Searching for right town in SC or NC for natural living communities
We are thinking of moving south from New England for warmth, land, gardening/farming and a more family friendly crunchy community.
We are leaning towards SC just to get the slightly warmer weather, but are open to NC as well.
Right now our area options are open/wide but my husband would need to find an engineering job within a 45 minute drive to home so not extremely remote (though I would enjoy that :-).
Are there any towns/areas that people could suggest that might help get us started on our search?
I have heard good things about Asheville and Boone but have no experience personally visiting them.
Important things for us are topics like farm fresh food/co-ops, raw dairy, pasture raised meat directly from local farmer, wild animal meats, EBFeeding, homeschooling communities, outdoor natural play and learning, home birthing.
Any thought would be greatly appreciated and who knows, maybe I'll meet you someday :-)
