Everyone! We have investors from all around the world. Plant a tree and join the team!
The minimum investment is one tree (100$).
We accept credit card payments, PayPal, and bank transfers.
The walnut fund collects capital from investors all over the world and in turn uses the funds raised to establish modern, high yielding walnut plantations. We plant the trees, take care of them and sell the walnuts. Profits made are then proportionally divided between the walnut fund and its investors.
Payouts are made once a year, following the annual harvest.
Payouts are calculated as follows:
Annual payout = (Revenue from walnut sales – Costs) x (Number of trees you own/total number of trees in the plantation)
Even if your trees are doing poorly, your payout is secure because it is calculated on an ownership percentage of the whole plantation, not by tree.
Annual payout: Amount paid to investors on a yearly basis
Revenue from walnut sales: Yield x walnut price
Costs: Direct costs of running the plantation E.g. labor, fertilizer, utilities, storage etc.
We offer several options:
– Wire transfer

Six years for a complete ROI is equal to 16% return annually. Furthermore, in the following years annual returns continue to grow reaching a year by year ROI of up to 80%.
The return on investment (ROI) period is between 5 and 6 years. By year six we estimate that you will have 100-130% of what you have invested. With current market conditions every following year you can expect an additional 50-80% return on investment.

If you have decided to change your mind refunds are available from December to the end of June. Unfortunately, if your trees have already been planted refunds are not available. Nevertheless, we are hard at work setting up a system so that investors can sell their already planted trees to other interested investors. This will prove beneficial to both parties. Investors looking to leave will be able to cash out with a profit (the more mature the tree, the more valuable it is), and new investors will be able to buy trees that are closer to maturity or are already making money.
Our first plantations were set up in California. Since then we have gone international and now our plantations can be found in various countries throughout South Eastern Europe.
South East Europe provides an ideal environment for walnut farming. Climate conditions are ideal, the land is inexpensive, government subsidies are readily available and the workforce is much cheaper than the US. We would have to charge 3-4 times more for each walnut tree if we were to plant them in the USA.
Trees are planted once a year between the months of October and November. The exact time depends on the weather conditions.
Don’t worry, a new tree will be replanted as soon as possible at our cost. Thanks to the payout system (See question/answer 6) you will not experience any setbacks in receiving profit.
After your initial investment of 100$ per tree there are no fees. When your walnut trees begin to make money, you are paid back first and from then on profits are split equally between the walnut fund and its investors.
Historically walnut trees have proven to be a very secure investment. Walnut trees are resistant to pests, disease and harsh climate. A worst case scenario would present itself as a major natural disaster. However, by carefully electing our plantation locations we have yet to encounter any problems of this sort. Additionally, all of our plantations are insured and if something were to happen settlements would be payed out to investors.
