What to do with small, unused land? My ideas are too bizarre.

    If you have a 300 sqm land in the middle of nowhere (Actually located along the road in a rural community where rich folks live far away from each other), what would you do?

    I would:
    -make a billboard (God knows how it'll work out)
    -make it a parking lot with cube-like fence with locked gate for each car for security purposes (I actually thought of this crazy idea myself thank you thank you)
    -hire some peeps and do car wash (God knows how it'll work out #2)
    -not build a poultry farm (Too complicated)
    -ask farm people to rent the land (God knows how it'll work out #3)
    -make a playground for pets (Probably just fence the whole land and let their pets roam around wild, young and free)

    You see, I like to have a passive income from this small land. It's nice to breathe more air and earn on the side. What would you do?

    30 SQ Mi you mean or SQ M? 30 Square Meters is not a lot of land... Now Square Miles, that is a different story.
    Depending how far off the grid it is, you could set it up as a self storage facility, Solar Panels like danigp6 states is a good one as well. Perhaps even Wind Turbines?
    You could also set it up as a Warehouse for "Pods" where you send a 10' Container to peoples houses and they fill 'em up and you then store them in the warehouse for $xxx a month. There are many things you could do with 30 Square Miles. Perhaps Zone it Industrial and build a Facility on it and try to lease it to an industrial fabricator or something as well.

    That's a cool one.

    I'm not familiar with the solar panels business but if ever I want to take this road, do we just ask electricity companies if they want to rent our land?

    Haha sorry for the confusion man. I meant 300 square meters. 300 SQUARE MILES is indeed a different story. :D

    You really have some awesome ideas. You're another one to suggest a self-storage facility. It must be a booming bznz.

    I hope fellow small land owners take note of this thread.

    It's legal when you sell catnip instead of weed but pretend it's weed anyway. (It'd be funny when customers leave positive feedbacks like "got high after 2 secs you rock man xoxox)

    Solar power is not worth going into. For a household to justify them, it takes around 30 years to pay off. You'd be looking at $50k+ in solar panels and no return for a long time.

    Self-storage is not totally passive either. You generally need people around to help with customer problems if you're a larger lot. There is profit to be made from it though with relatively little work. Scope your area out for other self storage places and see if its over saturated or not.

    Depending on what the lot is zoned for (commercial, residential) you can rent the land out. Someone may come along and put a trailer (single/double) to live in. That's an easy $700/month and almost no investment (you need to get water, electricity, sewage and gas setup.)
    The other possible thing to do with even more income is to setup a cell tower. There are several potential problems with this depending on where you live though. If you're within a certain range of special airports that have a certain type of radar then you need to get approval from them. You may also have to deal with the home owners association. Then there's licensing. The tower costs. Engineering costs... It can be offset though because you can easily sell spots for several thousand a month depending on the height and strength of the tower.

    I would like to see you practice drifting on 10x30m (no hate!). How fast can a car get on 30m, if it has to be stopped or turned around also?

    why keep guessing?
    You said the land is located along a road, find out where do most people using this road hangout.
    Write down your ideas on a survey and ask those people to arrange the ideas from most needed to least needed.
    Now you get yourself a nice idea of what could be working
