A Homestead in the Middle of Nowhere
New to this forum. My partner and I are seriously consider buying a "big plot of land out in the middle of nowhere." We're city people by circumstance, but not by heart. Our goal is to have a piece of land big enough that we can't see our neighbors. We are still in the dreaming stage, but we're putting together a budget. We would like to be able to "homestead" as I've heard it said on this site, or even farm sustainably. I'm bringing along an organic farmer for good measure.
We plan to live simply. So far, besides isolation, we would like to get a plot of land with its own water supply. Other than that, we're pretty open to different climates or locations. I was hoping the members of this forum might share their opinion on where or how to begin our search. Colorado would be nice, but we're worried that land may already be too expensive for us to get the size plot we're after (40+ acres).
Thanks for any input you can share!
