Hi everyone, I am new to this forum and would like opinions on NE Ohio. We are looking to move this summer (from Phx). I'm from Warren and grew up in Niles. Moved to AZ 30 yrs ago(I was 12) We want to run a small farm, cattle ect.. My husband grew up on a farm in Iowa, I miss the seasons and "small town".
We have 3 kids so good schools are important. I'm a little worried about moving back to the "bible belt." I'm pretty open minded and I know moving somewhere rural probably will have very conservative people. I'm OK with that as long as they can respect my opinions also.
We have lots of different ideas to earn a living, so that's not to much of a concern(ok, maybe a little) This is a one way ticket, we both are self employed so it's not like we can come back to our old jobs.
I have been tired of the city for a LONG time.. The time feels right to move. We will be out there in a few weeks and have an opportunity to buy a farm in Kinsman but were open to other areas of course. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Kinsman sounds fine for what you are looking for. That is definitely a rural farm community. I know a family that owns an apple orchard in St. Clairsville.
(Where our Mcintosh apples come from!).

There's probably only one stop light in Kinsman.

Just keep in mind Ohio is NOT in the 'bible belt". The more rural areas may seem like bible belt areas but TECHNICALLY speaking it is not. That is much farther south.

I think you can find some really great properties in the rural areas of Trumbull Co. As you probably know Kinsman is Badger Schools, it's a small system, but they have a brand new school on Rt 7 and it looks really nice. I don't think you'll run into too much "bible belt" mentality around here, so i wouldn't worry about that. I would also look into Vernon, Gustdavus (sp?), Mecca, Johnson, Fowler, Bazetta, maybe Bristol or West Farmington.

Yeah, also try Labrae or Cortland too. Also, NE Ohio isn't "bible belt" at all; it's actually quite heavily Democrat and the cities such as Cleveland & Akron are very liberal. Lots of Catholics. The culture is more like New England here than Ohio.

Thanks for all the info. Glad to hear people are more open minded than I thought. We will be there next weekend, any snow left on the ground? Anyone know anything about any "farm loan programs"? I've been on the dept of ag website but it's a little confusing. Thanks again!
