    Rental prices.
    Pretty common pasture land is $20 and up. Just saw a guy offering $50/acre for pasture but wanted it within xx miles of the area he lived. I get $5000 for 200 acres of pasture from April 15 to October 15. MIL's 300 or so acres rented for $6500 but some is poor and difficult to access and 2/3 of it is restricted during deer season.
    Row crop land is too variable to post. Anywhere from $75 to 200 per acre depending on condition, soil type,and location.

    $200/acre cash rent. That seems low to me for $10,000/acre farm ground which I would assume is well drained or tiled. Fifty years to break even, more when you add in the property taxes.

    I think your renter is laughing all the way to the bank unless that's river bottom ground and he's losing every three or four crops to flooding.

    1/2 section north of me went for $6500 an acre about 2 months ago. Cash rent is all over the place but generally north of $100 an acre. Dave

    Stupid farmers. $10,000.00+ for farm land? Only if it's next to a huge city.

    Didn't we see this before in the 80's? And we all know how that ended.

    The 1980's was before the world economy.

    $10,000/acre for corporate farms is just chump change. The family farmer is gone forever.[V]

    I have a 40 acre tract for sale - it is what we call "cut over" (it has been timbered about 10 years ago) so it is scrubby mess. I would be tickled pink to get $1500.00 an acre.

    Does this count as a "shameless plug"?

    Ahh, thanks, but nevermind. 1500 is cheep for my area because even worn out farmland or timber stubble wasteland is still several thousand/acre and sold as "super good hunting land of max awesome wonderment to the extreme times 100". How's the deer there?

    I wouldn't say the kids don't want to farm. The cost of starting to farm or starting someone out is beyond most peoples comprehension. And that's with zero guarentee they'll make any money. Dave

    They just want the money from selling off the farm. Lazy, spoiled, and greedy.
