Wondering if any of the preppers out there can give me an idea of how many people a 5 acre plot of land can support.  Momma and I are looking at a piece of property with a house and 10 acres, 5 of it in woods.  It's a nice place, and the woods provide a nice tactical position as well :-)

I'll be looking around for ideas while our realtor formulates our offer.

Prayers would be appreciated for this one.

It'll be nice to own a house again, if this goes through.

Well, there was a book published years ago called "5 Acres and Independence!" You might want to check out "The Have-More Plan" too.

I think I've heard of that first one. Thanks for the tip.

Prayers going your way. Good luck!

I think you could easily support one large or extended family with 5 acres depending on the quality of the soil.

Prayers coming your way.

I think it should work. Check out this California family living on 1/5th of an acre:
