“Now is a very good time to invest in one of human civilization’s oldest and most reliable sources of wealth… farmland.”Justin Anderson, Yahoo Finance
Rising fear of inflation is causing many investors to direct their money towards bonds or alternative asset classes instead of the stock market. Despite investors’ concerns, the Federal Reserve continues to hold rates steady, calling any inflation increases “transitory” amid the government stimulus.
For investors interested in hedging against periods of inflation, farmland is an exceptional asset to diversify an investment portfolio. As the price of consumer goods rises, the price of commodities (such as food) typically rises as well. Food is necessary for survival, so an increase in prices will not affect demand compared to non-essential consumer goods. An increase in the price of food is often accompanied by an increase in the value of farmland — thus making now a prime time to invest in one of our country’s most valuable assets.
