    Default Fquare: Crowd sourcing farmland?

    Novel idea... (audio at site) No properties up yet.

    http://harvestpublicmedia.org/conten...can-join-crowd

    The new company Fquareis bringing crowd-sourcing to the increasingly lucrative market of investing in farmland.

    Here’s how it works: On the Fquare website, an investor can purchase a share of a farmer’s land. If enough investors pool their money to buy the whole parcel, they become the new landowners and the farmer becomes the tenant on the land. The farmer gets a three-, five- or seven-year lease to work the land, and the landowners make up to 6 percent annual interest for the length of the lease. When the lease is up, Fquare sells that same farm to a new group of investors.

    This month, Fquare hopes to fund its first farm. In a busy New York restaurant around the corner from where the company is based, I chatted with the company’s founder, Charles Polanco. He said buying farmland through Fquare was easy, akin to purchasing a share of a mom-and-pop pizza parlor.
