Farming generates returns from both crops and land appreciation. Because it produces both active and passive returns, farmland is a very attractive income-generating asset class. With investment platforms like AcreTrader, FarmTogether and LandEx, fractional farmland investing is now very much a reality.

We research and write about farmland opportunities from time to time. Follow this asset if you’re interested. We’ll send occasional updates.

I read your emails pretty religiously. Your issue on investing in tax liens is one of my absolute favorites. Great coverage for an otherwise totally grey area that seems to have little mindshare within the broader REI community.

I've recently discovered the Alts newsletter, and am enjoying it. They don't strictly focus on digital assets, which actually helps it keep it more unique in my opinion.
