YAKIMA — The value of farmland continues to rise in Washington, largely because farm products are producing big sales numbers.

In Yakima County, the average sale price per acre for irrigated, high-quality, vacant farmland rose 37 percent to an estimated $5,302 between 2011 and 2014.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reports that existing farms push the price even higher. Statewide, the average price of farmland already cropped went up about 6 percent from $8,500 to $9,000 an acre between 2012 and 2013.
