Farmland is a unique and irreplaceable asset. Even if the market goes down, even if money in investment portfolios decreases, land does not disappear. Transactions involving farmland should not be taken lightly. If you are thinking about buying, selling, or investing in improvements for your farmland, talk with an attorney who has in-depth knowledge of agricultural law.
