I realize this is an old topic, but I just wanted to congratulate you on your move. As far as private land and employment opportunities, there are definitely many options. Minot has a variety of industries, including health care, education, and the oil industry, while Sawyer is more rural and agricultural. Travel time between the two towns is only about 20 minutes, so it's possible to live in one and work in the other. Plus, you can ask moving services like Brighton Movers
here to help, so you don't have to do it yourself. Good luck with your move!
