Most Expensive Specialty Crops in the World

Growing fruits and vegetables in the home garden is becoming an increasingly popular secondary income source for many people, but what are the most expensive specialty crops in the world and how much profit can they bring a small farmer? While grains and even pricey vegetables like asparagus or cherry tomatoes can boost your regular salary by investing little time and money, the reality is that the market is full of home-grown, organic crop suppliers. Specialty crops, on the other hand, can reap up to $60,000 per acre and require the same caretaking as common vegetables.

In a previous article we talked about the 10 most common genetically modified foods and how they’re affecting human health. Due to this, the organic food market is growing significantly, but the biggest earnings remain on a different spectrum. Take a look at our list of the most expensive specialty crops in the worlds and how much you can really earn by selling them.

7. Lavender

Estimated price per pound: $18

Lavender is a particularly profitable crop for small farmers, because it’s easy to tend and offers multiple sale outlets. You can sell the fresh flowers to businesses that manufacture lavender oil, or dry the buds and sell them to florists. As this plant is used for aromatherapy and skin care products, amongst others, it’s always in high demand.
