Driving change through agriculture investing with Chris Rawley

The Regenerative Real Estate Podcast

Agriculture is not a typical investment category that one may think about when they think of real estate investing. For Chris Rawley, he became interested in agriculture through his travels as part of his career in the Navy. He came from a real estate family and knew the mechanics of real estate, but didn’t know how to invest in local farms in his area. He decided to create Harvest Returns to help connect people wanting to invest in farms with small to medium sized farmers and producers across the US looking for capital. This show explores why agricultural land is getting driven up in price and where the winds of the industry are blowing. It helps to present a macro-view of the industry and what kind of investments are out there to incentivize a shift away from industrial agriculture.You can visit Harvest Returns at www.harvestreturns.com

However, there are numerous benefits to it, including the fact that it is a great diversification tool. That is why our guest, Chris Rawley, is so passionate and excited about the farming space and why he and his partner pioneered a crowdfunding platform, Harvest Returns, to make it easier for the rest of us to invest in agriculture. Before choosing the kind of agriculture you want to invest in, Chris highlights the importance of understanding the revenue sources of the farm and the time period within which you can expect to receive returns.Our gracious sponsors:Lionshare Bookkeeping believes the key to generating wealth is understanding where it comes from, and where it needs to go.
