Subject: RE: Bulk Commodity Growers,,,why Farm?........


Southern Idaho
Agree totally. I hope people keep asking this question. Our farm is run debt free and we make a pretty reliable profit every year and we are STILL asking this question. Why not sell the farm and just invest in real estate to do way less work and easily make more money? So that is what we are doing a little at a time. I've had to convince myself, brother and dad that farming really isn't that great. The way I've been working myself half to death the last few years it hasn't been hard to reach that conclusion. For us the opportunity cost of NOT selling the farm is too great to ignore especially because land is so over-valued in this area.

We have started by selling the portions we least enjoy farming. Where all our land is irrigated the hand-lines in the corners of pivots are the first places to go. We actually met with a land surveyor just today to get started on subdividing 30 acres.
