Looking for a place in the middle of nowhere with a big black horse and a cherry tree...

My dream is to find a place, somewhere, remote, very rural, where I can raise a few crops for food, maybe keep a horse and goat and chickens, and live as self-sufficiently as possible... I'm living in a van at the moment so tough dwelling isn't an issue. I'm not stuck on staying in America, either. Also don't care about community, schools, etc; I want to be a hermit. I just want cheap land that I can buy outright and make a bare living, either buying bulk from town every few months, or even living off food stamps. A place with river or fresh water access would be ideal. I found this thread: Homesteader Help
but it's a little old and I was wondering if anyone had any new sites to try, or advice to offer.
