Despite "Bubble Fears", Farmland, in the hands of a Farmer, is an investment in the future. I see a slow return of smaller more family-oriented operations after the Stamp Farms LLC debacle last year. It proved Bigger isn't always better. But, beyond land, there are some seriously healthy depreciation opportunities between now and 12/31/2013 for Buildings AND Equipment. If you've been thinking about either, and had a good income last, and especially if you're anticipating a better than typical one this year, either would be a good place to invest in.
