    Hi to everyone!

    I was contacted today by a recruiter for biotech company in Redfield, Arkansas. Is anyone living around there? I've been wanting my own little farm for so long, I started looking online at real estate around there and it seems I'd be able to get a house and 5 or 10 acres for under $100,000. Oh, this opportunity has got me dreaming. I was figuring it'd be a least a year til I could afford to move back to the midwest and start looking for a place, but if this works out I could end up in Arkansas, with paid relocation! So, if you're living inArkansas and have any advice, I'm all ears.

    I don't have any personal knowledge of the Redfield area - too far south for me.

    Something to be aware of though -
    Redfield is fairly close to the Pine Bluff Arsenal - disposal site of "obsolete" military chemical weapons. They were also talking about disposing biological weapons there as well, but I'm not positive about the outcome of that.

    If you choose to take the job and buy property in the area, it might be advisable to take prevailing wind patterns into consideration.

    welllllll certainly not wanting to hurt anyones feelings who live in the Redfield area...but personally it is not one of the prettiest parts of our state...and there is the arsenal to think of....that land around there is pretty flat land...If you like flat land it is ok...but Arkansas has lots prettier parts of the state....one up side is if your used to having access to cities Little Rock isnt too far...less than 30 miles...
