I have been looking for farm acreage to purchase (2-10 acres or so) for about a year and have had no luck. Are you aware of any acreage that could be for sale?

Erie County Ohio farmland

Farm properties are regularly on the market throughout the year. You are more likely to find auctions and listings in more agricultural-leaning papers such as Firleands Farmer or Farn & Dairy. The trick is finding the acreage you want with the soil you need in the location that works for the price you can afford. Most small acreage parcels are priced for development rather than agricultural production. I am not surprised you have not found an appropriate place in such a short time--this can be a long term process.
I am unaware of anything of that size currently on the market.
