Topic: I really want acreage on a river where I can raise a little cattle and maybe a pig or two

plant a bunch of fruit trees and nut trees for the longer term and in the near term do some raised bed gardening for year round production with a greenhouse and whatever else I can find to work with.  Probably stock up on different kinds of fertilizer like blood meal and bat bone or whatever else is out there.

The Southeast would be good, Texas, Florida if it wasn't getting so expensive, South Carolina, West Virginia if I could get close to a population center

Looka that shit, 38 acres, privacy, the sounds of nature around you, and the Eastern seaboard a half a day's drive away, which is also far enough away.

That one would be awesome, 28 acres tucked between a mall and a suburban development, all the trees and isolation you want and three minutes from walmart and city water, dang.  That's a good one.

Don’t raise pigs. They escape and become feral nuisance

VP Spiro T Cheney will slaughter anything you bring him, if he can keep the rectum for companionship and/or food

looks good on paper OP but actually maintaining all that shit is more than a full time job for 2 or 3 people at least.

Is it a thing to deliberately release pigs in an area to breed, so you can hunt them later? If you're a bit irresponsible it seems like a great way to get unlimited free food with no effort.

It's weird because a corner of your pond is on someone else's property.  You will own most, but not all of the shoreline.  The property boundaries are jacked.

During the Obama reign when it was reasonable to consider a bugout home, I looked at properties with the about the same requirements: (1) good water source/frontage, (2) forest land, (3) reliable rain, (4) sunshine to make solar work, (5) access to 60k population center in 2.5 hrs driving, (6) fertile agricultural land and pastoral land, and (7) mild climate.

You basically have to pay about 200k (land only) in Missouri, Arkansas, Alabama, Inland/Upstate South Carolina, Oregon, SE Oklahoma.  Everything was already priced beyond 200k.  Drop the mild climate, and Michigan, Colorado, Maine, Idaho, Montana become a possibility.

There are very lazy ways of making some of that land pay off enough that you don't have to pay anything in taxes, but you don't have to be super productive at it.  Enough to feed yourself and take in a certain amount of income from selling your spare grapes or something.  Maybe sell off a half a beef once a year.

Its africans or snow

Amazingly enough I will take the africans, they sharpen you up, plus snow people do not understand that africans are africans and so will allow africans into their homes

You got that right.
Raising animals is a full time job, and expensive.
Forget going on trips, you're at home, feeding the animals.
Then there are the predators.  You have to walk the fences, because your animals are always trying to bust out!
