WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR FARMLAND INVESTMENT
After deciding to invest in Whiteside County Illinois farms for sale, there are a few different ways to make the most out of your new farmland investment. You may or may not want to take a hands on approach with your new land. Even if you plan on handing the reins over to a land manager, it’s still important that you decide an operational plan for the property in order to hire the right people.
Some of the most common uses of farm land for sale in Whiteside County Illinois are:
There are a few different options when running a horse ranch. Owners of horse ranches can breed, train, or board horses, as well as offer riding lessons to the public. Depending on the extent of what you want to do with your property, you can do a combination of any of these activities. Your investment property would need to include barns with stalls, pastures that can be closed with a gate, plenty of land, horses, and insurance. You will need to hire a barn manager, groomers, trainers, caretakers, and have plenty of stable hands to keep your horse ranch running successfully.
If you decide to turn your investment farmland into an agricultural farm, you must determine the types of crops that will be harvested. Corn and soybeans are two crops that are known to grow well in Illinois and be in high demand throughout the rest of the country. Dairy farms are also well needed in Illinois, as well as beef farms. Your investment farm can be strictly livestock, or crops, or it can be a combination of the two. Fruits, vegetables, wheat, and oats are also high in demand and grown easily in Illinois. Whether operating the land yourself, or hiring a farmer to run the land, agricultural farmland needs to be well equipped with a residential living area, barns, and padlocked gates.
An easy way to get the most out of your Whiteside County Illinois farm land for sale is to lease the land for recreational use to hunters and fishermen. This will require you to educate yourself on the rules and regulations of hunting and fishing in Illinois and where to get the right permits to allow it on your property. If recreation land is of interest, we recommend hiring a farmland real estate broker to help you find the right property for hunters and fishermen. Depending on the season, hunters will commonly go after deer, turkey, waterfowl/dove/game birds, furbearers, and other small game. A knowledgeable farmland real estate broker will know what animals can be found on available properties.
