    I'd like to find that too. West Virginia has some beautiful little
    farms I've been dreaming about.

    I like realtor.com

    Just pick a state and start searching.

    Well Steve with that kind of money, I don't think you have to worry about cheap farmland. $1.7 million will buy a chunk of property & build a house in any state. I don't know US prices but in Canada, farmland prices vary from province to province.

    Here is a link..

    "We're underpriced in Saskatchewan - we've been underpriced forever," Weber says. "You can't hardly touch land for $1,200 an acre in Manitoba, and walk across the line going west (to Alberta) and it is $1,600 an acre. We've been $400 or $500 an acre here for 10 years."

    If it was me, I would pick the state I want to live in & go from there. Oh, & welcome to the millionaires club. Invested wisely, the return on that money will guarantee you never have to work again.

    I've been looking at farms in CO -- you can still find land for less than $1000 an acre if you don't need to be all that close to the city. There's also a lot of great farm land here in TN that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I hear KY is a great place to find a farm, too. Aw heck -- I'll just sell you my place! [​IMG]

    Not much is cheap here in Colorado, trust me on that one.

    If you want a free state that won't trample on your rights, I guess WY is the place to go. Try to find a part of it that's not windy though.

    I agree with the post two above me! We moved here because we could find the land, and we love the area. Great little spot to be.... right here in Kentucky... [​IMG]

    Tennessee and Kentucky, then some parts of North Carolina would be where I'd start, away from the major cities.
