Why invest in the Agro Fund

Agriculture is a stable sector that is virtually uncorrelated with the economic cycle and is very resilient in times of crisis.
Agriculture is profitable in the long term, mainly thanks to subsidies from national and European budgets and national efforts towards food self-sufficiency.
Agricultural land prices rise with inflation, offering investors protection even in times of high inflation.
Rising commodity prices have a positive impact on farm revenues and increase their profitability.
The founders invested more than 
EUR 4 million in the fund and they are ready to further increase the investment in the future.
On our farms, we focus on animal welfare and respect for the landscape.
