Farmland seeing record high prices in California
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Ag officials say the price for an acre of farmland has reached as a high as $14-thousand in some places.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the average acre of land was valued at $7,200 last year. That's a record high for California and more than the previous record set in 2011.
Ag officials say a huge boom in the nut market is driving up prices for ag land. Growing demand in China for California-grown products is also expected to continue driving up the price of farmland.
