About Us

Founded in 2013, Tiverton is an Ag-only, investment advisor whose partners collectively have over 125 Years operating and investing experience in the agriculture sector.

We’re passionate about Advancing Agriculture: Agronomically, Financially and Environmentally throughout the United States and abroad.

Agronomically

Tiverton’s team is comprised of leading professionals with deep agronomic and financial experience in direct farming, farm management, brokerage, and investing.

We directly farm over 35,000 acres. We farm manage 100,000+ acres across 8 states. We’ve grown over 15 different crop types. We’ve financed over 40 crop types and 3 livestock types.

Financially

Tiverton and its affiliates have executed agricultural transactions totaling over $1.2 billion.

We partner with farmers to improve their bottom line, balance sheet and cash flow – we typically increase cash flow margins by 10-20%+.

Environmentally

We’re faithful and conscientious stewards of farming’s legacy.

On each investment we look for ways to reduce Ag’s footprint in a financially responsible manner: saved inputs, cover crops, reduced methane emissions, animal health and wellness, carbon capture. Each has a place on the farm!
