Farming is one of the most traditional professions out there. It’s been around forever and it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, much of this nation is dedicated to farming. If you’re thinking of starting your own farm, here are three states to consider moving to in order to do well.

Idaho

One of the most prosperous states for farming is Idaho. There are many different crops grown in Idaho, many of which are shipped nationally and even worldwide. Among these crops are, of course, potatoes, barely, hay, wheat, sugar beets, mint, fruit, onions, and seed. With so many crops to choose from, you’ll likely find one you enjoy. Idaho is known for its quality crops and the flourishing agriculture. Overall, farming in this state is very profitable and rooted in tradition. You’re almost guaranteed to do well or yourself. If you’re looking for a reliable place to start then look no further than Idaho.

Iowa

If your priority is finding a state that is primarily focused on agriculture, then Iowa is the place to start. The state has dedicated 92 percent of its land to agriculture. In fact, it leads the nation in the percentage of land dedicated to agriculture as well as in the export of its main crops. Corn and soybeans are among the more common crops grown in Iowa. Joining the many farmers who produce these crops is a reliable choice as these crops will likely always be necessary and wanted in the nation. The soil in Iowa is also very rich and you can depend on regular rainfall. Farming in Iowa is a wise and reliable choice.

Nebraska

Nebraska is an excellent place for new farmers to start. This is primarily due to the programs in place that support new farmers. For example, there’s the Nebraska Beginning Farmer Tax Credit Program. This program offers farmers a 3-year lease and a $500 tax credit reimbursement. Farmers also receive a tax break if they lease portions of their land to new farmers. Overall, the community has a very positive attitude towards new farmers. You can also depend on many other wonderful resources to direct you to land, training, and financial assistance.

There is a vast amount of variety in this nation when it comes to farming. Finding the right place for your farm depends on your wants and needs. Are you interested in a certain crop? Do you care more about dependability and affordability? Whatever your priority is, there’s a spot for you.
