If you’re like most people who want to buy a farm in Florida, here’s what you need to consider:
- What you’re using it for
- Size and included amenities
- Farmable space
- Access to services
What Will You Farm?
If you’re going to make a living off the land, you’ll need a different type of farm than you would if you simply plan to create a huge garden and have ample space around your home.
Size and Included Amenities
The size of the farm you need – as well as the included amenities – depends on what you’re using it for. You may need fences, barns and other structures to keep animals penned in, store your vehicles and equipment, and outbuildings for other purposes. (Don’t forget the house!)
Even if you buy a large plot of land, some of it might not be farmable. Make sure your Lake City Realtor® knows just how much space you need.
Access to Services
When you buy a farm, retail areas and other community services are likely to be farther away than they would be if you lived in a city. How far are you willing to drive for groceries, restaurants and other services? How far are fire departments, hospitals and police stations? Make sure you consider how long it will take you to get to the things you need (or for them to get to you).
