AGinvest Farmland Properties Canada provides investors access to premium Canadian farmland.
AGinvest Farmland Properties has a mission to protect the integrity of Canadian farmland for future generations. We work with farmers to help their operations quickly achieve scale and become more profitable. We provide unique transition opportunities for the wave of farmland transfers set to take place over the next decade. We help young farmers quickly achieve scale and make their farming operations more profitable.
AGinvest Farmland Properties recognizes that farmland is an asset that continues to generate more value through higher production and increased efficiencies. Ontario farmland, in particular, is extremely well-positioned to help supply the planet with the increasing demand for quality food. We believe quality farmland that can adapt to climate change is positioned to perform very well relative to other asset classes.
