Moved from Kentucky/Tennessee region and really missed the farm living (+15 acres) there. Is it possible at all to find a farm house here in South Florida? My partner and I drove by Pembroke Pines and Weston area close to the Everglades and wonder if there're any in those places.

Yes, there are properties that large in Davie, Southwest Ranches and Parkland. I would have said they're unbelievably expensive just a year ago, now, they're just really, really expensive. Figure a minimum of $200K an acre (rose to a high of 500K an acre in 06). If you want a rural type community with houses over an acre that allow horses look at Oakhill in West Davie. Older houses there on an acre have slipped to the 3-400K range.

You can also look up into Palm Beach and Martin Counties, in the Western Communities areas of both.

It's far north of here, but Fellsmere, west of Vero Beach in Martin County, should have some affordable property as well.

Look in western Palm Beach and western Martin Counties. Also try western Saint Lucie County. It also depends on where you will be working. You don't wanna move too far north or else the commute will be bad.
