Oh Nuts, I'm the one who has to go negative again:

A degree in biology and you want to do organic farming? That raises a red flags for me.

Organic farming is the least productive, least nutritious, most wasteful farming we have in modern times. Heck it even routinely fails taste tests.

Good luck man. I suggest you start advertising on liberal college websites and use words like commune, mother gia, and back to earth. Be open to questionable herbs and nudity if you really want to make a go of this.

Critical thinking is great. I agree that advertising at a college she might have found a lot more interest. I didn't think that because she didn't get her degree in organic farming it might not be legitimate. The things I studied in college and received certification for, I'm less confident in when compared to the thing's I tried to learn out of interest. What she expressed interest in doing doesn't line up with my interest's and goal's exactly but, if it were local? I might have been able to learn something. I'm considering asking a few local Mennonite family's to see if they need a hand and it's mainly because I learn best threw experience.

Reread me. I didn't question her qualifications for organic farming. Nor did I implie she was illegitimate. I only questioned why someone with a degree in biology and I hope a brain would be interested in organic farming.

And I thought I was helpful if slightly mocking (okay more than slightly) in suggesting a path to find people to undertake this project.

Your right, the word legitimacy is not in your post but, the term "red flag" denoted it. My interpretation and not everybody's gonna look at it that way but, a few might.

The last property I found is in Pelzer, SC just on the doorstep of Greenville. It has 2 houses that both need some work and right now a tenant is renting part of the land for a mobile home. It isn’t nearly the acreage I would want, but the asking price is only $88,000.

Some houses that need work could end up costing you a lot more than you think. If it doesn't have a good working septic system, cistern, well, weeping tile, window's and insulation, It may cost a lot to be energy efficient, self-sustaining and comfortable.

Organic farming is the least productive, least nutritious, most wasteful farming we have in modern times. Heck it even routinely fails taste tests.
I am in no mood this morning to argue with another fool on the net so I will just tell you to go toe Hell.

That's the most ignorant, outrageous statement I have read in a looooong time!. Care to document your basis for said statement?

I admit that I don't know whether that is true or not, but I'd sure like to hear other opinions.

I am not in realty, but I bet these days you can find a better deal, esp. in Ky.
