Other People's Farmland

Acres of lawns can be converted to usable farmland.

This isn't just a theory. It's been put into practice by numerous modern farmers. And in times past, it was common practice for farmers to work other people's land. And in essence, when you pay the government a tax on the profits generated, you're cutting them into the deal.

Just as paying taxes isn't just a lot of academic theory, paying for access to land isn't a fanciful theory either. For most people, it's far more practical than buying land.

Let's say you're in an urban environment or suburbs. How can you get your hands on enough land to grow some crops or animals? The answer is very simple.

Some will take cash. Some will do it for the improvements you're making to the property. Some will take a small portion of the product, essentially renting acreage in exchange for a few bags of groceries grown on their property. And some, believe it or not, have seen the land abandoned. They can't do anything with it and just want to see their fertile farmland continue to be useful. Begging for someone to do something with it. In addition, some properties can be bought and can be immediately paid for by selling the timber on the property you're buying. Which is a simply a matter of negotiation and know-how.

So as it turns out, if you want land, access to quality farmland isn't a problem. And for a creative thinker, it's never been a problem.

There are barriers to entry in some farm businesses, but land isn't one of them.

Why doesn't everyone do it?

1) They don't want to be a farmer
2) They don't believe they can do it
3) They don't want to study
4) They don't want to do the work.
