If paying taxes is your primary concern, New Jersey is not the state for you. That’s what New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy once said about the high tax rate in the state when facing criticism. If you’re a woman and you’re into living a rugged outdoorsman type of life, guess what? New Jersey also isn’t the state for you.
“Growing your own crops, herding your cattle, heating your bathwater on the stove — “The Pioneer Woman” star Ree Drummond proves that any city dweller can transition to the self-sustaining rancher,” said Sharon Sullivan, editor of LawnLove.com. “So, where in America could you live like a modern-day Laura Ingalls Wilder or Anne of Green Gables?”

New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Nevada are the wort three states for ranch-lifestyle-seeking women according to the report.
