It’s been a rough year to say the least and we’re equal parts excited and scared for what 2021 might hold. The good news is that if things go from bad to worse, Missouri offers a great place to live off the grid. While some states discourage its residents to move to the middle of nowhere, Missouri ranked #3 in a recent study put together by LawnStarter.

LawnStarter weighed how states ranked based on data from categories of each state’s feasibility, infrastructure, climate, cost, and safety. Specific data within these categories considered things such as the average per-acre cost of farmland, the legality of rainwater harvesting, and average monthly temperature.
