FarmTogether, an investment crowdfunding platform allowing smaller investors to invest in farms, has announced a new Sustainable Farmland Fund.
FarmTogether, which reports approximately $175 million in assets under management (AUM) says the new Fund will further its mission to the asset class for all investors as “demand for sustainable and safe-haven assets reaches new levels.”
David Chan, FarmTogether COO, and founding team member, stated:
“We are pleased to offer investors access to a diversified fund of sustainable farmland investment properties through the FarmTogether Sustainable Farmland Fund. Through this product, we hope to increase ease and accessibility for investors who prefer a hands-off diversified approach to real asset strategies and impact investments, such as sustainable farmland.”
Separate from its legacy crowdfunding product, the Fund will immediately provide a diversified product of pre-selected farms for investors. The Fund aims for a net annualized return of 8-10% and a net annual target distribution of 4-6%. The minimum investment is $100,000, and the minimum hold period is two years.
FarmTogether’s Fund is expected to invest in a range of farmland opportunities across both permanent and row crops in prime growing regions of the U.S., including tree nuts, citrus, and apples. Investments in the FarmTogether Sustainable Fund will target the following allocation:
- 50% tree nuts, 25% tree fruit, 15% citrus, 10% row crops
- 40% CA, 30% WA & Upper Midwest, 20% OR, 10% AZ & OK
The company says that farmland has historically generated both attractive absolute and risk-adjusted returns while providing investors protection against inflation and economic downturns, claiming that historical data indicates that farmland returns have outperformed the CPI by 7.74%, on average, in the past five decades.
FarmTogether serves accredited investors but also accepts international investors. A minimum investment of $15,000 is required to participate in most offerings..
