Why Do We Exist?
Farmers Capital connects like-minded investors in the agricultural space who are interested in diversifying into commercial real estate. As equity partners in tangible assets, our investors establish secure and hands-off income streams and portfolio diversification resistant to the often volatile, unpredictable economic and environmental conditions that affect their core business. We believe hard-earned farm profits should create additional financial security rather than additional stress caused by the volatile stock market, uncertain commodity prices, government regulations, and global trade fluctuations.
Financial stress is alleviated when a steady, passive income stream is securely in place, enabling the farmer-investor to meet the inevitable challenges of agricultural life and livelihood.
Farmers Capital invests in sound, straightforward real estate operated by highly competent folks that generate consistent returns over time. Our strategy allows investors to take advantage of actual, compounded returns while benefiting from all of the financial advantages of United States real estate. We sleep easy knowing our investor capital is secured with tangible assets, straightforward business plans, and competent operators.

Farmers Capital's guiding vision is to bring greater prosperity and financial freedom to 1,000 farmers over the next decade through hands-off, passive income.
The values embedded in Farmers Capital Group ensure the organization operates and remains, on purpose, in service to our investors and protecting their capital, our #1 priority. Integrity is our foundational principle. Coupled with our commitment to transparency, this "moral compass" guides our decision-making, problem-solving, and pledge to deliver world-class service to our clients in the agricultural community.

How We Make It Happen
Much like a farmer institutes systems that are integral to a successful yield each season – everything from what to plant and when, how to ensure optimal growing conditions, and when to harvest, Farmers Capital has a strategic plan and the tactical measures to support that plan, keeping it responsive as market conditions change and new opportunities emerge.
With deep subject matter expertise – and first-hand experience – in both the financial and agricultural sectors, we competently exercise due diligence on deals and operators across the country, identify intelligent investment opportunities, and confidently manage and monitor the performance of our assets.
