Let's Get a Farm!

Many of you know my somewhat unhealthy obsession with wanting to have a farm. I think it’s a mix of growing up visiting my Grandfather’s California farm and vegetable gardening. Regardless, It might be time to take that more seriously as an occupation. Jim Rogers, who started the Quantum Fund with George Soros, was recently interviewed in Business Week and said:

I really think agriculture is going to be the best place to be. Agriculture’s been a horrible business for 30 years. For decades the money shufflers, the paper shufflers, have been the captains of the universe. That is now changing. The people who produce real things [will be on top]. You’re going to see stockbrokers driving taxis. The smart ones will learn to drive tractors, because they’ll be working for the farmers. It’s going to be the 29-year-old farmers who have the Lamborghinis. So you should find yourself a nice farmer and hook up with him or her, because that’s where the money’s going to be in the next couple of decades.

Now if I only had 7 figures to buy the acreage…

    I will definitely go revsiit all these blogs and make more of an effort to get to know the ones I don't know already. And I hope to continue to bring some more into the fold. There's always room for more in our crazy little family', right?Due to my sidebar widths, I can't put all these images up. But I will definitely link to them if WP doesn't resize them for me Devilish Southern Belleb4s last blog ..
