    Can anyone recommend good books regarding what to look for when buying land for off-grid living and homesteading?

    Zoning for appropriate uses, soil testing, etc

    Thank you

    I’ve never seen a book on that subject but there are several key elements to look for and those can change depending on your intended use of the land.

    If you can tell us more of what you plan to do we can give better answers. IE: if you want to grow crops then you need good southern exposure in our northern hemisphere. Water is a big point as well having access to water on YOUR land is hard to beat whether it’s a spring, creek or river and does the area have good aquifers in other words can a well be put in?
