Great for the casual player (someone who only checks the city once or twice a day) is a plethora of farms early game (when your city is still under 30k) you will want to purchase land plots straight west up the railroad track line to the mountain face expand that line of plots FIRST (otherwise these pieces of land become a premium later in the game) filling all the open space with farms.
Later in the game as you begin to have population growth you can outdo a single farm with one Convenience Store in the Per/hr (however you have to collect from them every two hours) yet takes up a quarter of the land size.
