Who We Are 

Integrated Ag provides sophisticated investors a portfolio of farmland investments designed to create immediate capital appreciation through its value-add investment process. 

We are a fully integrated investment manager that sources, designs, develops, and operates value-add farmland investments. 

Our completed farms are the highest crop yielding and most efficient because we practice superior engineering and design. 

We deploy a private equity approach to acquiring and rehabilitating underutilized farmland. We apply a disciplined and patient investment philosophy. As a result, we only acquire assets that meet strict acquisition criteria resulting in superior long-term rates of return.

A Balanced Portfolio

We manage a portfolio of thousands of acres of farmland in the Southwest United States.  In most cases we directly operate the farms to enhance annual cash flows.  

Agricultural investing provides sophisticated investors many unique benefits, including attractive returns, portfolio diversification, low volatility, inflation protection, and excellent capital preservation. 

Value-Add Farmland Investing

We develop underutilized farmland, creating immediate value through the process. We focus on core improvements designed to increase the efficiency of the farm. 

Additionally, we will convert traditional farmland to higher value crops or certify the farm organic which creates additional value and meets exploding consumer demand for organic foods. 

Our farms are designed to grow a diverse set of crops including row crops (alfalfa, grains, etc.), permanent crops (date palms, citrus), and high value specialty crops (melons, produce, lettuce). 

 

 

 

"We do not wait for the market to rise in general, we create value immediately by finding deep value and applying our proprietary value-add process."

Our team is also comprised of managers with experience in land development, investment fund management, physical commodity trading, and operations of complex companies.

Integrated Ag Labs Initiative is a program we created for our farm managers, agronomists and engineers. The mission of the initiative is to innovate and test new agriculture technology and farm practices, to preserve water and power resources, lower operating costs and increase yield.

If an idea graduates the program after extensive testing, it is then rolled out throughout all of the Integrated Ag farm portfolio.

The program is currently yielding remarkable results.
