Agisle ranch shares are contract-based, asset-backed, and cash-yielding. Investors will have direct ownership in the underlying real estate of an operating ranch. An LLC agreement legally binds shareholders to the land title of the working cattle ranch.
Agisle is led by fifth-generation cattle ranchers who are industry leaders. Investors have peace of mind knowing their land is managed by experienced operators with a proven track record of creating value through land management.
Agisle specializes in low-input, native grasslands suited for livestock grazing. We avoid expensive row crop farmland. The result is better value, less risk, and more asymmetric returns.
Larger, commercially-viable land tracts tend to be more affordable on a per-acre basis than, say, a 50-acre homestead. The pooling of capital opens up better risk-adjusted opportunities for investors.
- Investors own the land, not livestock
- No management fees
- No capital calls
US ranch & farmlands’ best returns have come during periods of high inflation: From 1970 to 1980, these assets appreciated more than +14% annually.
During the 2008-09 Great Financial Crisis, ranchland values fell just -2.8% — the only year-over-year decline of the last 25 years.
Since 1997, ranchland has delivered a +5.2% annualized return with a 6.5% annual volatility. The S&P500 has returned +5.7% annually with a volatility of 17.9%. Ranchland offers similar returns to US equites with a fraction of the risk.
Native ecosystems are our specialty and passion. Agisle offers land best-suited to regenerative livestock grazing. We avoid row crop farmland and the costly and harmful inputs they require, such as chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides, GMOs, diesel, and heavy machinery. The result is less risk, lower overhead, and better value, all achieved with positive environmental impact.
Agisle's founders have a multi-generational history of purchasing, developing, and operating cattle ranches. We have the experience to identify the very best land opportunities. Our team aligns every property with an experienced, family-based ranching operation.
The USA loses 3% of its ranchland and farmland to development every year. It’s time to slow that trend. Agisle ensures that one of America’s greatest assets, native grassland, is preserved. Ranchland values should continue to appreciate due to limited supply, rising food prices, but also powerful value drivers.
Ranching is a rare production system where profitability and sustainability align to perfection. What’s best for healthy, grass-fed cattle is precisely what benefits the land and eventually flows to the bottom line.
High-density, rotational livestock grazing improves the nutrient density, microbial diversity, and carbon-storing capacity of the soil. Healthier soils, in turn, preserve perennial grasses, plant diversity, and delicate wildlife ecosystems, while staving off desertification and dustbowls.
