Finding the right 5 acres is HARD!
by Catherine Lyon
Myself and Humphrey the cow dog.
After much research (and input), I was able to see a friend's 5 acre pasture and boy it is bigger than I thought. So now I have found out the 5 acres is more than enough for a homestead and for me.
Now that I have that answered, I have been trying to find the RIGHT 5 acres for me. Can you say HARD?!? Either it is all trees and rocky hills (I am searching around Brown County to stay around friends, family, and church), all rocks and barren, partial trees and pasture, but the pasture has been overrun with mesquite and cactus, or it is all pasture with no trees for shade or protection and still lots of cactus.
And this may sound silly, but it has to look just right (although I do not have a picture of what "just right" is), and I have to be able to picture my house, barns, and gardens there.
So I am still looking. Humphrey and I are out looking and walking the different properties for sale (I am sure that we are driving the realtors crazy), and trying to find that property that is "just right!"
