in both worlds we're in transition from the fast paced consumeristic culture to a more simple fulfilling life. This is no small feat and will be challenging and seemingly impossible at times as we did not grow up with any basic self sufficiency skills. So join us on this journey of learning, growing and making a whole lot of mistakes!
