Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

You really need to know the shape (square, rectangular, other?) and the dimensions.

The acreage is the area expressed in acres, an acre is 43560 square feet. If the farm is rectangular, the area (in square feet) is the product of the length and width of the rectangle. But the perimeter is twice the sum of the length and width.

For any given area, there are numerous combinations (from square to long and skinny) of length and width that would give you that area, but have different perimeters.
