Unfortunately your competitors are always looking for 50-100 more to rent too. Your probably going to have to buy some. Anyone in your immediate/extended family involved in farming? keep being patient and Keep good relationships with your neighbors and financially ready for the next opportunity. That opportunity may find you.
