We talk with Chris Rawley, the CEO of HarvestReturns.com
—an online platform launched in 2017 to raise capital for small to medium-size operators in private investments in production farming.
Harvest Returns is a new way for farmers, ranchers, and landowners to raise capital without putting their farms at risk by over-leveraging with debt.
Chris, who is currently a Captain in the U.S. Navy Reserve, has invested in real estate and income-producing agriculture for nearly two decades. He conceived the idea to combine online investing, equity crowdfunding with passive investments in production agriculture a few years ago while visiting a farm investment in Central America.
With the vision of making agriculture investing an easier process, Chris founded Harvest Returns with his COO, Austin Maness, to bring that vision to reality.
