EasyKnock today announced the relaunch of FarmlandFinder, an online sale-leaseback platform for farmland.
The new FarmlandFinder platform will exclusively offer sale-leasebacks to farmers and can help them achieve goals such as strengthening balance sheets, funding operations, eliminating debt, and buying more land.
“As a fifth-generation dairy farmer, I have seen firsthand the difficult situations created when farmers are unable to access their land’s equity. We are proud to launch this program that I know will be a welcome solution for many U.S. farmers,” said Steven Brockshus, FarmlandFinder’s founder and current VP of EasyKnock in a release.
Originally launched in 2016, FarmlandFinderr allows farmers to access the equity in their land by purchasing the land and renting it back to the farmer. Farmers have the option to repurchase their land at any time during the term of their lease, or to direct FarmlandFinder to sell it to a third party.
EasyKnock acquired certain assets of FarmlandFinder in August 2021. The innovative sale-leaseback program aims to provide farmers with the opportunity to convert their land’s equity while maintaining operations.
“We are committed to serving U.S. farmers, the foundation upon which our whole country grows. Our goal is to help American farmers achieve financial freedom with our new program. We’re on an important mission to help them access the resources they need in both good times and bad,” said Jarred Kessler, EasyKnock co-founder and CEO.
