Buying farms or land in Dillon County is a solid investment and can produce profits in unique ways in this county with a population of about 30,000. This fifth-smallest county in the state is 407 square miles and borders on the North Carolina line below Robeson and Columbus counties. With approximately 182 farms, more than 91,000 acres of Dillon County land is used to raise livestock, poultry and related products as well as others that grow some of the 30 different crops that thrive in the region. There also is a wealth of timberland, some ready for harvesting and some in growth stage. Almost all hunting in the region is on private land, so the opportunities for hunt clubs are wide open.
