Self-reliance and sustainability in the 21st century.
One of the first steps to creating your own perfect homestead is finding where to put it. If you’re like me, you don’t come from a family who has owned a piece of land for generations and generations, and finding a sweet handful of acres to call your very own is at the top of your priority list.
If you’re looking into buying land, check out our Rural Property for Sale site. The search engine lets you filter the results by state, region, price range, number of acres and type — so you can decide whether you’re looking for agricultural or residential land only (or anything in between). The site makes it all too easy to dream about what your future homestead will look like on two acres in Santa Rosa County, Fla., or on 516 acres in Chaves County, New Mexico, or on 40 acres in Mason County, Wash… so start dreaming!
