    Hey Y'all, I'm pretty excited on this new journey God has me on! I'll be looking to buy a small 5+acre farm in Eastern Tennessee come by the end of the summer. I lived in the Asheville area for three years and lived on a 4 acre horse ranch and had some Black Austrolorps and RIR's. I absolutely fell in love with chickens and can't wait to acquire a home in the country and start living the dream of the farm life!

    As I'm looking in certain area's any tips on towns to avoid due to strict restrictions? I'm to hoping to acquire some land as close to Asheville area as possible due to my church family being there.
