AcreTrader is a real estate investing platform that makes it easy to buy shares of farmland and earn passive income.
United States farmland has historically outperformed most asset classes and other forms of real estate. Unfortunately, buying and maintaining farmland directly is extremely difficult without local knowledge and management, as well as large investment commitments. AcreTrader solves these issues by providing transparency, flexibility, and ease of use to people wanting to invest in farmland while handling all aspects of administration and property management, from insurance and accounting to working with local farmers and improving soil sustainability. At the same time, AcreTrader works to help farmers scale through innovative sales and leasing opportunities.
On the AcreTrader platform, investors can currently invest in three types of farmland: row crops, permanent crops, and timberland properties.
* Row crops, or annual crops, are things like corn, soybeans, rice, and cotton. These crops are planted and harvested every year.
* Permanent crops, like tree nuts, tree fruits, and vines are stationary and generally harvested every year.
* A timber investment consists of productive land plus growing trees; the trees can be natural or planted.
AcreTrader makes it easy for investors to invest in farmland without being required to do all of the work to conduct due diligence or even knowing how to operate a farm. Our farm analysts spend countless hours reviewing potential farmland listings to find investment-grade opportunities, and our model allows individuals to invest in the asset without having to put up the capital to buy an entire farm. We make investing easy by allowing investors to review potential offerings and sign legal documents securely online, as well as access all documents in one place through the investor dashboard. Finally, AcreTrader enables investors to support farmers and the business of farming, as each investment property is leased to an individual farmer seeking to expand their operation.
We serve individuals, family offices, and institutions seeking long term, historically stable investment opportunities. It’s important to note that AcreTrader is currently only open to accredited investors. To qualify as an accredited investor, you must meet certain thresholds as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission under Rule 501 of Regulation D.
