Re: "Hobby farming" or "smallholding" - anyone have experience?

Thanks, roegner!

Good to know, amogles. We know that land is expensive here in CH, hence part of the attraction to the US. We also know that permits etc can get tricky in CH, another attraction to the US. We're trying to balance out all the pros and cons to decide where is best for us and our family.

You do touch on one thing that I'm hoping we can use to our advantage either in CH or USA:

basically everybody is happy to see that somebody has bought and is investing in land that the previous owner had allowed to go to the dogs for way too long.
I've heard more than one story in CH about families getting properties for a much more reasonable price, even after being outbid by other potential buyers, simple because the owners don't want to see their land and family home turned into an investor's project of four apartments etc. Hopefully we can use that to our advantage in our property search, be it CH or USA.
