This is absolutely awesome, truly my definition of a fulfilling life. Great job to you both ! (and to the kid as well). I'm just a 20 years old european urbanite but this kind of life seems so perfect to me. I probably idealize but homesteading and living in the american countryside away from city troubles and being permanently /out/ is really a worthwhile life.
It's been since a few weeks that i look up on the internet land price in America and it is amazing how cheap it is compared to Europe.. totally affordable and yet it appears to me as the key to happiness
