Farmland Marketing Group Says Invest in US Farmland & Help a Farmer

Only One Group of Farmland Investment Funds Offers Individual Investors, Residing in the US, an Opportunity to Participate in the Income and Appreciation Generated by Domestic Grain Farms for a Minimum of $25,000

MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwire - Sep 1, 2011) - We've all read the stories; in the decades ahead a growing world population, climate change and a diminishing supply of farmland, will all contribute to food shortages, rising food costs, appreciating farmland values and, theoretically, big returns for anyone investing in US farmland and other agriculturally-based investments.

But how do you invest if you are an individual investor living in the U.S.?

One group of Funds has addressed this very issue and has created individual Funds that should be very attractive, to not only investors, but also to farmers themselves.

Like seed companies, grain processing facilities, and retail grocery chains, American grain farmers are consolidating to become more profitable and to monetize the substantial equity they have built up in their farming operations.

Investors can feel good about the investment because these Funds allow farmers to get the liquidity they need and want for things like retirement funding and estate liquidity without incurring a capital gains tax and they still get to keep their farms.

Perhaps best of all, investors don't have to go through a broker they can buy direct from the Funds without paying a commission.

See Farmland Marketing's Archives for more information, including:

  • Why American Farmland Partners and American Farmland Partners Corporation will dominate domestic farmland acquisitions in the future.
  • There is less US farmland for sale now than at any time in history. This story illustrates why domestic farmland acquisitions may dry up all together for non-farm investors.
  • Grain farms are earning high cash returns. Add to the list of investment features an 8% plus cash return, on top of heavy appreciation, capital preservation, and the inflation-hedging properties farmland has always possessed, and you've got a serious performing investment vehicle.
  • Directed at farmers, this release enumerates the various reasons why a farmer may want to consider selling to American Farmland Partners or American Farmland Partners Corporation over an outright sale.

It is the Mission of the Farmland Marketing Group to educate farmers and potential investors about the benefits of becoming part of what will be the world's first publicly-traded consolidation of independent grain producers.
