As an investment tool, farmland has been one of the most consistent income producers in American history. Approximately 40 percent of land in the United States is farmland, with the agricultural sector generating an estimated net income of almost $100 billion each year. Most of the country’s farmland is given over to pastureland for cattle grazing, followed by cropland for the production of crops including corn, wheat, soybean, and rice. Farms for sale in the U.S. include everything from large cattle farms in states including Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas to fruit and vegetable farms in California and Florida to dairy farms in Wisconsin, Vermont, and Pennsylvania. The increasing popularity of organically-certified food has resulted in the growth of small organic farms producing everything from eggs to apples to lettuce.
