Hi everyone, I'm from the UK and I have been seriously considering moving to the states... Therefore I just wanted to start a topic on some of the best places to live and keep chickens in the USA! I just have a few preferences: I would love to be somewhere that's fairly close to the coast and woodland (although it's not essential). I do not want to live in a rough neighbourhood. The type of property must have a few outbuildings (small barn/stable etc.) and at least 1-2 acres of land as a minimum to grow fruit and veg and to keep animals on such as chickens and possibly goats, pigs, sheep, cows etc. The property I choose to buy would need to be fairly cheapish (less than $400,000) Is my dream at all possible and can anyone please suggest some states/areas to start looking?
