We may move to Ames eventually. What is the availability of farmland/ acreage 10-30) with a house like? Any way to find cost/ acre? I have a few sheep that will need a pasture.

Also, is there anything to do there, like museums, zoos or other kid friendly attractions?

We live in Stevens Point, WI which is also a smaller University town. How much snow does Iowa get? How hot in the summer? How are the mosquitos/ ticks in the countryside?

That seems like a pretty good sized lot for a typical residential acerage in Story County. This area has very good farmland, some might say that it's not a good idea to take some of it out of production to graze a few sheep. Hope you can find some land not being used for crops.

I think we usually get about 30 inches of snow per season average, swinging greatly from year to year. January daytime highs average around 30, in July it's close to 90 degrees for the average high, plenty of mosquitos but not as agressive and large as the ones you see in northern MN and WI.

Ames is a good sized town, but you would need to come down to Des Moines for some of the kid friendly stuff you mentioned, like the zoo, museums, adventureland park ect.
