My husband may get a job in Boulder near Niwot. We would be moving from a farm in North Carolina.
Can anyone tell me any good areas with farm land? We have 10acres here. We also have children in elementary, middle and high school so schools are very important.
This would be such a huge move and I've never been to Co before. It seems like such a big city.

Thanks so much in advance

Well, Denver probably is bigger than the cities in NC. BTW, you live in a beautiful state! It is a big move, but the first piece of advice I can give is, relax!

Boulder Co (Boulder, Niwot, etc) is on the edge of the metro area, so there are some rural areas. There are a few farms in Boulder Co. I know nothing about purchasing land, you would probably have to talk to a realtor. One downer is that there are few 10 acre spreads around here.

You should have no concerns about schools. Boulder Co. has two districts, and both are good. My kids graduated from Monarch High School in the Boulder Valley SD (southern Boulder Co), one graduated summa c u m laude from college and is now in grad school. The other is in college. Kids from these schools go to college all over, including MIT and Stanford. The St. Vrain SD is in northern Boulder Co where Niwot is; I have friends whose kids have gone there and a friend who teaches there and the schools are great. Again, kids go to college all over the place after graduating from there.

Good luck to you!

You might want to check out realtor.com and see what kind of land is available and how much they are wanting for it. That might help you get a better idea.
