Farmland Sale May Be One of the Biggest in a Region Experiencing Rising Demand.
Burlington, CO — Savant Investment Partners (formerly Savant Equity Group) has announced the sale offering of a large assemblage of prime farmland available in the eastern Colorado and western Kansas region.
Hudye Farms U.S. Inc., the seller, owns 17,687 acres of high quality farmland largely situated around Burlington, Colorado in Kit Carson and Cheyenne Counties. Other tracts are located just across the Colorado-Kansas state line in Sherman and Wallace Counties near Goodland, Kansas and Logan County, Kansas near Winona. Of the total acres, approximately 1840 acres are irrigated with water rights and wells.
“Demand for farmland, a commodity producing hard asset with an income stream, continues to grow,” says Jordan Wirsz, CEO of Savant Investment Partners and Vice President of Hudye Farms U.S. Inc. “Institutions, pensions, and hedge funds are paying more and more attention to what is arguably the most valuable commodity in the world. Most CIOs look at farmland as an inflation hedge with a dividend.”
Wall Street executives and fund managers aren’t the only people paying attention to farmland. In fact many wealthy individuals are flocking to the asset class. According to reports famous investors and many others are reportedly buying as much farmland as they can get their hands on.
This sale offers an opportunity to obtain a very large block of producing farmland in one single transaction along with a viable low maintenance business model which is already in place. Wirsz added, “The process of assembling farmland and optimizing its use has already been done—the buyer will be able to immediately step into an operating, profitable and very sizable farmland investment.”
Hudye Farms U.S. Inc. currently has four tenants farming the land for them, with crop/share agreements that generate sizable returns to the company, according to Wirsz. “Although a buyer could terminate those leases upon closing and farm the land themselves, the current lease structure likely makes this asset even more attractive to potential buyers—given the extremely small amount of management needed to continue profitable operations.”
