My family and I are interested in buying land in CO to gradually begin the process toward a more sustainable and resilient lifestyle. Does anyone have any input on the best places to look for land in like-minded communities?
I am a realtor in Colorado and a 4th Generation native. I like the western slope of the rockies for what you are looking for. The area around Paonia and Hotchkiss have some wonderful growing environments and some very good sustainable farms. I also like the area around LaJunta which is more farm land and not as mountainous. Give me a call if you would like to discuss. 303-900-3166.
The area around Montrose is also becoming like minded. I have family that have just recently moved there. They are really enjoying it. The shop in either Grand Junction, or Montrose.
I have lived in the mountains of Colorado for 40+ years, and I think the Western slope is a good option.
Good luck on your search!
