Hopefully soon, I'll be selling my little company and coming into a bit of money. With that, my wife and I have all but decided to grab some acreage and try our hand at farming & ranching. Here's the question: If all things were the same (except price, of course) and we had the ability to purchase 800 acres or 50 acres, which should we purchase? I'm asking this simply because there's a LOT I don't know and it seems like the size of the property is a good place to start educating myself. For more background: We want to create a leisurely profit off the farm. It should sustain itself financially and feed our family, but doesn't have to generate a massive income. We'd like crops, solar power, cows, chickens and plenty of quiet space to relax. Thoughts? Advice? Criticisms?
