Move to the Country / Buying a Small Farm

Top Ten Things I Learned Buying a Small Farm
Melissa Matthewson
Publish Date:  Winter 2007
VolNo:  Vol. I No.1

Most recently, my husband and I purchased a small farm in southern Oregon-ten acres in the Applegate Valley, a mixture of pasture, woodland, hills and weeds. We were delighted when we went into escrow and could not wait to be on the land mapping out our ideas and dreams. We did not expect the process to take six months and turn into an arduous and exhausting real estate bonanza.
