HI, I'm newly registered on permies, but have been browsing the forums for several months! My husband and I are looking to pay cash for a small amount (0.5-1 acre) of unrestricted, raw land within about an hour of Branson, MO. We plan to move my mother, a healthy 70-year-old gardener, onto the land to get started on the raised-bed gardens, fruit and nut trees, berries, etc. We would be building for her a passive solar cabin, about 16X32, with solar panels/generator, rain catchment & greywater systems and composting toilet in place of electric, water and septic. So no perk test needed, but southern exposure and vehicular access onto the property is important! Ideally we would be buying additional adjoining land (to total at least 5 acres) in 2-3 years to start on our own off-grid home in which to raise our kids and later retire. We do not need for the property to be income-producing, my mother has retirement income and my husband and I will continue to work in the entertainment industry (scenic design & stage management). Please contact me if you know of any land that may fit! We currently live in Tulsa, OK and need some help from locals to find options that I haven't been able to locate online.
