I have been exploring some locations in Kentucky and Ohio, and considering southern Indiana. One - the Bowling Green area (25 mile radius - also Glasgow and Edmonton); the Danville area (25 mile radius - Harrodsburg to Hustonville, etc); and west of Cincinnati (Hillsboro to Athens). I would consider southern Indiana as well (proximity to Louisville). I have been on a trip to see the Kentucky and Ohio areas - and am looking for a small farm (7 to 24 acres) for retirement between $90,000 and $150,000 up). I have seen a number of farms on the internet as well and read all applicable threads here. I grew up in Cincinnati many years ago and want to get back to the simpler areas and friendlier people from the West Coast. Property is just too expensive out here. Pros and cons?

In the Louisville area my picks would be Harrison Co, IN or Henry Co KY. Mercer and Boyle Cos near Danville are also very nice and near Lexington & Louisville

The Bowling Green area has MAJOR sinkhole problems, and a lot of population growth, so I'd look elsewhere

If you look around Franklin, KY you would be within 10-15 miles of Bowling Green and within 35-40 miles or so from Nashville. Bowling Green would offer most of your shopping and entertainment needs, but you would be a very easy drive from a major city that is very vibrant.
