We are once again on the hunt for some land and are considering South Carolina as one of the handfuls of states we consider moving to. Plan to start small 4-10 acres. Within 40 ish minutes of hospital, as my career is in healthcare. What has been your experience? Land prices? Any recommendations on counties who are homesteader friendly? Or like minded areas? Or conversely, areas to definitely avoid?

Thanks!

Hi Heather, are you on Facebook? There are a couple of good SC Permaculture groups on there that could be really helpful. While I'm in SC, I mostly stick to my own area and can't recommend where to buy or where to avoid. My local community is growing by leaps and bounds with lots of housing developments, so acreage is getting snatched up, but there is still some open land here. Lots of farmer's markets, gardeners, permaculturists, and such if you look hard enough.
 
Are you okay? You look a little big. Maybe this tiny ad will help:
