I think your goal is too low to start a field. Have you looked at zoning, electrical needs, air compressors and all the other stuff it takes to run a field? I just sold my field to spend more time with my family but it takes a lot of work to make it successful.
No way? Spending time with family is always the most important goal, but I kind of assumed you would be running that field for forever.
PaintTactics, be sure you're thinking about every dotted i and crossed t. Electrical needs, compressor costs, bathroom and utilities, land maintenance/landscaping - that's the mundane stuff that will kill you. Even if you're doing it on the cheap it can still be significant "hidden" costs.
