Getting Started With a Specialty Farm
Specialty crops can help to bring in higher prices because they are not widely grown in a particular region. However, developing a crop plan, buying land and handling all aspects of planting and harvesting for your specialty farm requires that you work with local experts. Here some tips for starting your specialty farm in North Carolina.
Specialty Crops Grown in North Carolina
The idea of specialty farming in North Carolina originally began as a method of weaning farmers off field crops (primarily tobacco, soybeans and maize) in order create regional demand for other crops. While there are some large operations, the majority of specialty farms on North Carolina rural land are small-scale farms. Today, high-value, specialty crops that are grown in North Carolina include:
- seedless watermelons
Many growers opt to grow multiple specialty crops on a single farm in order to increase revenues. Finding land with the right soil quality and weather conditions is the first step to planning your specialty farm.
Selecting Land for Your Specialty Farm
Specialty crop farms in North Carolina can be subject to varying levels of risk depending on the region in which the farm is located. Some areas in North Carolina are prone to high natural disaster risks while others feature distinct weather patterns that can put farms at risk for experiencing high winds, excessive heat, freezing temperatures and heavy rain.
A map created by researchers at Rural Advancement Foundation International-USA indicates where specialty farms are located in North Carolina and where disaster declarations were made from the years 2008 through 2012 in order to help farmers assess the risks. As a result, if you want to choose the best place to buy land for your specialty farm in North Carolina, you should make sure that you opt for a region that will offer the potential risk and return levels that you feel comfortable with.

7 Tips to Consider Before You Set Your Price
If you’re planning to sell your farm, ranch, or other luxury real estate, setting the price is one of the most important parts of the process. Setting it too high will result in few interested buyers and a lengthy selling process, setting it too low may mean that you take a loss. Contact Gardner Reynolds today for a CMA on your property at 919-749-3177.
Before locking in a price for your ranch, farm, or other land listing, consider these factors to make sure that your sale has a positive return on investment:
- Determine the current land and farm market prices and reconcile those with your need to sell. If you’re looking for a quick sale, you may need to list your price below market rates.
- If your property needs upkeep, estimate the money that you will have to spend to make it presentable. Then, determine whether it’s worth it to you to do this work before selling it, or whether you are willing to reduce the price of your farm or land listing by this much.
- Are there any valuable items on your property that you will include in the sale? If so, determine and appraise their value and include these in your asking price. Be sure to also keep this information handy to explain to potential buyers.
- Get inspection reports ready. Remember to factor in the fees for obtaining these when setting the price at which you will sell your farm or ranch.
- Will you sell your property through a real estate broker? Contact us for a list on why to use a real estate broker that specializes in farms and land.
- Consider what materials might help you sell your farm, ranch, or land listing and what the cost of these will be. Whether you are selling your property yourself or working through a real estate broker, a small investment in professional marketing presentation can pay off in spades.
- Consider the tax implications of your selling price. Consult your tax professional before making any moves.
Keep these tips in mind to help you make an informed decision when setting the asking price for your farm, ranch, or land listing. © Legacy Farms and Ranches of North Carolina. Contact us today 919-844-9492.
