Shiloh Farm is a 1,152 acre cotton, soybean, and corn farm in Pender County, North Carolina with crop optionality and robust water resources in a strong agricultural region.
Pender County is located in North Carolina’s Inner Coastal Plain. This area is characterized by its flat topography and rich, sandy soils that support some of the state’s most productive farmland. Agriculture in this area benefits from a temperate climate, ample precipitation, and an extended growing season that allows for suitability to a multitude of crops.
North Carolina’s livestock industry contributes to strong local demand for commodities, which may result in higher regional prices for corn and soybeans. The state ranks second nationally in turkey production, third in pork, and fourth in broiler chickens. Pender County lies adjacent to the three largest livestock producing counties in the state.
Shiloh Farm’s 1,022 irrigated acres consist of Rains and Goldsboro fine sandy loams, soils common throughout the coastal plains. These soils are well-drained and can be supplemented with irrigation when necessary. A contiguous, tillable tract of this size is a rare find in this region.
The property is irrigated by both groundwater and surface water. Groundwater is delivered via five irrigation pivots and one linear system supplied by five wells that pull from the North Atlantic Coastal Plain Aquifer system, a large well-supplied aquifer that lies below the eastern third of the state.
In addition to groundwater resources, Pender County receives an average of 53 inches of rain annually. This surface water is retained from precipitation in the ditches and canals throughout the property and can be recycled into the irrigation system.
This offering includes a $195,000 allocation to make further improvements to the irrigation system. This includes water control structures for surface water retention, pivot bridges to help move water throughout the property, and the addition of another well.
Shiloh Farm will continue to be leased to its current operator. The farm has over 120,000 bushels of grain storage in addition to several other outbuildings. These structures will also be rented to the tenant, providing a supplemental income stream for investors.
5-10 year target hold period is anticipated.
The property will be managed by Acretrader Management, LLC, an affiliate of AcreTrader, Inc.
Standard AcreTrader management fee of 0.75% applies annually.
$195,000 capital improvement budget to fund key improvements.

The Project is in one agricultural region of North Carolina. This exposes the Company to greater economic risks than if it owned a more geographically diverse asset base. As a result of the geographic concentration of farmland, the Company is particularly susceptible to developments or conditions in this geographic area, including adverse weather conditions, earthquakes, transportation conditions, crop disease, pests and other adverse growing conditions, and unfavorable or uncertain political, economic, business or regulatory conditions.
Issues with Adequate Water
If the Property does not have access to adequate water supplies or if the Property’s irrigation infrastructure fails, it could harm the Company’s ability to lease the Property for farming or cause unexpected capital expenditure; thereby, adversely affecting the Company’s ability to generate returns, as well as decrease the value of the Property, which would negatively affect the Investor’s investment.
Execution Risk Associated with Planned Improvements
The Company may not effectively implement the planned improvements for the Property which could cause it to not be able to collect higher rent and thereby decrease cash available for distribution. The budget for improvements may be insufficient to complete the planned improvements which would have a materially adverse effect on returns to investors.
