How's It Growing? 

 

Quotes

“Farmers who have invested in efficient operations, efficient water, efficient planting densities, and new varietals are still operating in the black.  And so that’s what’s very positive here because it means we believe that the future is very bright.”

(21:45)

“I really can’t overstate how large of a transfer of ownership is underway and expected to take place over the next 20 years.  The USDA actually projects 70% of all US farmland is going to trade hands over the next 20 years.  And it's, you know, I think it’s equivalent to about 500 million acres.  I think that’s twice the size of Alaska.” (27:04)

“We’re very proud to announce that we have 100% of our acres in a program called Leading Harvest, which is a broad sustainability standard for farmland investors in the United States.” (34:56)
