I always thought I'd open a U-pick. Growing trees has been such a pain I realize that will never happen now.
When I finally realized I would never be able to grow food for other people on any large scale, I started focusing on wildlife management, which fortunately gives us the same tax status as agriculture. I suck at agriculture but I can "manage" wildlife. The management is just providing better habitat for them. If you're interested in that sort of thing you might see if your state has any programs to help landowners improve their place for wild critters. You might even think about eventually selling a hunting lease on part of your land if the land isn't restricted against it. Our deed restricts against selling hunting leases but we can invite friends to hunt deer here, and they share the meat so we get something from it.
