Hey All, I'm new here, but for my contribution of ideas. What I did in September, 2007 was purchase a 39 acre Finca in Mendoza Argentina. I have a 10 acre plum orchard, 5 acres of grapes, 14 acres alfalfa, a house with plumbing, no electric yet but cost to install is around $2500. Not bad considering cost of living in the USA now. I have around 11 acres not in production. When all is done should be around $40,000 net per year. Land is so cheap there! Cost of my property in beautiful Mendoza??? $75,900!!! Peanuts!
