I’m not sure what the prices are out there these days. The things you need to look for are rules for the county. Some counties have a moritorium on subdividing. And some have rules about what constitutes an “outbuilding”. In mine it has to be max 120 sq ft and 14 ft tall so not all regulations can be worked around and not all county regulators are pushovers. It’s best to find an area with rules you can work with. All of them that I’ve seen have a website that you can scan through. As long as you aren’t in a subdivision where they tell you where you can put your well, building etc.
When I was looking I put an ad in a paper. I know that was decades ago, but I would recommend is driving around and finding an area you are interested in and put an ad in the local paper or grocery store. Sometimes people have a piece of land they are sitting on and would sell if there is interest. Good luck!

This is very good advice.
My parents live in a small town in NWO, all the services you could want, even a Walmart.

Now that he has a particular form of glaucoma, he is driving 4 hours every 1-2 weeks for an eye specialist in Winnipeg... which means that he is getting a ride and dependent on my mother taking time off work or one of his nephews driving him if they aren't busy. Seclusion is nice but consider what it will be like once the ravages of time start to kick in!
