Well, presumably I rent it to another farmer

If you need the rent money, you should find out if there is indeed farmers renting land in your area.

In Colorado, my dad rents his field to the people who run a successful corner vegetable stand. However, the next generation is not interested in carrying on the business. When that happens, there will be no demand for rental land. The area is built up and the farmers are few and getting fewer.

In western Minnesota, my BIL says there is no one to rent to. Everyone who wants to farm already have their own land and lots of land is going fallow as farmers get old and can't do as much as they used to.
