    You can lease it out during hunting season. You could also raise livestock, there is a shortage in milk around my area so you can pocket off of the demand and lack of supply.

    yea, lease it out, but not just for hunting, basically it can be anything

    $10k is not that much money and 1 acre land is not that much either to make investments

    you won't become a farmer from one day to another from reading books and you'll burn that $10k faster IRL than you'd do with Google Adwords :)

    your neighbors may already do something with their land, they may already have machines or somebody must have in the area, contact them and try to lease it out to them, just leave it to the pros :)

    look into aquaponics, you can get a commercial setup for under $10k and 1 acre is more than enough to get started

    Put your 10k towards an anaerobic digestor. Create power. Profit.

    Unless you plan to make a secret sever base for storing information, I think you'd get much better advice at some agricultural forum..

    You realize the dollar is used in several countries including Australia, Belize, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore, and Taiwan? If someone puts a dollar sign, it doesn't quite mean that they're American.
