What asset has appreciated more than any asset since the year 2000? Answer: Farmland. 1,200%

Food inflation is currently at 30% a year, and the fast-eroding value of the dollar is causing food prices to appear even higher in contrast to a weakening currency. As the dollar drops in value due to runaway money printing at the Federal Reserve, the cost to import foods from other nations looks to double in just the next two years — and possibly every two years thereafter.

Ceres Partners, which invests in farmland, has produced astonishing 16% annual returns since its launch in 2008. And this is during a depressed economy when most other industries are showing losses.

Gold has had higher annual appreciation than that on average. Even though 2012 is not that high for gold, yet, I suspect it will be.

Of course that is relative to location, but even in the Texas Panhandle, Ranch land is up over 600% since 2000...

I would say commodities are a good bet, assuming you can grow them or hold them in your possession over the next few years...

People have to eat!

Yes exactly. I was going to post something in regards to this earlier. Indiana is having a terrible drought and the cost of food is going to start increasing again. Namely anything with corn, soy and beef. Also veggies but not as bad as the others I mentioned. Invest in it if you can. You will not go wrong.

When I bought our acreage back in 1985 Farm ground was around $700 per acre. Now it is going at $10,000 and up. Reminds me of the '70s when every farmer went all in on hog production and the bottom fell out breaking pretty much all of them.

Around here (Iowa) the banks will only lend $5000 per acre, and the buyer needs to come up with the rest. Tells me the banks have no confidence in these prices.

Sweet.

Precious Metal coins have their place though, as I can't put farmland in my pocket or flip it on ebay while I'm half asleep.

I say this owning farmland =)

I do believe it though, I talked with a farmer last year who was telling me about the offer he got for his land "He was crazy in the head" is what the farmer said, he didn't think it was worth that much. He wouldn't sell though because he had lived there for last 20 years and wasn't about to move.
