Well I suppose that all depends on which 100 acres it is.

I'd keep 10 acres for my future home, and sell the rest. Is this lake-front property?

Location ... Location ... Location

 

If it's where I live now...the possibilities are endless. If it were in Arizona or Nevada; not a whole heck of a lot. Let's assume it's where I live, I'd probably sell most of it off (so I don't have to worry about what's going on in the back-40 - people growing pot on the land). I'd use the money from the sale to build the estate of my dreams (keeping a couple/few acres for myself). I looks like I could get about $2.5 for about 100 acres ... http://www.landwatch...le/pid/25037646

I do that on a much smaller scale, 1000 vines, Bordeaux grape.

Its a lot more work than people imagine, depending on location.

No. I have no desire to produce on a scale required to do that.

I sell to a winery in the area.

Growing grapes is extremely labor intensive.

What would you do with it?

what do you do with it now? 

 

Is the land productive for you or more of a burden?

 

Is it cleared land or lots of strong tall trees?    You could do Zip Lines.

 

Creeks or ponds?  Rural Camping and or hiking.  Work with kids groups or Scouts.

Hops and Barley fields for all the craft brewers out there. A buddy of mine does international shipping, his highest priced commodity lately is Hops and grains for brewing coming from Germany / Bavarian regions. Very expensive product.

In that case, Sell!!! I would pull 5-10 million easy even for undeveloped land. Developed lots near me are going for 100K for 1/3 acre.
