Part of my acreage slopes down like a valley...wanting to level


We are buying 5 acres of wooded land in Oklahoma. The property is covered with grass and trees. Instead of dirt, the first six inches or so is sand. A large portion slopes way down into a valley. I am curious if it is even possible to level this out with hiring a company with big equipment. I don't mind a small slope but I basically want it flat. would we grade the land? Thanks!

How else would you do it? No goo way to do it all by hand.
No way to tell without being there to see it.
Consider just leveling a smaller area by building a retaining wall and back filling.

Just wanting to make sure its even an option that's all. I don't have pictures . I do not want to buy 5 acres of land if I cannot make most of it usable
