We’ve built the deal we wish we had.

Area One Farms was formed out of a personal desire to create new options for farmers in Canada.

Company Info

What we Do

At Area One Farms, we do two things well; Farming and Finance. Our strength as a company is rooted in our deep understanding of the fundamentals of agriculture and the knowledge of equity, investments, and the ability to capitalize on valuable opportunities. We recognize the potential, we see the value, we understand how to get there and we know the risks.

Area One Farms bridges the gap between agriculture and equity – helping quality Canadian farmers expand their operations in a stable, committed partnership with investors. Within each equity partnership, we also help farm partners adopt farm management principles and practices that help raise the effectiveness and efficiency of farming operations, increasing their land productivity and overall profitability.

We currently have farm partnerships in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Ontario. As each farm is unique, we design partnerships as joint ventures to suit and support the financial and operational goals of each operation.

Our Approach

Agriculture is a singular industry. Each and every farmer is unique and has to build their business based on a number of factors, including family interest, available labour, profitability of their land and size of their farm. Farmers are entrepreneurs that have to be adept in a diverse range of skillsets, biology, logistics, asset management and marketing. The rewards for farming can be great but the business requires long hours, the wearing of many hats, a high tolerance for risk and deep passion.

Growing

We know that agricultures true value is found where farmers are involved in the long-term, intergenerational success of their farm. While farmers often want to expand and grow their farm for the next generation, and have the capacity to do so, access to capital often limits the possibility to make this a reality. 

At Area One Farms we bring growth and this long-term mindset together with a joint venture where farmers are owners. We believe that this ownership drives investment in the success of their business and results in a win-win for all stakeholders.

We understand farming because we are farmers ourselves. We understand the pressures, the challenges, the excitement and the long-term impact brought with farm expansion. Let us show you a unique way to expand without undue risk.
