FAQ

    • FarmTogether offers a diverse set of investment solutions that provide financial advisors and wealth managers with multiple avenues to access high-quality farmland.

      The FarmTogether Sustainable Fund, launched in 2022, was designed with advisors and their clients’ needs in mind. The Fund provides investors with access to a diversified portfolio of farmland via a single allocation. Additionally, we have Crowdfunded offerings, sole ownership Bespoke offerings, and Tenancy in Common (TIC) offerings.

    • Despite being one of the oldest asset classes, farmland has remained underrepresented in investors’ portfolios due to the fragmentation of land ownership, high capital requirements, and unique knowledge and experience to underwrite properties. FarmTogether offers a diverse set of investment solutions to help overcome these barriers to entry and enable greater accessibility to advisors. 

      Farmland investments have an attractive track record of uncorrelated returns with low stability relative to competing assets. 

      The value of farmland is not solely reliant on market sentiment or economic conditions, meaning farmland returns have been historically uncorrelated to conventional assets, such as stocks, bonds, real estate, and short-term agricultural commodity prices, as well as broader market indices. Since 1992, farmland has experienced net positive growth each year, averaging 10.52% in total annual returns. This performance has outpaced real estate (7.84%), equities (10.07%), bonds (4.67%), and REITs (9.21%). 

      Moreover, farmland returns have experienced historically less volatility. Between 1992 and 2023, the NCREIF Farmland Index had a standard deviation of 6.61%; in comparison, the volatility of the S&P 500 was 17.71%.

    • Farmland can be a suitable allocation for various investment objectives, whether your clients are looking to diversify from traditional investments, such as equities and fixed income, or those who wish to reallocate capital from other real asset strategies.

      Farmland has historically been a defensive and resilient asset, delivering attractive risk-adjusted returns throughout the economic cycle, and even during inflationary periods. Farmland’s return profile is twofold: appreciation of the land and cash flow from either rental income or crop income. 

      Due to its historically attractive appreciation and income potential, a farmland strategy can be beneficial for both short- and long-term strategies.

    • As traditional portfolios continue to be tested by uncertain macroeconomic and geopolitical conditions, as well as persistent inflation, farmland may offer investors counter-cyclical exposure and downside protection for their portfolios.

      The value of farmland is not solely reliant on market sentiment or economic conditions; rather, its value is influenced by a combination of agricultural-specific factors, such as crop prices, changing consumption habits, and long-term supply and demand dynamics. As a result, farmland returns have historically exhibited a low correlation with other asset classes, offering welcome diversification. Moreover, farmland’s historically low volatility can help provide overall stability, even during adverse market conditions. 

      Farmland is a historically attractive asset that can help advisors diversify their clients’ portfolios and optimize returns.
