I love the idea of owning farmland. You can earn solid income... Plus, that income can keep up with inflation.
The thing is, I don't know how to buy it correctly. Gladstone Land (LAND) does.
Gladstone Land owns more than 67,000 acres of U.S. farmland worth $558 million... As of its latest financial report, its land value is $13.57 per share (in net asset value).
The company owns 79 farms in nine states... So it offers you a diversified portfolio of farmland, both geographically and across a variety of crops.
That all sounds good so far.
And it gets better...
