So you’ve bought a piece of wild land. Beautiful, raw land the way nature intended. Now what? Sure, you can dig a well, put in a septic, a road, a driveway, and build the house of your dreams in the seclusion of nature. And many of our customers do just that. But we’re here to tell you about the more creative possibilities you can explore. Some even make you money. So check out LandCentral’s 5 Unique Ways to Use Your Wild Land:

#1. Outdoor Storage

Depending on the location of your wild land, offering it up as storage for others is a great way to make passive income. And when we say storage, we’re talking the big things: boats, trailers, semis. You know, all the big rigs people don’t have room to store at their own residence. Just put in a security gate and you’ve got yourself a great use for your large lot.

#2. Beekeeping

It’s no secret the bees are in crisis mode. So this use for your wild land is ideal for the bees and the future of our planet. Since most of your land will be covered in wildflowers and other vegetation and far enough away from human activity, it can be an ideal place for beekeeping. You can even sell the honey if you’re so inclined.

#3. Dirt Bike or 4-Wheeler Course

Now this one’s just fun. But a large amount of land can go a long way when you bring the toys. Carve out a fun course over 10 to 20 acres of wild land, and you’ve got a whole day of adventure. From dirt bikes and 4-wheelers to razors and any other land toy, you’ll be the popular friend in the group with your very own course.

#4. Off Grid Airbnb

Maybe you don’t want to build your forever home, but you do want to build an off-grid homestead for others to enjoy. This is a great way to earn passive income and have a home away from home when you need to escape the hustle and bustle. Offer it up as a writer’s retreat, a hunter’s cabin, or a honeymoon getaway. The sky’s the limit with an off-grid cabin.

#5. Start an Animal Sanctuary

This may seem a little out there, but using a large plot of wild land to create an animal sanctuary is a common practice across the US. From saving injured birds to offering a safe haven for abandoned exotic animals, setting up an animal sanctuary is a great way to not only save a life, but make a living. No, you don’t have to be the next Tiger King to make it happen. All you need is a large amount of wild land away from urban areas and a vision.
