Frequently Asked Questions

Farmland investing is relatively straight forward, but here are some questions we commonly get from our clients.

Who Are The Land/Farm Managers?

The Crawfords work with a local farm manager which oversees day to day operations on the properties.

What Due Diligence Is Performed Prior To Purchase?

Mark Crawford personally identifies each property. A thorough review of location, soil, water and adaptability for the intended crop is performed by the Crawfords, experienced farmers and environmental consultants. Additionally, a financial analysis is performed on the anticipated revenues and expenditures to evaluate the property’s profit feasibility.

Do I Own The Actual Property?

Yes, but not a specific part of the property. You have an ownership in the Limited Liability Company. Your name will not be on title, but the Limited Liability Company of which you are a member holds legal title to the property.

If I Invest, Do I Become Personally Liable?

No, property ownership is held under a Limited Liability Company structure. Investors are not personally liable under a Limited Liability Company.

If I Invest, Do I Become Personally Liable?

No, property ownership is held under a Limited Liability Company structure. Investors are not personally liable under a Limited Liability Company.

Who Is Eligible To Invest?

Only Accredited Investors can invest. An accredited investor earns income that exceeds $200,000 in each of the prior two years and reasonably expects the same for the current year, or has a net worth over $1 million (excluding the value of the person’s primary residence),

Is The Investment Liquid?

Farmland is a long-term investment. Expect to hold your investment for five to fifteen years. However, your shares can be sold to others in a private transaction.

How Do I Make Money?

Investors receive income from crop sales. Payments available to investors are estimated on a net available cash flow calcluation: income minus expenses, debt payments, capital expenditures and reserves.

Can I Invest Using a Self-Directed IRA?

Yes.

What Are The Risks?

An investment in a Security is highly speculative and involves a high degree of risk. Therefore, in evaluating the Investment and its business, prospective investors should carefully consider the risks set forth below, which are only a few of the risks associated with an investment. Prospective investors should be in a position to risk the loss of their entire investment.

  • Illiquidity of real estate investments could significantly impede the Investment’s ability to respond to adverse changes in the performance of the Investment Property and could harm its financial condition.   

  • An investment in a Security is highly speculative and involves a high degree of risk. Therefore, in evaluating the Investment and its business, prospective investors should carefully consider the risks set forth below, which are only a few of the risks associated with an investment. Prospective investors should be in a position to risk the loss of their entire investment.

  • The geographic concentration of the Investment’s portfolio could cause it to be more susceptible to adverse weather, economic or regulatory changes or developments in the market in which the Property is located, than if it owned a more geographically diverse portfolio.

  • If the Investment Property does not have access to adequate water supplies or proper drainage, then it could have a material adverse impact on the operations and the value of the Property.

  • The seasonal variability of the crop grown on the Investment Property could have a material adverse effect on its revenues.

  • Future climate changes could materially adversely impact the Investment’s operations and the value of the Property, and consequently the amounts it is able to distribute to Members. 

  • The Investment Property may experience negative financial impacts from worldwide pandemics, such as Covid-19, that may adversely affect the Company’s results of operations.

  • Agricultural technology enhancements, including genetic engineering, could adversely impact the Investment’s anticipated returns, which in turn could have a materially adverse effect on its results of operations and financial condition.

  • Adverse changes in government policies related to farming and farmland, including decreases in farm subsidies, tax incentives or the percentage of ethanol that must be blended into fuel, could reduce prices of crops and the profitability of farming operations, which could materially adversely affect the Company’s operations and the value of the Property.  

  • Acquiring farmland and farms related to farming during periods when such farms are experiencing substantial inflows of capital and intense competition may result in inflated purchase prices and increase the likelihood that the Property will not appreciate in value and may, instead, decrease in value.   

  • If the U.S. Federal Reserve or other central banks embark on a substantial tightening of monetary policy in the future that causes real interest rates to rise, then it may cause land prices to decline if the rise in real interest rates is not accompanied by rises in the general levels of inflation, and the Investment would also experience higher costs of financing. A stronger U.S. dollar could also negatively impact exports, which could negatively impact the Company’s financial results. 

  • Liability for uninsured or underinsured losses could adversely affect the Investment’s financial condition and revenues.   

  • Potential liability for environmental matters could adversely affect the Investment’s financial condition.   

  • The presence of endangered or threatened species on or near the Investment Property could restrict its farming activities, which could in turn have a material adverse effect on its operations and the value of the Property.

  • New legislation or regulations affecting the U.S. agricultural sector, particularly with respect to water use, could have a material adverse effect on the Investment’s operations and the value of the Property.

  • The tariffs on crops imported from the United States imposed by Foreign entities may have a material adverse effect on the Investment’s revenues.  

  • Tax Classification under current law could change. The Investment is initially classified as a partnership, and not as an association taxable as a corporation, for federal income tax purposes. Tax Classification can be revised by the government which could affect investor’s tax status.

  • The Investment Company is a newly organized business entity and has no operating history upon which an evaluation of its performance and prospects can be made.  

  • The Investment Company may be unable to pay distributions.  

  • The Investment Company’s success is dependent upon the continued services of Mark and Joanna Crawford.

Do The Crawfords Take a Carried Interest in Each Farm’s Upside? 

Yes, the investors receive a preferred return and the Crawfords participate in profits above the preferred return.
