If looking for a weekend getaway from a hectic urban life or are eager to get in touch with your inner ranch hand, a small working farm may be just what the doctor orders.
A Ranch in Rural Georgia
Halfway between Atlanta, GA and Tallahassee, FL lies historic Sumter County where an income producing 45-acre ranch in itty-bitty Leslie, GA is available for purchase with an asking price of $185,000.
The property includes 20 acres of mature hardwood forest, 20 acres of row crops and a 3-acre pecan orchard. The agricultural acreage is currently leased out at $800 a month which goes a long way towards paying the mortgage on the property which also includes a 1-acre stocked pond for fishing and a 3 bedroom and 1 bathroom ranch house with a rocking chair friendly front porch that is perfect for settin’ and watching the both the deer and the world go quietly by.

A Contemporary California Compound
A more refined rural retreat can be found just an hour north and west of downtown Los Angeles is the quaint and quirky town of Moorpark, CA where a working 20.7 acre farm (www.RiflemanRoad.com) is listed at $2,495,000.
Surrounded by approximately 18 acres of avocado and lemon orchards is a contemporary residential compound anchored by a custom designed and architecturally distinctive 3 bedroom and 2.5 bathroom farmhouse with a traditional wrap around front porch and a third story lookout perch that provides 360 degree views of the nearby Topa Topa Mountain Range and the Pacific Ocean in the distance.
Connected by a breezeway to the main house is a two-car garage with a fully separate office or studio apartment above. Even more family or friends can be put up in the 2-bedroom and 2 bathroom apartment located atop the newly built barn.
