Sun exposure question

Good morning! First off, I'm new here, so I apologize if this question doesn't belong here.

I've got a question about a land purchase I'm looking to make. Everything I've heard and read says southern exposure on the hill is best. The piece of land I'm considering is directly north facing. Considering the details below, does this sound like a bad idea? I'm looking to garden and keep some horses, but not much more than that (maybe build a narrow gauge railroad (for chores of course!!)). Does anyone have experience with north facing sun exposure?

Latitude: 48*
Acres: 28
Hill is facing directly north
Hill grade is 6*, or about 10%
Summer sun angles in at 66*, winter at 18*

Thanks for your thoughts!
