Matt, there's an investment company doing pretty much that looking for organic farmers to operate for them. They buy the land, provide inputs, and manage marketing. "Tenant" provides equipment, labor, and gets a share of the net profit. It's probably coming to the conventional world soon. Not much different than hogs.
Talking and doing are 2 different things.
Their business plan has 2 fatal flaws:
1. Promising above market returns to investors.
2. Undervaluing the management skills necessary to farm 1000 organic acres and overestimating the pool of available people to do so.
