There are rural areas in Saratoga County (Schuylerville, Quaker Springs), which is 12 miles from shopping. A little further Greenwich (Washington County).

We have a camp in Lewis County, NY and love the rural feel of the area, but it's a bit too far north for our full time residence. NJ is becoming so over developed and expensive. We hope to find a farm in NY, and have been looking a bit, but can't seem to get a good feel for the different towns within an hour commuting distance to Albany. Right now in NJ we are in a desirable, safe town with good schools. I am looking for something similar but more rural.



I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction of some towns to look further into. We are looking for 50-100 acres (with or without a home) in a rural area that is supportive of agriculture but not too far from basic shopping needs.



At this point, I would be grateful for a recommendation of a good realtor that can help guide us in our decisions. I have yet to find one who is very helpful in guiding us in the right direction.



Thank you in advance!

This is actually a really good suggestion. Greenwich is a nice little town as is Schuylerville. School systems aren't bad either and you're close to Saratoga.
