There is some self satisfaction to farming your own land. If you owned enough land then a person could make it work just farming your own land. I've always had to rent some land along with buying land because I never could make the land pay it's own way without subsidizing it for a few years with income from rented land.
Then there's the machinery issue. I don't have all new stuff but I kind of like a tractor with a cab and etc. There again, unless you have a LOT of owned and paid for land it's tough to have much for equipment.
