How Much Does a Farm Cost in Ontario?
Running a farm is no walk in the park. It takes extensive planning and research. When it comes to costs, there are many short-term and long-term factors to consider, such as:
- Rations management when prices are volatile
- Machinery maintenance and rental fees
- Crop and livestock management and maintenance
When buying a farm, you need to develop a long-term, holistic approach to sustainability because consumers are more aware than ever of how their food is processed. Sustainability in agriculture is not only desired on an Ontario farm estate; it’s a worldwide demand, and it can be adapted to each region. However, there are several concepts that don’t change:
- Economic profitability
- Environmental stewardship
- Social responsibility
Ontario farms for sale may need a lot of work to reverse damage, so you can improve the quality of a cash crop, for instance. A farm’s economic profitability takes time. Patience is essential in this industry.
Additionally, your workers should be treated fairly, and you will need to have a firm presence in the community to support other local businesses. A farm costs more than just money; it requires a large investment of time and energy.
Consider the Price Tag
Besides location, one of the most important factors to consider when looking at farms in Ontario for sale is price. The price of a farm estate depends upon a number of factors, but an important point to remember is that the price of farmland has more than doubled over the last ten years in Canada. Based on this trend, farmland would appear to be a good investment, whether the lot you are interested in is located in the west of the country or right here at home in Ontario. The cost per acre will always vary based on various conditions, but based on data from Statistics Canada, the cost for a farm in Ontario is approximately $2.6 million in 2019. According to Food Secure Canada, it is expected that up to 50% of all farmland in Canada is going to change hands over the next ten years. This market will no doubt continue to heat up as that process continues.
