Carrie12345 Posted September 24, 2012 Share Posted September 24, 2012 If you've purchased land with the intent to homestead (as opposed to starting right where you happened to live), how did you balance realistic goals with ultimate fantasies? When I browse land online, I'm completely torn between cute 2-5 acre lots ("Oh, I could probably make that work, as long as I give up dreams of growing wheat or raising a cow.") and gorgeous 20 acre+ lots ("Ooh, the possibilities are endless!") Zoning also plays a factor. 2-5acre lots have many more restrictions. Of course, the larger ones cost more, restricting finances for getting things going. And then there are the in between sizes, typically fully wooded, needing a lot of time and money for clearing and land prep. I'm probably a long way off from making any actual decisions, but the thought of making the wrong choice terrifies me! Wherever we wind up, I want it to be permanent. Permanent is a long time!
