Re: Invest in Farmland?

Farmland in North America has been on an absolute tear. Prices are astronomical. I think its an astute long term investment, provided the land is profitable. I spoke to the guy renting my land out in SE Sask. last week and he said that land was selling for 170 K to 180 K per quarter and that is lan...
