Raised in Upper Black Eddy above Doylestown. Used to run 611 North into the Pocono's since I was a kid & the Harley North till early 60's when I headed over to the Nam. Back when the Deer stop was open before some A-hole pulled in & killed the rescue deer they had there. Don't get me wrong, Stroudsburg's a nice lil city. My understanding is that EWF is looking for something way off the beaten path.

I live in Pike County, PA. I like the mountains, it reminds me of back home. I love my house.
What I DON'T like about it is that it's too close to New York and Jersey. Many of the people that live here came from those places and they brought the uncouth, vulgar, rude, pushy, "I'm from New York," total lack of culture and refinement with them. They say that in the store and every where else they shove their way into. Like everybody else is supposed to be somehow impressed that they came from that crap hole. I respond with, "Make both of us happy; Move the hell back from where you came."
I know city people are scared of the dark, but; please, please stop driving with your high beams in everyone else's face.

Look in Tioga County or in that general vicinity. It's far enough away from the cities that you shouldn't be bothered by them. One thing you might be careful about is where there might be a lot of fracking activity.

i'm originally from NJ, sussex county, furthest north-west county of the state. Say about 45-50 years ago it was basically a farming county.Yes there were the people that moved up to the area back then, but they still mainly worked further down the line, and there wasn't no I-80 then. Where i live now is a lot like what home area i grew up in was back then, still open rural country, farms. Yes there are a lot of farms that aren't active or barley active, and the pressure of people looking for a place further out, off beaten path is happening. Which does cause property values to go up some. Yet quantity porperty prices are still reasonable, if not being sold by a land developer, buyer/seller. The land buyer/sellers only see the dollar sign, not the way of life as a motive for investing in areas like this. Which is sad.Older farmers have property, kids, family really want no part of farming or that life.The do want the property, basically for money reasons again. they get it hoild it for a while, and then subdivide it into smaller parcels (10-30acre) lots and sell it. Then the land guys buy them sit on them for a nimber of years and subdivide again. So after a number of years, property to farm is there, but its owned by mulitle owners. Some buildright away, others build eventually, will let you hay it only to keep tax basis in Pa's clean and green lower tax rate. The clean and green does help somewhat to keep property lots to a minimum size of around 10 acres, due to fall back taxes if smaller and built upon for a residence in future date. so its a catch 22 as far as getting a deent size parcel for residence and still keeping a farmette properrty. Theres acreage available, but anything of size to be self sufficient for farming, there going by the way side.

My 2 cents anyway.

I agree with you 100%. Biggest reason I got out of Bucks when my Dad died & my Mom tried to keep the farm going but couldn't, I was in the Nam at the time. When I got back, I hopped on the old panhead just looking for some place to settle at some point. NYS was the most betterer at the time. :) It still has it's Ag. good deals/breaks--plus my age get me a lot of breaks tax wise & the like. Senior discount at the market every wed. LOL--15 yrs ago when I got this place--the house & 8 acres on one side of the Rd. cost $39,000.00--the 107 acres w/ barn across the Rd. ran me $50,000.00--back when graze land was going for $500.00 an acre. WTF things have sure changed. I sold the 107 acres about 5 yrs ago for a decent profit, but did it because of my Mom having to go into Assisted Living. Thanx for the run down on your area my friend.

I needed a place to recover from being covered in horse dung every day. We just closed and I hope everyone will come visit.
