FBF #479: Farmland Investing, The Ultimate Market Hedge — with Brian Luftman

Today’s Flash Back Friday Episode is from Episode #200, which originally aired on January 8,In this episode of the Real Estate Investing for Cashflow Podcast, Kevin shares the mic with Farmland Investor and Owner of American Farm Investors, Brian Luftman.

Originally as a commodities trader on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Brian was looking into a way to hedge his own investments against a financial meltdown based in commodities, aside from paper assets.

When looking for potential ways to invest his money in hard commodity assets however, Brian came up short. Nobody in the United States (whether it be an RE fund or otherwise) provided the option to syndicate deals to purchase farmland.

Brian then founded American Farm Investors; an investment firm specializing in raising capital for purchasing the very best farmland in the country producing the highest yearly yields.
