We’ve all seen it, driving along a midwestern highway or flying over in an airplane. As a tangible object, farmland is easily understood. What’s less obvious is farmland’s role as an investment asset class.

But as economic conditions prompt allocations to alternative assets with lower volatility to market and a potential inflation hedge, investors are catching on. What was once an underutilized and inaccessible asset is playing a larger role in more investors’ long term strategies.

How big of an asset class is farmland? What does its potential return profile look like? And how do you differentiate between factors like crop, geographic, and investment structure in order to find the farmland investment opportunity that suits your goals?

Our new white paper, “Investing In U.S. Farmland,” covers these questions and much more in a comprehensive introduction to farmland as an asset class. In this report, we dive deep into:

  • Farmland’s historical performance, including its risks, returns, and correlation with other assets
  • How capital gains and annual income from different types of farmland have a history of combining to produce consistent return opportunities
  • How what’s going on in the farm economy affects investment performance
