Hey everyone! I'm here to learn as much as I can after deciding to move rural. I almost had my hands on a 1.4 acre plot, but someone offered a higher price before me, so I'm now choosing between some quarter acre lots. I'm still hoping to make it work wonderfully with all the information here. From what I've seen without even being signed up, I think I'm in a good place!

I raise ducks and I'm dreaming of a huge food garden. I decided to move rural after I worked my arse off making my little 2000 sq ft backyard in the city work for me, only to have some city trimmers come and completely uproot all my teeny tiny 3-4 foot tall mulberry saplings, claiming they were "trimming anything near the powerlines". My ass. The plants were nowhere near the lines and they tore them up instead of trimming.

So after that heartbreak and, with my heart set on owning a little piggy or two, I'm running for the woods! I found a sweet little rural town whose building official even waved the minimum house size requirement to allow me to build a little cottage. Everyone I met seems incredibly friendly and super supportive of my plans. I couldn't be more excited!
