Depending on location and size of this land I would grow a orchard of various tree's.

I am looking at utilizing a piece of land like the idle game. Where I would leave it there and keep generating profit. For instance, place a few vending machines on the land, or from what I've found on Google, rent it to power company for solar energy. Thereby, without doing anything, get you cash rolling in. The key is to buy a large piece of land for a cheap price at place like Texas (no offense).

I think that unfortunately there really aren't very many ways to use the land such that you don't have ANY maintenance. For instance, solar panels are great, but they break (animals chew the wiring, accidentally break connections, etc), and if you purchased the land in Texas, the cost to deliver the energy you made becomes more and more expensive the farther you are from civilization, but land is cheaper when farther from people, so you have a bit of a trade off going on. Vending machines, etc. only work in town, where land is more expensive, and also require maintenance. You could purchase land with oil or mineral rights, and then contract out the mining of said minerals/oil, but once again, most people are aware of such things on their land, so the price goes up. The one thing I could think of that would require minimal labor (except once a year) is maintaining a bunch of maple trees in Canada, and harvesting maple syrup once a year.......

Mining was mentioned in my Google searches, but I am looking for more of a perpetual slow income. Right if you do lease the land to the power company they should be taking care of the maintenance for you, but the contract would probably last for 20 years. I was intrigued by the idea of a mail delivery place like ZenMarket or auto shopping center. Add in the auto driving truck you could have a whole delivery system set up. Auto ice cream truck, auto taco truck.

Sell it for a tidy sum to someone who might do something creative with it (or might not, what do I care).

Yes, I know you are hyped lol , I'm just afraid about all the green tree and grass that would be going away. Maybe some way of generating oxygen on the land and get paid for it?

P.S Or sushi truck

A Christmas tree farm then? (like one of those chose and cut places where the people go pick out their own tree)

Definitely a private munitions testing range with an on site workshop. A little slice of heaven for me to ply the craft in without pissing off the fire department.

Good to know someone who actually got the land lol. Consult with your dad first. Then test the water before going full diving.

i know my dad mentioned considering start up a orchard though his plan is so he can raise the price of the land when he sells it though i haven't mentioned that i do have some interest in continuing it just im not sure if thats what i actually want to do or not which is the thing thats really frustrating me most for awhile now i want to do something but i don't know what
