Farmland Investing 101
Farmland has provided investors with consistent returns for decades, but gaining exposure to this alternative asset has been a challenge in the past.
Today, you can invest passively in farmland through crowdfunded real estate platforms like AcreTrader.
Instead of buying a farm yourself, investors pool their money together. And instead of managing the farmland yourself, AcreTrader takes care of that. They handle everything from the paperwork to finding a suitable farmland renter.
To date, the team over at AcreTrader has funded 149 properties, totaling over $365 Million in equity raised. This has been invested into over 50,000 acres of farmland.
