Is there land available that can’t be built on and therefore cheaper? If so, how do I find the listings? Searching just brings up Zillow etc or place called Forest VA or Woodlands CA etc.
Do people rent woodland? What I’d really like is a woodland I can manage, harvest lumber, grow mushrooms . . .etc. (This is a total pipe dream)

In my real estate search I found many people hold onto woods for decades, partly for privacy and quiet, partly for conservation, partly for investment, partly because they can’t agree as a family what to do with it.
If you want to discuss on the phone I’m heading out for a chore and I’ll purple mooseage my number.

The 10 acres on Noxon Rd looks about perfect for what you're interested in. It's wooded, there is a stream running through the middle so it's likely un-buidlable, and there is easy road access.

I am currently offering a landshare/lease for folks who want to have a go at permie farming for 3-5 years. I operate in a gift economy, so I'm open to all kinds of arrangments. For years, I've offered grazing for grass fed beeves in exchange for haymaking and meat. I have another fella interested in taking over that arrangement. I have a gal interested in a duck operation. Everyone is going to have to work together so that their operations serve one another and mine. Should be a fun experiment.
You can PM me if this sounds like something you might be interested in. You'd have to bring your own tiny house, or find a home in the village to buy/rent. Heck, you might find something you like here anyway. :)
