United Kingdom land prices Since 2000 while United Kingdom land prices have risen, ‘driven sharply by a series of tax advantages for landowners which have nothing to do with farm profitability, the value of their own assets (farm machinery, livestock and growing crops) has either frozen or fallen over the same period…The inflated land value driven by tax breaks bears no relation to the farming profit to be earned from the land,’ as reported by The Agri Brigade, Private Eye No. 1435 13-26 Jan 2017, p15.
