AcreTrader is a real estate investing platform that makes it easy to buy shares of farmland and earn passive income, starting in just minutes online. United States farmland has historically outperformed most asset classes and other forms of real estate.

Unfortunately, buying and maintaining farmland directly is extremely difficult without local knowledge, management, and large investment commitments. AcreTrader solves these issues by providing transparency, flexibility, and ease of use to people wanting to invest in farmland while handling all aspects of administration and property management, from insurance and accounting to working with local farmers and improving soil sustainability.

AcreTrader carefully reviews each farm, selecting less than 1% of the total parcels considered, then places each farm offering in a unique legal entity and offers shares to investors through their online platform.

Recently, the Fayetteville, Arkansas based company closed on an almond orchard investment located in Tulare County, California.  An incredible milestone for the farming industry, the $3.2 million deal, which incorporated $1.6 million of funding in addition to $1.6 million of debt, is considered to be the most investment capital ever raised online via crowdfunding for the purchase of a farm.

Current offerings include a soybean and corn farm in Iowa; and a corn, soybean and peanut farm in Woodruff, Arkansas.
