This is interesting. You need to do a lot of planning - I've been planning for something like this for 3-4 years now, the more you look into it the more you realize you don't know.

Knowing how to Save seeds, animal husbandry, using hand tools, natural food preservation methods, understanding permaculture, and learning how to make most things from scratch are just the tip of the iceberg. "The Encyclopedia of Country Living" is a great book that will get anyone started down the path.

I have the opposite problem as you: I have lots of skills and knowledge but little money for land and livestock. I've just spent the majority of my money on seeds and tools in preparation for going off grid.

Water is a huge concern, need lots of it. Wood for fire, and of course space if you want any livestock or a meaningful harvest of grains.

Bees are a great thing to keep around, honey can be sold. Many veggies can be sold at Farmers Market, etc, and seeds can be sold online for income.

Ive been reading a lot of opinions on the topic and it seems the consensus is that the longer you sit around thinking about doing something like this, you will never do it. People just need to dive in head first and never look back - yes it will be hard at first but you life will be SO MUCH MORE REWARDING.

This is what I want, I envy you and wish you the best of luck in your project sir,
