Worried about inflation? Invest in organic farmland

“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

Although portfolio diversification and the financial upside of farmland investment are at the forefront of our investors’ minds, Iroquois Valley investors are equally concerned with supporting independent farmers, healthy food production, and environmental improvement. When you invest in Iroquois Valley, you are partnering alongside 500+ mission-driven investors working to provide organic farmers with land security and financing. Join us as we invest in the health of our planet, our soil, and our people.
