We just moved from NC to KY. I am sorry that you have had a bad experience in NC. I lived in NC all of my life prior to our recent move. I
don't think that most folks in NC hate Northeners. I certainly don't, I married one. We have found that KY is somewhat cheaper than NC. We had hoped to find a place in the country here in KY, but since we have to have high speed internet for our work we were limited. If high speed internet isn't an issue for you I think that you will be able to find the perfect place for your farm at a great price.

I just moved to NC and find they hate Northeners worse then I thought they would. So we are thinking of moving from here.

Also..from anyone who has moved to Kentucky from other states..is, say, the cost of food and home improvement items any cheaper in Kentucky or are they the same price as other states.

Anyone know the names of towns that are like farming towns. I would want to buy some property and keep horses and chickens etc.

Thank you very much in advance for any help you can provide for me!

What I saw statying there for two months: good people, small townish in one way but turning into something bigger....increasing # of outsiders moving in , as is the case in a lot of southern cities these days....not a major job hub but it looked a really nice area to raise kids. Lots of neighborhood parks.

These are some nice small towns within 45 minutes of Lexington that I'd recommend, meet your criteria and have the cheapest land:

Scott County: Sadieville
Franklin County: Forks of Elkhorn, Bridgeport
Mercer County: Harrodsburg, Burgin, Salvisa, Mayo, Kirkwood, McAfee (pronounced MacAfee)
Boyle County: Danville, Perryville, Junction City
Lincoln County: Stanford
Garrard County: Lancaster
Madison County: Waco, Bybee, Berea
Harrison County: Cynthiana

In Bourbon, Woodford, and eastern Anderson Counties, as well as around Georgetown and Nicholasville (all immediately surrounding Lexington,) the land values will still be the most expensive. Of course, compared to parts of N.C., they may be a steal. Bourbon County is generally anti-development and -commerce and it took an act of God to get a Wal-Mart Supercenter there. Scott, Jessamine, and Woodford have the horse farm lands and, naturally, wealthier farmers and owners means higher land values. I don't understand Anderson County's prices, though, b/c it's not very clean, the school system sucks, the land is generally rocky, and it's just far enough detached from Lexington and Louisville that it is truly rural.

I personally do not recommend anything east of Lexington. Think north, west, or south.

What is making you look at KY? What is your profession?

Independence is in Northern KY, it is a suburb of Cincinnati. Between Independence, Florence, Burlington, Erlanger, Union... which are all close to one another, you'll have a lot of options that are reasonably priced. I'm sure the prices will be AT LEAST 1/2 of NJ. Often times you'll be able to find a small home for the same price as a townhome.
