With deep roots in agriculture dating back to 1827, International Farming is a privately owned institutional investment manager at the center of the world’s food ecosystem. Valuing integrity, ingenuity, and grit, we are committed to growing a stronger, more transparent food economy.
We are macro thinkers who diligently execute on the micro level. Believing that constant evolution is essential to growth, we solve problems for today while creating future-facing systems and scalable businesses that will stand the test of time.
We have the discipline to ask hard questions and put in the time and research required to understand the ever-evolving food market. The knowledge that follows gives us the confidence to take positions that are not always self-evident. Thus, we are able to find value where others do not and are not afraid to go against the grain.
While respecting the wisdom of the past, we are not confined by what has always been. Instead, when something no longer works or we see a better way, we roll up our sleeves and get to work.
Agriculture is not just a career path for us—it’s our way of life. Understanding this, farmers want to work with us because they know we respect the wisdom they hold, and landowners sell to us because we know how big of a decision that is. We aren’t finance people who have recently decided to get into farming. We are Farmers with Capital.

In treating all people with dignity and respect—whether they are longtime partners or people we will interact with once.
In seeing service not as a moralistic obligation, but rather one of life’s greatest privileges.
That doing the right thing is always the right thing to do.
In open-mindedness and frank discussion over blind obedience and herd mentality.
In big ideas and strategically laying the groundwork to make them a reality.
That “business as usual” is not the answer and that good can always be made better through collaboration and communication.
In patience and perseverance.
In how gratifying hard work is, and that determination and effort always pay off.
That there are no finer or grittier people in the world than farmers.
We believe that a healthy farm system leads to a healthy food supply, and that investing in farmers and technology helps the planet thrive. Taking a holistic approach to agriculture, we seek to generate positive, risk-adjusted returns for our partners.
