You didn't mention where you are looking, but we have 30 acres in SW Virginia in the Blue Ridge foothills and are looking to add a few folks to our Permaculture community. There is a central core with barn, sheds, gardens, camphouse (single-wide trailer) and several home sites and grazing land surrounded by forest. Intention is to live independently but farm cooperatively. Share equipment and tools and help each other with heavy work, while each having own special skills to contribute to the community.
Land is currently in first founder's name, but will be placed in a farmland trust as soon as trust docs are completed and filed. Each member will get a 99-year lease on an acre or more depending on number of beneficial units of trust purchased and hours of community service pledged. Founders have contributed down payment on the land, credit to finance mortgage, cost of solar power system, new Kubota tractor and implements, and other farm equipment, rehab of camphouse, new well pump, etc. Greenhouse to be added soon. Cost per unit still being worked out, but will be quite affordable compared to buying or leasing a few acres on your own.
Joy and abundance, Cory

Around here the best way to find a few acres is to stop and ask around in the area you are looking. we lease out 2 acres to a local farmer and our neighbour and the previous owner of this house lease him another 1+2 right next to us. I think he just talks to everyone and looks for land that isn't in use.
