Thank you all for the warm welcome. Planning stage has started.
Good start.

First thing is to keep in mind what your land is like. What part gets the most sunshine? How does it drain? Which way do most of the winds come from? Do you have any timber, stone, springs, wells or other assets already in place? If you don't have a house or barn, where do you want them? And a million more things...It can be daunting, just in the planning stage.

So plan the same way you would, as if you were eating an elephant...One bite at a time. Take a subject like land and what assets it has and break it down into smaller bites. Take each subject and do the same. Plan for long term and for short term. After you're in place and have started, revisit your short term stuff every year and your long term stuff every five years.

Just remember, no plan is perfect. Some things work, some things don't. But that's half the fun, isn't it?:)
