We address the need for mid-priced workforce homes in the Heartland by addressing one of the core challenges – access to early-stage capital for new residential developments.

With our expertise in farmland investing, land development, and structured asset sales and finance, we help maximize returns and minimize downside exposure for our project investors, local developers, and builders.

What We Do

Funding the Entitlement Process

Invest in Farmland Costs

Invest in Farmland

We raise early-stage capital to buy farmland by working with farmers to create the best outcome for their land and their families,  near smaller but growing Midwest towns.


Invest in Entitlement Process Expenses

Partner with Local Developer

We work with a local developer to entitle the land for a “Highland Community” project.


Sell for a Multiple of Total Investment

Sell the Project in 1-3 Years

Prior to construction beginning, we sell to a national/regional builder that was involved in the process.



  • Income-producing farmland

  • Land with nearby utility and city services

  • Meeting HCF underwriting criteria


  • Locations with a vetted local developer

  • Near smaller cities and towns in the Midwest

  • A recognized current shortage of mid-priced homes and neighborhoods, with projected job growth in the region over the next 2-4 years

  • Local Municipality/Politicians that are supportive of housing growth

  • Local community that is signaling support for new homes.


  • Planned communities that are smaller, walkable and pedestrian scale, generationally diverse, and environmentally sensitive.

  • Smaller lot sizes

  • Environmentally focused, including solar where appropriate

  • Focus on the use of outdoor space including green space, community space, sidewalks, and home porches

Location Criteria

Project Example / Case Study

Madison Meadows

State: Ohio 

Status: Complete

Initial investment date: May 2020
