About Us


It’s Great to Meet You

At Ranch Investor, we believe creating opportunities for passive investing in large western ranches will make ranch investing more fulfilling, and accessible. That’s why we offer Direct Participation Programs or accredited investors who join as Limited Partners.

By utilizing our team with experience in agricultural management, finance, brokerage, appraisal, and production, we’re able to offer a simplified and streamlined path to ranch ownership.

Services Provided

Back-office Management

Ranch Investor provides comprehensive back-office services, including settlements, record maintenance, regulatory compliance, accounting, and IT support to ensure smooth operations and compliance for ranch owners.

Recreational Benefits Administration

Ranch Investor handles the distribution of exclusive recreational benefits to Limited Partners, enhancing their investment experience and providing unique opportunities for enjoyment.


Our experienced team offers Lease and Revenue Development, pasture monitoring, project management, and accounting services to optimize the value and profitability of ranch properties.

What We're Here to Accomplish

Ranch Investor aims to democratize ranch ownership, allowing investors to access the benefits of generational ranchers. Through ownership syndication, we seek to broaden opportunities and mitigate risk, making ranch investing inclusive for those who share our vision.

Through ownership syndication, we aim to expand opportunities and lower risk, democratizing ranch investing for like-minded individuals. Our objective is to grant the average American access to financial and experiential gains from an asset historically restricted to the affluent.


We strive to play a pivotal role in changing the traditional paradigms of wealth concentration by creating an investment landscape that integrates community, culture, environment, and economic gains.
