Create a New Asset Class. Feed the Planet. Fight Climate Change.
Alongside a changing climate, the global population continues to grow, with expectations of reaching 9.7 billion by 2050. This means approximately 70% more food will be required than is consumed today. With increasing food production needs and decreasing land suitable for cultivation, the world is facing a threat to global food security.
Simultaneously, studies show that the global food system accounts for between 11 and 19 billion tons of emissions per year, or a third of global emissions. This makes agriculture a critical contributor – and solution – in the fight against climate change.
In order to navigate scarce natural resources, keep up with the needs of a growing population, and reduce agriculture's footprint, farmers are looking to climate-smart approaches more than ever before.
FarmTogether's mission is to bring creative and transformative capital to natural assets, starting with U.S. farmland. By driving abundant and creative capital to farmers, we’re giving investors the opportunity to drive agriculture toward sustainability on a massive scale.
This is a unique opportunity to be a part of a mission-driven company dedicated to environmental longevity and prosperity for all while opening up vital asset classes for all investors.
The Farmland Manager (Northern CA-based, remote) will work closely with the Acquisitions Team, the Farm Management Team and our Farm Operators to ensure that our farm and ranch assets are performing optimally. This role requires an in-depth knowledge of permanent crop farming operations, farm budgeting and operations, regulatory compliance and financial reporting requirements.
In addition to the day-to-day responsibilities of managing our farmland portfolio, this role will also be responsible for building out transparent and repeatable systems and processes that will allow the function to scale.
