About - Walnut Fund

About the Walnut Fund

It all started with four friends that were passionate about agriculture and had an idea to co-invest in a walnut plantation.
Thinking hard and long about the idea, we came up with a better one! Why not expand the amazing opportunity to people worldwide, a so-called “walnut cloud farming” model that lets agriculture enthusiasts and investors alike join in on the action.
Thus, The Walnut Fund was born!

Walnut plantations

Walnut plantations have shown to be a worthwhile investment opportunity. With the first harvest at year four vegetation, this tree can economically produce walnuts for the next 40+ years.
Not only do our plantations provide a steady and secure source of passive income, but the trees themselves also attribute greatly to the environment and ecosystem. Following many sleepless nights calculating and analyzing, the walnut fund has come up with not only a sustainable yet highly profitable investment model.
Based on an average 135$ price tag per tree, The Walnut Fund can effectively execute all of the necessary steps needed to establish and maintain a production-intense walnut plantation.

Walnut plantations

Once the plantation becomes self-sustainable – Year 4, the profits are first used to reimburse investors, and only then does the walnut fund begin taking its share of the profits. Backed by a team of renowned experts in the fields of agriculture, food quality, business, marketing, and planning that have solidified their careers working with walnut plantations, we can say that we have a team that will make any future plantation a success!

Why walnuts?

Historically walnuts have always been in high demand and short supply

Due to the three-year waiting period before first harvest, farmers are reluctant to plant this nut-bearing tree. With walnut demand growing on a yearly basis and a stable supply, the market price of walnuts is very consistent.

Steady price throughout the year

The advantage with walnuts is that they are not perishable. The price of any commodity fluctuates throughout the year with regard to supply and demand. Within their shell walnuts can stay up to 20 months. This allows us to sell when the price is at a maximum. Additionally there are no losses during transport or warehousing.

Harvesting is completely mechanized

Walnut harvesting is done mechanically. This is an enormous advantage as labor costs are minimized and profits remain unaffected.

Walnuts are very resistant to pests

In comparison to other fruit-bearing trees the walnut is very resistant to pests, disease and natural elements. Walnuts are considered one of the safest and most reliable farmable goods.

Walnuts have many uses and are not dependent of only one industry

Here is a brief summary of the many uses for walnuts: The bulk of walnuts are used in the production of walnut oil. Walnuts are abundantly used in the cosmetic industry. Walnut is regarded as some of the highest quality and most expensive wood stock. Trees have sold for as much as ten thousand dollars! Walnut shells can be used to produce high quality heating pellet.

Minimal risk of frost damage

Walnut trees bloom late and there is minimal risk of frost damage to the nuts and flowers. Walnut trees do not depend on honeybees as they are wind pollinated by pollinizer trees.
