They say food shortages will occur in 18 years, and that’s why the wealthy are buying up farmland. This property might be a wise decision. The 1.42 acre is enough property for a garden and some chickens to sustain a family. My son has a small cottage on an acre not far from here, and the countryside is gorgeous.
