You can still but land for cheap in Northern Ontario but the prices are going up fast. The areas around New Liskeard and Cochrane have some very good farmland.

If you are still looking, Oklahoma has tons of places for less than $50,000 usually 4-10 acres, many times with some kind of building on it, sometimes not. all east of Oklahoma City. BE WARNED. We are in yet another prolonged drought, in spit of recent rains. It would take yrs of good rains to re-fill reservoirs and aquafers to were they should be. And some areas the soil is badly depleted and eroded. Water is ALWAYS an issue here. Eight none at all, or way too damned much.

Hi, Annah. I would suggest that you check Ranch Marketing Associates because they have a lot of ranches for sale within the range you mentioned

I would suggest looking for Montana ranches for sale

You can also look on Craigslist for very small acreage.

You can purchase all different acreages and types of farm and ranch land.

I purchased my 4 acres for 49,000. South Appalachia region, very diverse and full of plant culture. The structures are a 100 year old barn (it's ancient and able to be restored, amazing), and a 1000 sq ft house that was built in 1935, the house has slowly been updated among the years but we have no central heat or air. We stay warm with a woodstove, and we have two wells.

Also the land is backed up to the national forest, with hundreds of wild edibles, like sassafras, Sourwood, sumac, wild ginger, paw paws, persimmons, etc. our property has been growing non native things too such as figs, pears, apple, plums, persimmons, grapes, etc. it's pretty diverse , and hard to keep track of.
The US has been a great space for diversity and that's worth a lot for us.

But with the health care, I have yet to be required to pay for any care, I'm still fighting for the single payer program, and will try to avoid any biomedical health care, but I am also more off grid and have been able to get away with not paying so far,.
