Farmland: A Stable And Steady Investment

Farmland represents true diversification to a portfolio. NCREIF data shows farmland has produced a positive return every year since 1998.  Moreover, its average annual return in that time span was 11.2%.

Farmland’s annual returns between 1998 and 2002 have been much less volatile vs. the S&P 500

Correlations of Various Asset Classes (1991 to 2021)

Our diligent investment process and network of connections allows us to consider 60,000 tillable acres per month, often times consisting of off-market opportunities.

The use of a proprietary tool to identify value creation opportunities ensures every farm performs to its maximum production and preservation potential while also realizing an higher portfolio cash yields with strong, long-term tenants.
