How it works

Buy & own real profit-earning assets

Crowdfarming™ is a simple way to help anyone buy & own real profit-earning assets, helping farmers grow and maintain assets until ready for market.

1

You buy the young asset (livestock or plant-based) from the farmer, through Livestock Wealth.
2

The asset grows in the farmers care.

The farmer buys back the asset once it has fully grown at harvest. You, the investor, make a profit from the sale.
