We are Bringing Agribusiness Stakeholders Together

Significant changes are occurring in the agribusiness sector; these changes will dramatically impact the management of agribusiness firms from sourcing of inputs through operations, finance, sales and marketing, to final customer contact. Awareness of these changes is critical for strategic positioning and planning.

Ever wonder where your money is going?

If you are like most people you’re continuously pumping money into investment accounts with no idea what your money is being used for or who has control of it.

Our solutions

Transparency

Traditional investments are typically pooled with thousands of investors, which are often distributed by a fund manager with no way of knowing how your funds are being spent. Farmshares give you clarity to know that you’re actually purchasing what you want.

Simplistic Investments

Today’s complex investment environment makes it almost impossible to keep up your investment objectives. We’ve always been told that 2 things are always certain: Death and Taxes. What was left out ??? Agriculture production. The most stably consumed products in the world.

Socially Responsible

Farmshares allow investors to get in the fight to end world hunger. The more food we produce the less people will go hungry. Our mission is not only to increase the food supply, but increase the healthy food supply.

Our Project Locations

Farmfolio focuses throughout Central and South America to locate the most ideal locations and markets for shareholders. Due to it’s steady climates, rich soil, and low labor costs, Central and South America is the ideal location to invest in the agriculture supply chain.
