We present you with the list of the best cash crops with the highest profit per acre. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it giving you some advice in case you are planning to grow crops. As for me, I have a little farm with huge shepherd dogs, hunter dogs, cats, chickens, ducklings, a mini cow and some rabbits. I sell vegetables, fruit, eggs, milk, cheese and some meat sometimes. I do farming beacuse I want to know what I eat. As the saying tells us: you are what you eat. I firmly believe it’s worth investing a little farm, since people in the city have realized products coming from farms directly are much better and healthier. I am planning to grow mushrooms either. Not only because I love cooking and eating them, but yes, they are very profitable. You can buy pre-grown mushroom sacks and just you put them into the cellar, and violiá! you can harvest! Of course not every mushroom is so easy to grow, but what is true, it is worth considering it.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the best cash crops with the highest profit per acre from their list.
The first one is Lavender. Lavender is a truly a sweet smell of success. This fragrant Mediterranean plant requires the right climate to thrive (mild winters and sunny summers) but it is grown in various states across the US. According to lavender lovers, Everything Lavender, states with the largest number of lavender farms are California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado and Texas. If you add some extra efforts, you can turn beautiful lavender flowers into lavender bags, aromatherapy oil, lavender soap and many other beauty products. Willows are the second in the row now on our short list. Willow one of the best cash crops with the highest profit per acre, can find its place on the market in many forms. It has a high bio mass potential because it yields more biomass per acre than any other hardwood and it can be used for basketry and furniture as well. Willow needs significantly fewer pesticides than other crops and while it thrives in deep soil rich with water, it is also very resistant to other conditions as well. At last, but not least let’s check out Herbs. Growing various herbs and plants we use for spices can be very profitable, which is why they are on the best cash crops with the highest profit per acre list. We will give you the example of the culinary classic, basil. Basil is pretty easy to grow but it is very sensitive to cold weather.
