This is a thread for usual, unusual, rare, and out of the box ways to acquire land. The main criteria is that the ideas must lead to land ownership, even if it involves leasing for a few years. In this case brainstorming means no idea is too crazy unless you're just being goofy.
Here goes:

Work a regular job and save aggressively
Start your dream business/job and save aggressively
Do anything that earns money and save
Partner with like minded folks and pool resources
Partner a person either with land or savings and:
  • rent to own
  • steward their property in exchange for a plot
  • pay them with a fair supply of food for a plot
  • build an eco home for them in exchange
  • some other work trade for a plot


  • Owner financed
    Trade vehicle for plot
    Sell vehicle and buy land
    Rent land for farming operation and buy land with earnings
    Inherit
    Caretake and inherit
    Partner with friends for any of the above
    On a rented farm, ask loyal patrons to finance buying farm

    Some of these could be added together.

    You could build skills and then someone may give you their land since you appear to be a go getter who will take good care of the place - PEP

    Watch for county/state sales on properties delinquent on their taxes

    Go to a place that's cheaper (40 acres on a big lake for $20K in the UP of Michigan
