Hello everyone, Coming to you guys again for assistance and support of thought. Recently with how things have been with the economy( I know everyone knows that) soo many things have changed. One thing in particular that has caught my attention has been land prices. I have noticed that land has lowered around my area, and one thing for sure is that land over here isnt cheap to come around. Recently I have been thinking if I should invest in land. I have always wanted to have a type of farm to keep animals, have some crops and use it as family use. One thing though that is of concern is of course money but I am dong research to see if I can find something good around my area. I have seen land with 2 acres(way too expensive) and 5 acres to 40. What I am wanting to know/ask and appreciate the help is... 1.How has land value been in your area with this economy?? 2. What would you guys recomend in land amount? Minimum: ? acres Upto Max: 40 acres... I would like to have of course..Chickens, some cows(is there an amount of land required for cows?) goats, maybe some horses, and I would love to grow some fruit trees and some other crops. If I could get all 40 acres in a property, I would but I also have to check on the price and distance.....Which comes to my last question...What do you think the maximum distance should be from my home? Max an hour? I appreciate the help, suggestions, tips, and even recomendations from your past experiences! Thank you soo much fellow BYC'ers!
