When we found our land a few weeks ago, I made extensive use of a new resource available mainly, I think, for those who'll be moving to rural area. This provides available information on specific soil types for your land, along with a wealth of info. on the possible uses. For example, it tells us that about 1/4 or a bit more of our land is not buildablewithout extensive issues, and the rest should be fine for building. We also know what we can most likely grow there, how much the yield might be expected to be, etc.http://websoilsurvey.nrcs.usda.gov/app/Of course, check with your county ag. extension agent to check this out, and check it out yourself before you buy.PennyWhat a GREAT website that is!! I plugged in my neighbor's address because I haven't built on my 23 acres yet and I was able to get a soil survey on the whole thing including information on ponding, flooding and frost. Thanks alot for that link!Frances
