I can't really help with the issue of buying rural acreage, but I'd pay a lot of attention to water availability and quality. I know rural people whose well water cannot safely be drunk by children or people with health issues (water table contamination due to nearby grazing cattle and/or field fertilizers).

You might want to learn more, a lot more, about working a large garden and raising animals for food before taking the plunge. I've heard of volunteer opportunities on organic farms--parking an RV for free in return for farm labor.

I believe most counties provide free advice on gardening within their borders (what grows well, getting your soil tested, that sort of thing).

PS--I wouldn't do stock speculation in your shoes. Actually, I wouldn't even do it in mine ;-)
