from Sovereign Man:
It seems these days I spend at least 50% of my time looking at farms for sale in Chile. And with good reason.
I’ve written before at length why agriculture seems like the no-brainer investment of the decade: given the fundamentals of supply and demand, the absolute best-case scenario is rising food prices. The worst-case scenario is shortages.
Owning farmland is comparable to owning physical gold. And I’m buying as much of it as I can, specifically in Chile.
Farmland in Chile is incredibly rich. It’s like Iowa meets California, but at a fraction of the cost.Highly productive farmland here runs anywhere between $2,000 per acre and $6,500 per acre. By comparison, farmland in Iowa and California can cost $10,000 to $12,000 per acre for similar quality.
