Whether you bought the land as an investment or inherited some landed properties, there is no reason to leave it just lying there doing nothing; you can start making money from your land temporarily even if you have not yet figured out what you really want to do with it. Here are some lucrative business ideas that you can use to make money from your land on a temporary or permanent basis.

Farming

There are many different types of farming you can do depending on the type of land you have, but whichever one you do, farming is a very lucrative business.
