I’d like to here where farmers think the ideal place to farm in the United States is?
The i states or southern or East or west or what? I think the best would be Iowa or Illinois.. I currently farm in the Texas Panhandle.. I enjoy it but we running out of water.. and do not get enough rain for sustainable Dryland farming.. Irrigation can take a lot of time it’s bittersweet lol.. right when we want to go on a family outing it breaks down!! Happens over and over.. but I have the ability to water up crops and put fertilizer through very easily.. so just curious what you alls opinion would be on that? 😊

Anywhere that I could get access to a market other than wheat, beans, and corn would be ideal IMO

I can tell you that Michigan sucks to farm in. High rents and not the yields like the i states to support them
