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.

He is a highly-regarded scientist and expert in sustainability who applied his understanding of ecology to become an organic farmer and then the integrated pastured-livestock and crop rotation model used on land managed by Farmland

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.
  • Farmland’s distinct approach to crop rotation
  •  How financial investors view organic farming
