Warren County Farm Rental Rates

Estimating average farm rental rates in Warren County is a challenging proposition due to the changing nature of agriculture in the county. Parcel sizes in Warren County are smaller than those in the surrounding counties and the challenge of moving large farm equipment around the county has never been more difficult. Compounding the problem of estimating farm rental rates in the county is the reluctance of many landowners and farmers to share their own rental agreements with others. However, the National Agricultural Statistics Service has released a county-by-county cash rental average which is reported in the chart below:
