47. Transforming Agriculture: One Deal At A Time with Garrott McClintock

My Guest today is Garrott McClintock. Garrott is the COO of AcreTrader. AcreTrader is a hot new start-up out of Fayetteville, Arkansas, that recently finished a series its 12 Million Dollar funding round. AcreTrader matches investors with farmland while giving Farmers the land they need to grow their operation.

Did you know that In 1935, there were 7 million farms, and now there are only 2 million in operation?

What’s changed? Why is farming so hard? What is often hard for farmers to grow their operations? What’s the fulfillment a farmer feels by growing the crops that drive our world today?

I had a great time talking with my long-time friend Garrott McClintock. Garrott is a 5th generation farmer, and I wanted to have him on this show where you’ll hear the following:

  • What’s in the DNA of a Farmer? The fulfillment they feel with the work they do
  • The non-linear path his own career has taken
  • The barriers he and his team break down
  • The future of farming- growing demand, decrease acreage, and lower number of farmers
  • And More!


Please enjoy this week’s conversation with Garrott McClintock!
