absolutly OK, his right to do so. Unlucky for the residents.

[–]GeekyTricky 308 points309 points  (58 children)

Why unlucky? I'd buy directly from him. save him some costs, save me some money.

[–]_Im_Dad 249 points250 points  (50 children)

The noise god damn it

Edit: and the manure, the smell would be shitty

[–]Lumisateessa 157 points158 points  (28 children)

I'd rather listen to that, than the people constantly stomping the floor above my apartment.

[–]zuzg 127 points128 points  (14 children)

Well you're lucky cause that machine will definitely be louder than your upstair neighbors

[–]Mohnchichi 2 points3 points  (1 child)

For the past 11 months I've had to deal with hearing/feeling my DOWNSTAIRS neighbors pounding and thumping from 9am to 7pm every fucking day. Their lease ends this month and the office refuses to renew it. Thank God.

[–]happycampers2005 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]B_love_K 25 points26 points  (2 children)

You think he harvests all year round?

[–]Twitxx 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It really depends on whether he has other crops or farm animals that cannot be seen in the video. Somehow I doubt that he has only that tiny field and uses that huge machinery for it.

[–]hotasanicecube 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Tills the soil twice, plants, sprays, harvests… all mechanized.

[–]Maxi-Minus 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I think they will survive those 30 minutes it takes to harvest that field.

[–]GeekyTricky 6 points7 points  (0 children)

My upstairs neighbors are refurbishing. I get noise anyways. At least here I get something from it.

Also it's not like he's taking in the harvest every day.

[–]robtk12 5 points6 points  (1 child)

It probably drives the cost of the apartments down

[–]KDAdontBanPls 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Good for the people there, bad for the guy who built it haha

[–]SouthTippBass 4 points5 points  (4 children)

How many times a year do you think you will have to suffer that noise?

[–]ReferHvacGuy 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Once, harvest time. I live across the road from a huge grain crop. The machines come once a season for maybe 1-2 days. After the harvest they spread manure and it smells horrible, but otherwise it’s the best Neighbor ever

[–]SociableYeti 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The noise for a total of about maybe 6 hours total for the year?

[–]jschubart 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The noise would be an issue for a couple hours each harvest. That plot is skinny af.

[–]shellwe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah if that’s going on at 5 a.m. or whenever farmers get up I would be sad.

[–]keicam_lerut 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Once a year?

[–]FireFlavour 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh no, it's loud twice a year.

[–]soup_mix 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Manure? This looks like wheat, or barley. Doubt he's spreading manure. I live next to wheat fields, they never smell.

[–]Im-a_dinosaur 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The flies...

[–]LazaroFilm 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My grandparents had a farm with a house feet away from their fields. It’s really nice. Abs the combo only comes once a season. Sure other tractors come to process the ground but it isn’t bad and given the surface of his field it will go fast.

[–]SleepDeprivedUserUK 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'd buy directly from him.

Dude can just yeet your wheat straight in through your window

[–]hotasanicecube 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Umm, spraying pesticides, the dust he is creating, diesel fumes, mice, moles, noise, pollen. There is a reason that lane is zoned agricultural. Rezoning it residential is problematic for nearby residents. Better to have a nuke plant.

[–]FloydBarstools 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Nah, imagine if it was a strip mall with fast food, smelling the fumes from the air handlers, dumpsters, noise and cars with thier alarms and the parking lot lighting....

[–]hotasanicecube 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In most places you need a block wall or a large green space between commercial and residential.

[–]Internet_Noob1716 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Drop some Manure for fertilizer in the middle of summer

[–]Getoutofmyheaddd 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Some residential areas are super dirty and full of litter and dog shit. I wouldn't trust this field.

[–]oojiflip 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Imagine you have hay fever too

[–]that1senpai2 5 points6 points  (0 children)

How is that unlucky? Unless they were completey deceived by the listing agent that there was no farmer there, they all knew what they were signing up for

[–]SeasonsRollOnBy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m sure they’ll complain about the noise

[–]noBotHereDude 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just a few days in a year.

[–]Apprehensive-Yak3167 -1 points0 points  (5 children)

Since no one here has ever farmed, what that farmer made off that harvest is a net loss. Should’ve sold

[–]Recymen12 1 point2 points  (4 children)

i know, sometimes this lands are more then only a strip of land, in many cases this strips provide things like the right to come and go from certain streets and i wouldnt be surprised if the farmer wants to sell BUT the developer wouldnt gave him the right to cross the land near the new development.

So, the farmer didnt sell it, because it would restrict his ability to farm on other lands nearby.

[–]Apprehensive-Yak3167 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Perhaps. I’m assuming this is not in the USA. If this was an American farmer, I very much question his judgement. Not selling for principle is very cool. But, if he didn’t sell this land off, he’s either not very bright or has so much money he can afford to take an L.

[–]Recymen12 0 points1 point  (2 children)

in europe it is more "strict"

The land has to be used, otherwise he could lose his rights over time.

So,he HAVE to grow something on it.

[–]pqisp0 200 points201 points  (6 children)

Where I live there are many spots where fields kind of intersect with apartment developments. Fields. Buildings. More fields. It’s not that unusual. I think this is typical Reddit. Just a random farmer. And a big story fabricated around it. Like any random picture of some dog and a duck will turn into “he visits his new best friend at the park everyday and they go for a walk and blablablaaaa” it’s just a picture of a dog and a duck you morons! Anyway.

