Farmfolio Mission
Image

Since our founding in 2015, we’ve given individuals the unprecedented ability to become investors in the operations of a diverse selection of high-demand agricultural products in emerging markets, and now with our LOTs program, the opportunity to directly own the land.

As our exceptional quality drives increasing demand, our vertically-integrated distribution network has quickly become one of the largest exporters in Colombia.

With our community of farmland owners and employees rapidly growing, Farmfolio has become the trusted source for creating value through agriculture. We’ve developed a best-in-class operation that uses a modern and advanced data-driven approach to identify land with the highest quality trees, created a vertically-integrated supply chain with packhouse facilities, distribution channels, and brands, and pioneered a new approach to direct farmland ownership called LOTs (Land Ownership Titles).

These individual LOTs are owned by individuals, and each one is part of a larger plot of land that Farmfolio has purchased. There is no sweat equity required, as a third-party expert team on the ground manages the entire process. This includes planting, harvesting, land and tree maintenance, and ultimately selling and distributing in-demand products like limes, avocados, coconuts, and teak around the world. Farmland owners get to sit back and enjoy the returns.

Your Land. Your Income.

Our Process to Farmland Ownership.

1.

Farmfolio identifies and acquires commercial scale farms.

2.

We then subdivide the land into parcels called LOTs (Land Ownership Titles). Our LOTs system makes farmland ownership easy and affordable for everyone by offering direct ownership of fractionalized land growing in-demand, permanent crops.

3.

Farmfolio establishes a Farm Owners Association (FOA), which is similar to a Homeowners Association. The FOA is a cooperative that includes all of the land owners, and it audits the onsite third-party management team that handles everything from seed to shelf including land development, farm management, planting, harvesting, and selling.

4.

You purchase the land and take title in your name, entity, or your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) and become a member of the FOA for your farm. You can always sell your title or transfer ownership to an heir or other beneficiary.

5.

Your FOA Administrator will keep you informed of your farm’s production, and they will also be responsible for distributing harvest income returns and collecting dues.

6.

You will continue to receive harvest income until you decide to realize any land appreciation capital gain by selling it through Farmfolio’s brokerage platform.

Sell Your Products to the World.

Limes are more ubiquitous than you think. The U.S. imports them on such a massive scale that 97 percent of the limes they use are imported, and over 600 shipping containers packed with limes enter the country every week. European countries consider Colombian limes as one of the most visually appealing forms of the fruit. Indian cuisine uses limes as a staple for many of its dishes and seasonings. China’s booming demand for the fruit has made limes a very desirable superfood.

But there’s so much more to this fruit than meets the eye.

In the cleaning industry, limes are used to give harsh chemicals a more tolerable, enjoyable scent. In the hair and skincare industry, many shampoos, conditioners, and body washes are laced with the exfoliating, delectable scent of lime.

Health-conscious consumers in both developed and emerging markets worldwide have driven demand for this superfood to unprecedented levels. Dominated by the popular Hass variety, the global avocado market is forecasted to grow at a 4.8 percent CAGR until at least 2025.

Popular in ethnic foods, a variety of health-conscious choices, and in the ever-popular avocado toast, this fruit is already a staple on supermarket shelves in the U.S. and Europe. The Asian market also has a growing appetite for avocados, especially Japan and South Korea, where imports have grown 10 percent and 32 percent respectively.

The U.S. is the largest importer of avocados by a wide margin. The country’s large Latino population, as well as a deep-seated love of Mexican food across the country, is helping boost sales. Mexico currently supplies a large portion of the country’s imports (88 percent), but there is room for new suppliers to meet insatiable demand.

Avocados

Coconuts are iconic. Practically synonymous with warm weather, sunny beaches, and relaxation, their tropical allure has endeared consumers all over the world.

Dubbed a superfood, coconuts are rich in potassium, manganese, and zinc, which are all crucial to bone health and metabolism.
Coconut is another example of a rapidly growing market with ample room for new producers. Not only are coconuts a product with incredible versatility in terms of value-added potential, but several coconut’s diverse use sectors are growing at incredible rates.

The U.S. market for coconut water, for example, is forecasted to grow at a 25 percent CAGR over the next seven years, reaching a total value of $14 billion by 2027. And growth in other coconut products is not far behind. For example, coconut oil boasts a projected 13.5 percent CAGR and coconut milk is projected to grow 7.5 percent annually over the same period.

As global demand rises, it is estimated that by 2050 there will be a supply shortage for high-quality hardwoods that will require an additional 10 million hectares of forestry operations. Substantial investments in teak will be needed to meet demand and fill the supply gap.

As a financial asset, teak has seen an annual growth of approximately 5 percent throughout the last decade. For individuals interested in the environment and medium to long-term returns, teak continues to be one of the most popular and promising products to have in their portfolio.
