Prince Edward Island is the ideal location to pursue your 'hobby farm' or 'mini-farm' dream. It's an amazing lifestyle that allows you to grow your own vegetables, raise chickens for eggs and meat, and become more self-sufficient. In a crazy world, PEI is a healthy, safe, and absolutley gorgeous location to pursue the ideals of the Canadian rural lifestyle. And unlike many parts of Canada where living the rural dream means being far removed from urban comforts, Charlottetown and smaller Island towns provide all that life has to offer within easy reach. The laid back attitude of its inhabitants and warm water beaches, along with mild winters compared with central Canada, make it an Island paradise well worth consideration, whether you're raising a young family or approaching retirement.
A typical PEI hobby farm can range from a few acres to ten or even up to a hundred or more. A local farmer can always rent any land you don't wish to farm and farmland is an amazing investment today in PEI. One hobby farm currently for sale in Southeast Queen's county offers a former church manse that is in excellent condition with loads of original detail and character. The seven acre property rolls down to a stream where you can launch a canoe and the private orchard with 150 mature fruit trees is beyond impressive. And all for around $200,000, which likely wouldn't buy a bachelor condo in downtown Vancouver or Toronto.
