While 5 acres sounds like a great number, there is really more to it. You need to look at the shape of the land you want to purchase and the location of neighbors' homes. Square vs. rectangle can really make a difference to the neighbor that has to listen to 4-wheeler noise.

Technically, if the land is unplatted there shouldn't be any convenants to worry about. Double check with the county planning and zoning commission. If the land is unrestricted, just try to be considerate but enjoy life!!

Acreage 5+ should be enough to lessen the chance of griping neighbors.

Oh well another question which requires a lot more input....
First and foremost does your county or town allow chickens and goats, and if so are there limits
to how much land you have to own, or how many of them you can have?

As far as neighbors are concerned the closer you are to each other the more you should be considerate of
your neighbors any noise that can be considered bothersome, should be kept to a minimum unless the
lots are large and far apart. But often two dogs barking all day is considered nuisance and they owners will
have to find a way to limit the barking etc. just an example.

But first find out what the county / village / town actually allows you to do, farm land is a different story of course.

Always before doing it, check with the local authorities .....
Good Luck to you...

It will depend on the neighbors. There are many people who keep chickens in Manhattan, just without Roosters, and manage to hide the fact from the folks on all neighboring apartments.

Do you think 5 acres will be enough...quads can be noisy and tend to extend beyond normal boundaries?
We would recommend checking local codes and regulations prior to making a commitment.

Vroom, cluck, and baah,
