AcreTrader is Showing Us How to Diversify Your Portfolio While Supporting A Farmer Right Here in Northwest Arkansas

About the Show:

One of the things we’ve found doing this podcast is that Northwest Arkansas has plenty of room for economic growth. We live in the shadows of some large and iconic companies, but this area of the “Heartland” is also home to entrepreneurial development. 

We often think of this type of growth happening in bigger cities on the coast somewhere or in Silicon Valley. But this entrepreneurial growth and development are happening right here in Northwest Arkansas, and if you happen to live in this part of the country, you are witnessing it. Our guests on this podcast episode are a perfect example of how start-up growth and ingenuity can happen at a high level right here in Northwest Arkansas. 

AcreTrader is a company harnessing the asset class of Farmland in new and unique ways. What was once the focus of larger companies and investment groups has now been brought into the mainstream investment space where individuals can “invest directly in farmland and support the business of farming. ” 

Carter Malloy, CEO, and Garrott McClintock, COO, sit down with us to share the origins story of AcreTrader. They both grew up on and around farms, and how that experience informed their venture to marry Agriculture and Land together in service and product that leverages technology and investment opportunities for both Main Street and Wall Street. 

All this and more on this episode of I am Northwest Arkansas.
