  • Partner Spotlight: Bill Niman of BN Ranch

    About the Partner Spotlight:  This is the first of a regular series highlighting the farmers we work with. We’re starting with Bill Niman in part because BN Ranch is in the news now, and we thought you would appreciate some insight into what is going on. We at Farmland LP have an up-close view, as BN Ranch is not just a Farmer Partner/tenant, but Bill is also an advisor, and I (Craig) serve on the board of BN Ranch and am an investor. We are biased, but in the very best of ways.  Farmland LP and BN Ranch share a common vision for a healthy, humane, environmentally regenerative and high quality food system. Our separate-but-supportive, value-aligned relationship helps each of us scale-up as we transform the food system.

At the same time, he’s found a way to scale what had traditionally been a small-scale, diversified farm model into something that’s attractive to investors.”
