(FBN®), the leading direct-to-farm ag tech platform and farmer network, today announced the launch of Farmland Capital, a unique farmer-friendly financing co-investment option from FBN Finance.

Another 37% of farmers want to buy new farmland in the next year, while 30% are looking to transition their land to take advantage of carbon payment programs, with another 13% looking to transition to regenerative ag, and 9% want to transition to an organic operation.

FBN Finance invests in a slice of the farm’s equity as a passive minority partner, paying farmers cash today for a share of the farm’s future appreciation. There is no interest or rent payments to FBN Finance, giving farmers a path to full ownership of the land without the burden of debt.
