New crowdfunding website to assist people fund farmland
Almond trees are blossoming with flowers and soon they will be blossoming with financial opportunities.
“What’s good is now you can invest in farmland if you’re not a wealthy individual. So before it was institutional investors putting in millions of dollars, buying an entire farm, managing it. Now you can invest for as little as $10,000 (£8,153.95) and own a portion of a farm,” said Brandon Silveira, FarmFundr founder.
Silveira is a 4th generation farmer and founder of FarmFundr, a crowdfunding website that wants to make it easier for people to own farms without having to do all the work.
The website just launched and allows everyday people to own crops.
“We have state of the art technology where you click invest, it goes into escrow and you own a farm. It’s pretty much that simple,” said Silveira.
