Tips for seeking out land to farm
- Make sure that you are on the same page with the land owner BEFORE you enter the deal.
- Curtis gives his landowners about $80 to $150 a month in produce. That roughly equates out to the amount that the landowner would have to spend per month if they paid someone to maintain the land.
- Don’t be fixed on buying land. Leasing, renting, or trading for access to land is a low risk way to start and may make more financial sense in the long run.
