    Here we go folks .........

    .......I live in Maryland and our state average
    is $65 acre but our fields are small compared to
    other places. Most guys around here are working angles
    to get help. My neighbor has 142 acres and gets
    payments from the state of $40,000 a year to be in the
    Farm Preservation program. I just got my info packet
    from the Nature Conservancy program. If I get approved
    I'll get $200 month in property tax relief. A guy down
    the road is working 1800 acres, but is a Massey
    dealer, fertilizer dealer,seed dealer and lawn and garden
    equip dealer. We don't have very many "pure farmers" our John Deere buyers are mostly in
    compact/utility tractors and riding lawn mowers......
