That’s a pretty common thing- they don’t want to be far from town for a ton of reasons. Most are 5-6 miles at most. (At least in Mitchell/worth/Howard counties)I agree. $5600 an acre is about average for a recreational property in this area. We are fortunate that we bought our farm in 2010 and we got our house and shop built before Covid hit. Our ground would bring about 4x what we paid for it at today's prices.
We don't have any Amish within about 5 miles of us. As a rule of thumb most Davis county Amish farms are within a 10 mile radius of Bloomfield. We are about 15 miles from town. I have asked some of my Amish friends why they have not bought in our area. Their reply was "It's too far from town".
