      With all the oil and gas drilling activity in the area, there is no more cheap land. $6,000 to $20,000/acre now in Reeves
      county around Balmorhea, Saragosa, Pecos, and Toyah. Only a very few have off grid homes on small acreage now
      in this area. Almost all have been bought out and moved away.

    If worse comes to worse, I might be willing to make a deal with people who own off grid land in West Texas. All I would need would be a fourth of an acre where I would build my own home. I don’t have any money. I would need to be sure that I had access to water, hunting, hunting and fishing. Maybe push a wheel barrel 5 miles to town and back.

    Here it is, 5 years later. Most of the abandoned farm land here in west Texas has been bought by Mennonites and put back into farm production…using center pivot irrigation systems….and they are raising feed for dairies
    and feeder cattle operations.

    There are still some small parcels of land….5 to 40 acres available for $500 to $1000 per acre.

    AEP has just covered a SECTION/640 acres with solar panels and are sending the power to San Antonio…..so
    we have PLENTY of sunshine year around to support solar operations off grid.

    In some places the water table is only 20 feet down….or like on my farm….450 feet to Barilla water aquifer.

    Contact the city offices in the area: Balmorhea, Pecos, Toyah, Coyanosa, Pyote, Monahans, Fort Stockton,
    Van Horn….all in west Texas….for more information on what is available.

      Lawrence Greetings. Im looking for a few affordable land plots for starting a small off-grid terrace of my own and was wondering if there is still any land available that you are aware of that is reasonable for the prices you mentioned? If you could email me at itvfbapp@gmail.com I would really like to discuss this opportunity with you if possible. Much thanks for your kind information.

    Land not available any more. Many have moved in, buying up all the available abandoned farm land.
    You’ve all missed the opportunity to own cheap
    farm land in west Texas. Lots of oil and gas drilling activity in the area now.
