Dear FutureMoneyTrends.com Member,
I believe in wealth building through real diversification. Unfortunately nearly all the licensed financial planners I know want you to be 100% in the stock market, either through mutual funds or individual shares of a company. This isn’t real diversification because no matter how you look at it, you are 100% in one asset class.
Real Diversification should Look like this:
- Private businesses
- Publicly listed companies (stocks)
- Rental real estate
- Specialized dividend paying savings accounts
- Precious Metals
- Collectibles (Guns, Fine Art, Rare Items)
- Private lending
Like residential real estate is, it easy to understand how you make money, of course with farmland the only bad tenants are weeds, bugs, and maybe a few ground squirrels.
Investing in Farmland
There are a few ways to invest in farmland that are pretty direct.
- Become a physical farmer
- Invest the financial markets through ETF’s or Agriculture businesses
- Own farmland that is leased out or ran by a professional farmer
Option #1 – Not really an option for most of us at all, last year I tried to start a garden and it didn’t turn out so good. Growing crops is not easy and it certainly isn’t something you just pick up overnight by reading a book or watching a YouTube video on farming.
Option #2 – Overall these have been pretty bad investments. I like the small micro-cap names, but the larger companies remind me of the large cap miners, just horrible investments over the long term.
Option #3 – For me this is really the only option. Owning land, especially cash flowing land, has historically been a way to great riches. I want to be on title, or at least be part of a business partnership that owns the land.
Finding an opportunity like this wasn’t easy, I spent months speaking with different companies who specialize in these type of transactions.
The main deal killer was that almost all of these companies that help you buy farmland completely take over the management of your money, locking it into a 5 year venture that offers no cash flow! Oh and to add to it, most of these groups want a minimum of $1 million.

Myself and the staff at FMT have relentlessly searched for a real opportunity for our members and ourselves to own farmland.
We had a strict criteria:
- Individual Investors had to own the land, that means your name on title.
- Immediate cash flow.
- Solid property management company to partner with.
- A crop that is easy to understand.
- Legacy investment, something we could own forever.
Have a Prosperous Week!,
