Heya folks, [first of all I hope this is in the right forum] I'm quite new to this forum & permaculture in general.

I'm currently looking for a few acres in North Carolina to create a forest garden on. I currently live on Roanoke Island in the Outer Banks. I want to find land inland as I doubt this island will even be here in 30 years. I have a few fig trees, grapes & pear trees as well as 4 chickens & grow a little bit of herbs & vegetables, though there is so much more I have to do!

I have a very limited budget, but I've found these two places which are in my price range. [Photos are included]:

http://www.carolinaforestry.com/north-carolina/vance/sb/vance-county-nc-land-for-sale.html
This land has two tracts each 5.24 acres for $39,000. One is all pasture & the other has about an acre of woods. Both sites are perk'd.

http://www.carolinaforestry.com/north-carolina/granville/goshen-farms/land-for-sale-granville-county.html
This piece is 5.9 for $34,000. It is mostly mature hardwoods & has a cleared homesite.


I am going to personally go visit each of these properties & possibly continue searching before I do anything.

Any feedback would be helpful

Also, if you personally have land for sale or find some that you think I may be interested in please let me know!

Cheers

have you considered south-west virginia?  land is less expensive for something very similar.  i've been looking between asheville and roanoke and find better prices in virginia.

if i were looking for land, having some trees is better than none.

good luck.

with all the flooding there recently  I'd likely pick the one less likely to flood. Myself I would love to have the option of already grown trees, but I also live in Michigan and heat with wood, I guess a lot depends on what you plan to use the land for.

Can you move any of your existing trees?