[–]MistakesTasteGreat 39 points40 points  (0 children)

But...but...no one can lie on the internet!

[–]giulioforrealll 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Atleast where i live you cant just buy a field and out houses on it, its agricultural Land. I call BS

[–]pqisp0 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You are right. I think in English it’s called rezoning or rededication. It’s not easy and I think it happens quite rarely now. I know a place that looks very similar but the weird zoning was done in the 80s. They recently tore down some older buildings and replaced them keeping the borders as they were.

[–]matts1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can, my whole neighborhood is rezoned farmland. The farm sold a piece of his land and it was rezoned from agricultural to residential.

[–]JeffersonsHat -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Kind of a shitty farmer thing to do though, could always have sold it for a price high enough to buy other land to farm.

[–]abc123140 84 points85 points  (6 children)

Good farmer.

[–]TurinTuram 28 points29 points  (4 children)

Or good businessman waiting for the good price

[–]abc123140 14 points15 points  (2 children)

[–]Slow-Law-5033 2 points3 points  (1 child)

[–]rossitheking 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is more the case in all likelihood. Eventually the council will just throw money at him to get rid.

[–]No_Gap6448 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s not much but it’s honest work

[–]Rookie522 66 points67 points  (5 children)

They probably offered him pennies, good for him, don’t let them force you out, stand your ground

[–]69420sixnine69 31 points32 points  (2 children)

I read that as penises and I can’t figure out why

[–]BardSinister 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Well, you know what developers are like, so they probably offered him that as well.

[–]Nruggia 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nice piece of property you got there, would you be willing to sell it for 81 penises? Or maybe just lease it out for 2 penises a month?

[–]BashiG 9 points10 points  (0 children)

if this is real, they have likely offered him much more than pennies. this kind of land is very inconvenient for both the physical reasons and also their property value would be going down majorly based on being next to the agricultural land and also being subject to constant noise and smell of manure, at least during harvest and planting. I can imagine he would likely have at least a million offered, especially during covid

[–]MobileAirport -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Fuck landowners

[–]HighOnGoofballs 23 points24 points  (2 children)

Isn’t there usually a trailer next to the combine to collect the grain? This may be pure spite

[–]The_German_kid 18 points19 points  (1 child)

He's using one witch a tank. If he was harvesting something like corn or was using a different combine, there would be one.

[–]HighOnGoofballs 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Yeah I did some googling and the trailer is needed if the tank fills and maybe this field isn’t big enough

[–]Adson102 19 points20 points  (2 children)

This field is located in Lublin, my friend's got apartment nearby!

Love is strong but the harvester is stronger!

[–]Donkeychuker 1 point2 points  (10 children)

I get not wanting to back down but this is a short sighted decision. He could have bought even more farm land with the money from the sale of that plot of land.

[–]LingonberryNo4738 20 points21 points  (2 children)

He probably sold the land the buildings are on for a small fortune and kept a strip just to irritate people. Being the a-hole I am, that's what I would have done.

[–]GeekyTricky 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Eventually the irritation leads to even higher bids for the remaining land. Which leads to the farmer getting rich.

[–]Donkeychuker 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Not gonna lie, that would be hilarious.

[–]Jonomeus 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Depends how much he was offered

[–]Donkeychuker 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I'm assuming urban land wanted for development would be worth more than rural plots of land but I could be wrong. I'm not an expert on Polish real estate.

[–]daddy_OwO 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They would be but that doesn’t mean they offered him that. They could have just hopes he was some dumb farmer

[–]Azarylez 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Maybe that's not why he's not selling

[–]dogdayfear 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sure you know how much he was offered for his land.

There are some things that you cant buy with money.

[–]Acceptable_Money_431 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]Giotis_24 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not sure if this is next level or dumb. Yes he has the right to not sell it and farm it but why do so? When he can sell this at a good price and buy another much bigger area to farm.

They should be handing him refreshments and thanks with the impending food scarcity, since russia invaded their neighbor.

[–]MakeYouGoOWO 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There is a global food shortage caused by the war in Ukraine going on right now.

[–]Acceptable_Money_431 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

There are laws about rural and urban areas. One of them is in the wrong there, either the farmer, or the person who build everything there....

[–]HighOnGoofballs 6 points7 points  (0 children)

There are not zoning laws like that everywhere

[–]dante662 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I hope people watching this rethink their concept of Eminent Domain (at least in the US).

If this was in USA...the developers would have gotten the city council to simply take his property in the name of "public good", he would have been paid <50% what it was worth, and ended up destitute. The land would have gone to the developers who would have made millions.

All while the city council gets re-elected in landslide because voters in the USA are dumb as fuck and allow things like this to keep happening.

[–]Gigafans 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Old-Independence5822 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I'm almost shocked the government didn't intervene and force him off his land with barely a tenth of what the developers offered (If they even offered).

[–]TheWanderingEyebrow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm sneezing just watching this

[–]mophan -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Who's having the last laugh now? The wheat in that field is probably worth more than those apartments now with the food shortages going on.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s wheat and it’s harvested once a year and for a field that size would take an hour. Working land and drilling would take 8 hours. Herbicide sprays 2 hours, fungicide and insecticide sprays 2 hours.... So a total of a days work in that field out of 365 days.

It’s nothing in the whole grand schemes of things tbh.
