*cross posted in real estate forum* We are looking for a farm to lease/rent in South Carolina. We have sheep, chickens and ducks, cats and dogs. I really don't want to sell all of our animals and start over. Hubby is from South Carolina, and wants to go home. This is unexpected as we just began setting up our farm here last year, but we just got back from spending two weeks there for his father's funeral and hubby feels the need to go back and be with his family. I've been looking online, and I can't find ANY kind of self sufficient homestead like we have here, with gardens and fruit trees and wood stove and chicken coop, etc. If we found the right place we might eventually buy, but from what I've seen so far I don't think people "homestead" like we do here in Kansas! All I can find are 5 acre "yards" or 100 acre million dollar plantations. If anyone knows of a place, please let me know. We would like to be in the Sumter/Santee/St Matthews area, but we will look at anything. Thanks! Also, do people homestead in South Carolina? I haven't even seen any real estate for sale that would fit our farm life. It goes against my S&EP mantra to move to the coast, but that is where hubbby is happy.
