Re: know anything about farming large # of acres for profit?
One more thing to consider:
Corporate farming has taken over & replaced the family farm in many locations. Unless your family = one of the big guys you don't have a chance. In most locations prime for crop farming there is no such thing as starting a family crop farming operation unless you can afford & are only seeking an $$$$$$ hobby. If you don't become one of the big guys before corporate farming moves into your neighborhood you are truly toast overnight.
Knowledgeable farmers strongly discourage their children from farming.
