If you have land, or you are willing to invest in a parcel, you can use it to your advantage when it comes to securing your financial future.

There are so many smart ways that you can leverage your land to make money, build a business and invest in your future, that it is something you should definitely consider if you are in a position to do so.

With that in mind, here are some of the smartest ways to earn a living with your land:

Host a Festival

If you have a sizeable parcel of land, something that you might consider doing is running your own festival. Book acts, encourage local businesses to set up stalls, and charge an admission fee. Your festival is likely to be small in the first years, but if you can keep building upon it and if you work hard to book decent acts, then who knows what might be possible in the future?

Look after pets

Creating your own dog kennels or cattery is something else you might want to consider if you want to make a living from your land. Yes, you will need to provide care for the animals too, but if you love pets, you love walking and caring for them, and you want to put your land to good use, you could do a lot worse than to take in pets while their owners are way,

Grow organic veggies

If you have farm land, then you have the ability to start your own agricultural business. You don’t have to go all out as a farmer, but you can definitely make a living by growing organic fruits, veggies, and even flowers for sale at farmer’s markets and high-end grocery stores. Even as a side-line, you can make a pretty decent income doing this, which is why investment in farm land is always worthwhile.

Rent it out for photoshoots and movies

So many magazines, book publishers, and movie studios need land to film their projects on, so if you have a parade of land that you think looks good, or which is unusual or interesting in some way, it is definitely worth registering your interest in hosting such shoots because you can make thousands of dollars per day doing so at the highest end, and hundreds at the lower side for the scale, and it’s not just land, people are always looking for the right homes to shoot in too!

Grow Christmas trees or a pumpkin patch

If you’re looking for a seasonal way to use your land that could make you a lot of money, then growing pumpkins for Halloween or trees for Christmas can be really lucrative, and although you will need to be out there tending to your crops regularly, it can be a very nice, fun way of earning a living too.

When you have land, as you can see, you can make a living, so instead of letting your land lie bare, why not do something truly special with it today?
