Farmfolio makes farmland ownership easy.
As our exceptional quality drives increasing demand, Farmfolio has quickly become one of the largest exporters in all of Colombia.
With our community of investors, owners, and employees numbering in the hundreds, and millions of dollars in LOTs under direct ownership, Farmfolio is a trusted source for creating value through agriculture. Our hands-on approach means we identify, develop, manage, and provide ongoing oversight for every piece of land in our portfolio, and our esteemed reputation and track record reflects our commitment to the success of our projects.
Farmfolio is based on the understanding that the agriculture space, especially in emerging markets, is a world of untapped potential. We have created a pioneering integrated system for agribusiness development designed to create significant value across the supply chain and deliver that value back to LOT owners. This is how we make farmland ownership easy for everyone.
Our Process to Farmland Ownership.
Farmfolio develops, acquires, and operates commercial scale farms.
We then subdivide the land into parcels. We call these Land Ownership Titles (LOTs). Our LOTs system makes farmland ownership easy and affordable for everyone by offering direct ownership of fractionalized land growing in-demand, permanent crops.
Farmfolio establishes a Farm Owners Association (FOA) similar to a Homeowners Association which then coordinates all farming, harvesting, and product sales.
You purchase the land and take title in your name, entity, or your Individual Retirement Account (IRA), and you can always sell your title or transfer ownership to an heir or other beneficiary.
Your FOA Administrator will keep you informed of your farm’s production, and it will also facilitate all harvest revenues and annual dues.
You continue to receive harvest revenue until you decide to realize any land capital appreciation by selling it through Farmfolio’s brokerage platform.
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.
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.
Farmfolio is bringing our investors to the doorstep of the world’s economy, linking you with the global marketplace to move your product. We are connecting people and products through real-time market engagement, and we are constantly looking for new opportunities to capitalize on the ever-growing demand for the products produced on our farms.
Farmfolio’s global connections allow us to enter markets on our own terms. Our international team puts in the groundwork, keeping a close eye on markets and establishing a customer base that allows us to access these markets directly. We control our products when they arrive to market, which allows us to pivot in response to market volatility, avoid price drops, and diversify our client base.
Thanks to having our own portfolio of proprietary brands, we are freed from having to rely on importers. By controlling our distribution channels and engaging with markets in real-time, we can connect the right people with the right products with lightning-fast efficiency. With this process, Farmfolio is building global distribution channels based on quality, consistency, and adaptability. Neat and orderly for us, worry-free for you.
This step involves leveraging our global presence to generate interest in a new product. We meet with buyers, distribute specification sheets, and assess market conditions on location. This is made possible by our promotion desk and international sales team with the objective of building a strong network of interested buyers and raising awareness of forthcoming products.
In this part of the process, we send a sample of our products to the prospective buyer to better understand customer feedback and specifications. This is a learning process on both ends and usually lasts several weeks, and often leads to a new purchase agreement. This is also a filtering process, as we learn which customers have the potential to grow into long-term profitable relationships.
During the market implementation phase it is critical to demonstrate consistency, dependability, and quality, as this is when the product’s reputation is formed. Distributors need to know they have a reliable selling source, and it is critical to respond swiftly to any issues they may have with quality, volume, or logistics. Our local presence is essential during this phase, as our real-time engagement with the market allows us to pivot and adjust strategy according to market conditions. This responsiveness helps us build our reputation with buyers and secure our leadership place in the market.
After the product has been established on the market, and buyers recognize the quality and dependability of the brand, a more aggressive approach can be pursued. This involves increasing volumes, seeking out new markets, and further developing relationships. Establishing proof of volume is critical, as it demonstrates to buyers that our brands can deliver large volumes of product consistently.
This step begins with a comprehensive financial analysis of the supply chain costs to identify opportunities for savings, and it often reveals possibilities for volume discounts to increase competitiveness. By negotiating purchase minimums with third-party vendors, margins can be increased and profitability maximized.
Farmfolio’s vertical integration allows us to enter emerging markets quickly and efficiently with a superior product quality.
