The rapid run-up in farmland values1 and the continued expansion of farm size have led some of the larger operations to begin to raise the question of whether the time may be coming to consider soliciting outside equity capital. Some see that as assuring a more stable capital base but others are reluctant to move in that direction because of possible loss of control of the operation over time. This article discusses some of the more likely routes to follow if the interest has matured to the point of wanting to consider some options.
