With that in mind, here are some articles to help you figure out how much to pay and how to create a relationship with your landlord that will create success.
First, some resources for pricing.
Next, some thoughts on how to work well with land owners.
Greg Judy’s success is due in large part to his ability to expand his operation on leased land and especially to his ability to create good, long-lasting relationships. He shares his secrets here. He goes into even more detail in his book “How to Think Like a Grazier.”
Ben Waterman’s article reinforces Greg’s thoughts on good relationships, plus it give you examples of a letter you can use to contact a potential landowner, provides a little “legalese” language you can use, in a lease agreement AND adds a link to an article to help you put together leases you and the landowner can relate to.

I hope these articles and resources help you get where you’re going!
