The barrier to land ownership has always been the price. When I was young bottom ground was $200 an acre and that was expensive. The good news is it doesn’t take a large parcel to kill ducks. Find a few friends and buy 20 acres. You’ll be glad you did.Well depends on your perspective. But for the majority of us who don’t own land, the “barrier-to-entry” getting taller by the minute is either irrelevant or bad news.
I can’t think of a scenario where land getting more expensive is a good thing unless you own the land.
Absolutely! But even when adjusted for inflation, land prices have soared the past decade or so.The barrier to land ownership has always been the price.

i am ignorant to most things farming other than it’s expensive af for diesel, fertilizer, equipment, etc. can you not enroll into those federal programs nowadays due to the programs being gone or something?Diesel cost are hor rible running 3 tractors will cost over $2000 a day running 10-12 hrs a day a 8560 deere will burn 200 gallon day pulling a disc or landoll so if you spending over $10,000 a week in fuel there is very little profit to be had. A new combine is 750k or more big tractor is 500k we make 1 million dollars a year spend about 1.1 million in expenses. Only farmers that are really doing well are all enrolled all of the federal programs I have a neighbor that farms 10,000 + acres and get over a million dollars a year in subsidiary payments plus what their crops makes is icing on the cake
My taxes on .21 acres are getting close to 5k…. guarantee my JOCO house is worth a whole lot less than 206 acres plus a house… perspective mattersFarm ground at 6000 an acre will never pay for its self in a single lifetime. Higher prices also drives up property taxes to stupid rates. My 206 acres with a house on it, taxes are nearly 5 k a year we are lucky if the farm proceeds will make the tax bill after expenses. Over 500 dollars a acre to plant corn need 150+ bushel corn to make money last year it was 30 bushel an acre so we lost our arse
