Leasing Farm Land Is A Growing Trend

No Risk Ranching: Custom Grazing on Leased Land

Leasing farms and farm land is a growing trend.  Some are even able to do it without cash.  In other words, leasing property from urban types who just want their land to be pretty and fertile.  This can be obtained through a good rotational grazing system.  The linked story, however, is a bout a dairy in Washington state in which the farmer was able to lease his farm to another farmer and all is good for both sides, a win-win.  Kind of a feel good article, but it can be used to cause pause for thought to other farmers out there looking for a way to grow their business.

With the price of land getting ever higher, that will be seen more and more, I think.

I most heartily agree.
