A growing number of investors are entering the market for sustainable agricultural commodities to enhance hard asset holdings within their portfolios. Agriculture is the world's largest industry. It employs over one billion people and generates over 1.3 trillion dollars worth of food annually.


Ethically produced food products are experiencing a rapid rise in demand, and therefore the need for sustainable farming projects are more significant than ever. Consumers are growing ever more conscious of how their food is produced, and this is reflected by the attitudes of the major supermarkets and a significant rise of localised organic food shops and restaurants.


At Hedgerow Group, we can facilitate institutional acquisitions of agricultural-based commodities such as arable farmland, along with ecological livestock farming operations.
