LandFund Partners acquires, manages and improves row crop farmland properties in the Mississippi River Valley (MRV). Exceptional crop diversity, groundwater abundance and lower prices per acre are key to the firm’s MRV focus. Farms are sourced on an opportunistic basis from LandFund’s deal pipeline and underwritten to strict investment criteria. The farms are leased to operators under the supervision of an experienced management team.
In addition to LandFund’s successful track record with commingled funds, the firm offers Direct Investment Accounts with tailored strategies for larger clients seeking to optimize farmland returns in their portfolio.
LandFund’s long-term base of limited partners includes Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs), Family Offices, Fund of Funds, Trust Companies, and Institutional Investors.
Farmland Investment Returns
Fundamental trends in global population growth and protein consumption are increasing the demand for row crops, particularly grains. Farmland investment returns have historically been non-correlated with other major asset classes, offered an inflationary hedge and served as a good tool for capital preservation.
