In this week's North American Ag Spotlight Chrissy Wozniak talks to Chris Morris of LandFund Partners about what they offer producers and investors in the Mississippi River Valley, creating new options for farm succession and farm management.
LandFund Partners (LFP) is a farmland investment company focused on buying and managing high quality farmland in the Mississippi River Valley. The land is leased to preferred family farm operators throughout the region. Founded back in 2013 by John Farris and Chris Morris, LFP now owns over 35,000 acres across the Delta. LFP seeks to utilize regenerative farming techniques on its farms and works alongside its farming partners to do what's best for the soils and the environment.
Chris Morris is a founding member of LandFund Partners where he serves as President and COO. Chris grew up in a rural community in Kentucky where he was around and exposed to farming at an early age. Mr. Morris received his Bachelor of Science degree in Financial Economics from Centre College, in Danville, KY, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa, magna cum laude. While at Center, Chris studied investment theory and alternative investments, which lead him to identifying farmland as an excellent asset to compliment the typical stock and bond portfolio. Mr. Morris started his career at Commonwealth Economics, a regional economic and financial consultancy. Mr. Morris has been recognized as one of Nashville’s Top 40 Under 40 by the Nashville Business Journal and Top 30 Under 30 by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. He is active in the Nashville non-profit community and is a past Chairman of the Phoenix Club of Nashville. Mr. Morris has attained the Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA) designation.
