Are we even supposed to be shocked by this study?

I came across this recent survey done by Lawn Love. The site ranked all 50 states based solely off of their suitability for the people their to live life like a "pioneer woman."

In these states, If you're interested in being the next pioneer woman, farming, or just want to live off the grid, these places are probably your go-to.

These rankings were decided based off of several factors. They include the following categories: most-off grid lifestyle-friendly, least off-grid lifestyle-friendly, most farming and ranching-friendly, least farming and ranching-friendly, highest share of farms with female head farmer, and lowest share of farms with female head farmer.

Iowa obviously ranks pretty high up there thanks to all of the beautiful farmland we've got here!

Here are the best states to live in (or move to) if you want to live like it's 1883!
