Episode 37: Interview with Dr Jason Bradford Managing Partner of Farmland LP
Farmland LP acquires conventional farmland and converts it to organic, sustainable farmland, in a structure similar to a private farmland REIT
Jason leads farmland management for Farmland LP, including crop rotation planning, organic certification, sustainability planning, operations management, and working with farmer tenant/partners.

In this interview, Jason talks about:
- Farmland’s approach to sustainability
- The pressures on conventional farming
- How Farmland’s closed-loop system increases efficiency, reduces expenses and is more productive.
