Eight Global Trends to Watch that Will Impact the Land Market – Week 8

Urban Farming:

The demand for fresh food from a known source is rippling through America. One of the results is a trend called Urban Farming. Interestingly, a growing number of the farmers are:

  • Young women;
  • Working one to two acres;
  • Using techniques that maximize production on small coverage;
  • Generating significant income.

This trend will continue because it is driven by consumer’s concerns about the quality of their food. The production of food is a driver of crop land values.
