It’s an interesting idea. Currently, the US contains (officially) enough tillable land to give every adult around 4–5 acres. And the definition of “tillable” differs; the government probably considers land on a mountainside “untillable”, but if privately owned, where there’s a will, there’s a way.

However, the current owners of the land would probably object :-)
