  • Selling your farm

    You can sell your farm and continue to operate it under a leasing arrangement. Strengthen your balance sheet by turning equity into liquidity from the sale of farmland. We are always in the market for farmland and can provide liquidity to make capital improvements, change the ownership structure, or deploy that capital in other areas.

    We are looking to work with experienced and innovative farmers wanting to expand their operations. We can help farm operators scale up operations, modernize equipment, and invest in other areas. 

    Some of the benefits of working with us may include: 

    • Flexible leasing agreements and lease terms
    • Increased liquidity 
    • Immediately deployable capital
    • Improved productivity and efficiency 
    • Potential shared infrastructure 
    • Concerned stewards of the land, the environment, and the community
    • Partnership opportunities

    Transitioning the farm to the next generation is an exciting milestone. We may be able to help provide solutions for retirement, successorship, or setting an estate.

Are you looking to sell your farm?

We offer solutions for farmers looking to capitalize on current land values and deploy capital elsewhere. We look to acquire high-quality farmland in Canada. The land may be dryland, irrigated, or developmental farmland, with a preference for properties that are over 640 acres.
