You don't have to leave. Simply buy a small farm (using a 2.5% FHA farmers loan backed by the US government) with no intention of running it. Rent 1/2 of it to another farmer for cash rent. Set aside the other 1/2 in a government program designed to cut ag. production called CRP. CRP will pay almost as much as the cash rent but not the same. At the end of the year, you depreciate leading to a loss since you only rent 1/2 out and have the other 1/2 in CRP. You can "hide" your down payment with this loss, get a tax break and enjoy federal CRP money as bonus. The cheap 2.5% government loan for farmers is easily overcome. I know people who have bought horse barns and use similar tactics. The government is giving you every advanatage to take taxpayer money. Even Jon Bon Jovi does it.
