Would like to start a farm and become self sustaining
I was wondering if anyone could offer some areas in the united states for farming. My husband and I are newlyweds and we are looking to move somewhere to start our own farm. It doesn't have to be a large farm.. maybe 20-50 acres..But something that isn't extremely humid like Florida region, but not freezing like Michigan. I have been doing a little research and heard that Illinois and Indiana are very good states. We are not growing anything specific, we would just like to be able to survive off whatever we grow in a greenhouse as well as farming the land. I am looking for something near a small town that is family oriented in hopes that we will someday raise a family.However not anything in the sticks where the closest store is 3 hours away either.. lol Any suggestions of nice little towns or areas to live, or maybe other states that have very good soil?
Any tips or help would be appreciated.
