New idea for cheap farm land to lease?
Hello all, I run a small nursery and do market farming on a small scale although I have no other jobs not related to plants somehow. My some of market garden is under the power right of way and that got me thinking we have lots of large vacant lots near me with large power right of ways that they cannot build any thing on or do much with. having a garden on there is something that you can do and the power company actually likes because they don't have to maintain it. The right of ways are 100-150 ft wide from the road and as long as I want. But Here in florida the land is owned by the owner not the power company like it is in some states. I have a few questions though. Has any one done this before? Would it be best to contact the owner and get permission to plant or the power company? What would be a reasonable offer for leasing it. Or is this whole idea not good one?
