Looking for a Cattle Farm in Middle Tennessee

Hi. I was raised on a cattle farm in Oklahoma. As my wife and I are about 10 years from retirement we want to raise cattle again and looking forward to it. We were trying to see if we could do it near Murfreesboro or within 40 min drive from Murfreesboro. So, much has changed since I grew up on raising cattle that we have been educating ourselves, coming up with a business plan and see if we can find the land, which seems to be impossible to find, the costs are so high for land. Any suggestions or ideas are welcomed. If anyone has some land, please let us know. We look forward to learning as much as we can before we begin our new chapter in our lives.

I know there's a lot of cattle around Smithville, and it's far enough from Nashville you might find some ground a little cheaper.

My place is about 15 minutes south of Murfreesboro. Land prices in my area vary from 4-8 thousand an acre. Im only 34, but when I was a kid it was nothing but gravel roads and farmland. Now there is a subdivision coming up on each corner seems like. City folks wanting a 5 acre ranch.

There is a lot of good pasture land more in the 2,500 range west of me around Lawrenceburg / Waynesboro area if its not too far out of the way.

No sir we sure aren't. Land in your area probably well over 10,000 an acre I would assume.

No, we haven't. It doesn't look too far from Murfreesboro. Overall, are prices fairly reasonable in the area?

Would you know the going price per acre in the Smithville area? It's close enough to M'boro that it may be a serious contender. We appreciate it.

Smithville is nice, prices should be a bit lower but I really don't have a basis for you.

I don't really know the prices to be honest, I've never really looked at land over there. This is something I found with a quick google search. Half pasture, half cropland, with a small barn on it for about $3,500 an acre.
