L'infini roulé blanc de ta nuque à tes reins

Sugar Ridge, Ohio

I am writing a story in which the main character ends up on a farm in the rural south of the United States. Being from Europe, I know very little of what the best places to set this story are, and I know very little of what the different places look like and such beyond what Google maps provides me with. Picking a random-ish place (I just got a new teacher from Bowling Green, Ohio) the little yellow Google maps man and I ended up in Sugar Ridge, Ohio.

My question is if anyone here can tell me anything about Sugar Ridge. There is almost no information available about Sugar Ridge, so what I would like to know is what kind of farms are there (for example are there ranches or is the farming aimed mostly at like, corn or something), and if anyone on here is or knows someone from Sugar Ridge? What is life like there?

Looking at the map I noticed there are a lot of "lakes" that look man-made, what's the purpose of those?
Also, I didn't see anything that would qualify as a town-center, so would people from Sugar Ridge have to travel far for schools and groceries? Hospitals?

Then, if it turns out that Sugar Ridge is not the kind of place I'm looking to set my story in, what would you recommend me based on the facts that it has to be in the rural south, and preferably a place that has horse ranches.

As I said, my own searching didn't turn out to be very useful, and I would love it if anyone could give me some information. Thank you in advance!

ETA: Oops, I kind of knew Ohio wasn't considered South... I was just thinking about rural South and then looked on the map, came across Ohio and totally forgot about everything. Like I said, I know very little about the US and life in the US and such besides what I hear on the news and such /o\
