We help farmers create long-term partnerships with investors to help them grow, reduce debt & maintain access.
1. Apply for a sale-leaseback
Share some basic information about your property, farming practices & background.
2. Choose your rent price
One of our Land Support Specialists will help you determine what rent price to offer, assist you with the numbers & walk you through the process.
3. Get connected
Once approved, your property will get connected to qualified investors who are interested in doing sale-leasebacks with progressive farmers.
A sale-leaseback is when a farmer sells their land to an investor, then leases it back on a long-term basis. It can be an effective means of alternative financing.
Strengthen your balance sheet
Improve cash flow
Maintain long-term land access
Through FarmlandFinder, a progressive farmer can get connected with a qualified investor to create a long-term financial partnership.
If you could sell some of your land and lease it back on a long-term basis, unlocking equity that's tied up in the land and giving you excess cash to finance your business how you see fit, would you?
A sale-leaseback can be an effective means of alternative financing for progressive farmers. An investor acquires the land from the farm owner-operator and leases it back on a long-term basis to the existing farmer.
Pay down debt & gain access to capital so you can reinvest in equipment, inputs & infrastructure to optimize your farming operations.
Does money always feel tight? Increase your financial flexibility to operate your farm with less risk & less stress.

We're here to help.
FarmlandFinder provides optionality for progressive farm families, which can be an enabling factor to support their long-term strategic planning. In turn, FarmlandFinder offers farmland investors an opportunity and clear path to gaining exposure to the unique investment characteristics of American farmland.
We're farm kids & boundary pushers.
In 2015, when standing at a land auction with his dad, our company's founder realized that his family was going to have a difficult time expanding their operation if they couldn't think differently about accessing land. If they could expand their land base, without taking on additional debt or find a way to unlock equity that was tied up in land, they could have more control over how they invest in their business. However, no such solution existed for American farmland. This gap in the market led to the development of FarmlandFinder, which is headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa - right in the heartland.
We care deeply about the land.
The land is our heritage, our foundation and what we will build the future upon. It deserves to be taken care & be passed to the next generation with grace... that's why we do what we do.
