people find the right piece of land for their
self sufficient food producing farm that’s totally off grid.

This is desert, abandoned farm land all around for many miles. Mennonites are moving in, buying up the abandoned farm land, and making it
produce again. Land is cheap…$100-300 an acre. [landbuddy_listing id=390 youtube=null]

    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.

    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.
