Hi all!

My husband and I currently live in the triad area of NC and are considering moving to the Brunswick County area. We are young (24 years old) and no kids yet. We have a small farm and would want to bring our animals with us. How are the schools in Brunswick County? I was looking into the Winnabow area because it seems to have a good bit of farm land. Any information, guidance, and help would be so greatly appreciated!

Schools in Brunswick are generally average to slightly above average. More detailed info can be found here:

Winnabow isn't too far from Leland, which has some shopping restaurants, etc. Its typically not an area that would appeal to 20 somethings, but if you're looking for rural farm life it probably will work.

We are used to small town life and prefer to be away from all the hustle and bustle - not your typical 20 somethings. I am checking out the link you shared now, thanks so much!

Brunswick county is growing very fast, and new subdivisions are popping up everywhere. You might want to pick your land with that in mind...if you don't want to end up next to a new neighborhood, don't pick a site that has much future development potential. West of Hwy. 17 would be my recommendation. Taxes in Brunswick County are very low.

Are jobs a consideration?

Yeah we would definitely prefer not to end up next to a new neighborhood so thank you for that info! My husband is in law enforcement so it should not be too hard for him to find a job. I work in an office and do photography on the side so it would probably be a little tougher for me to find something. I have been looking a little at job postings in Leland & Wilmington.
