We have been having a great summer so far this year, at least in my opinion. I grew up in a small town in Indiana, that was surrounded by farms. Minneapolis is very similar as you can drive just a half hour out of the city and be in farm country. We have some of the most beautiful scenery with rolling hills and acres of corn fields, reminding me of southern Indiana. If you want real estate with 2 or more acres, you have to travel to the far suburbs to find a great piece of land. Seeing the profit to be made, many local farmers are selling off their tracts of real estate to developers.
