What is California farmland worth? Field crop acreage in the Imperial Valley might bring as little as $700 an acre for poor-quality soil, but land good for produce is averaging $2,600 an acre on the heels of last winter's high-priced lettuce market. Rangeland in the southern San Joaquin Valley can be bought for $100 to $300 an acre, but orange groves sell from $6,000 to $9,000 an acre, depending on such factors as production history, potential and frost-protection requirements.
