Rental property?

So I own land, but can't live there right now for a variety of reasons. I have a bunch of animals, would love to rent a little house on some land for myself and them, but the only places for rental properties I can find just show apartments and houses in suburbs. Do people in the country never rent out their houses? And if they do - is there a super secret hidden place to look for them?

I am about to rent my house (2000 sq feet, big barn and 12 acres of fenced pasture), but I would never advertise it as being available for rent. I know too many people, and can limit problems by just advertising by word of mouth. In this case I only told my best friend, and they realized if their set of married children split the rent, they could both improve their living conditions. In short, it was on the "rental market" for about 1 minute.


In the country, generally you have to ask around; people do not advertise.


Stay away from Farm Links though; they are essentially scams.

What areas/states are you looking to live in?
 
Farmers know to never drive a tractor near a honey locust tree. But a tiny ad is okay:
