A recent FBN® poll indicates that 38% of farmers are looking to buy farmland in the next year, with only 2% looking to sell. 

The poll, conducted via text message to FBN members on February 9, asked respondents, “In the next year, are you trying to buy farmland?” Available responses included: 

  • A: Yes

  • B: No, prices are too high

  • C: No, interest rates are too high

  • D: No, I'm selling

  • E: No, I’m not expanding

Farmer Feedback
