Looking for land in Tennessee

HI, Im brand new to this forum, I just found it while searching again for potential retirement property in TN. Our plan is to purchase 20ish acres in about 4 to 6 years and spend 2 to 3 years getting everything situated on it before we move to it. We know it will be somewhere in TN, we both have family scattered all over the state, but I have been more focused on the western/middle parts. I joined this group because permaculture captured my interest years ago, and we would like to have neighbors that have the same mindset. Is there a forum in this group somewhere that shares out info about land for sale near them?

Thanks for any advice
Terry

I would recommend the area around the Tennessee River if you are set on Middle to West TN. Land in this area if pretty and affordable, for the most part. I am a firefighter in Memphis, and it is a very poor area ridden with violent crime. Not a good place to raise a family at all. My wife and I are currently trying to buy land in the Cookeville/Crossville area, between Nashville and Knoxville.

I've been looking for Tn land too. Have been looking from Pickett up to Sumner counties, although Sumner is too expensive. Wish I could find an IC community around those areas.
