Brazilian Farmland Investments

Reconciling Environmental Preservation with Agriculture Development
a white paper by Matthew Kruse, CEO of Genesis Investimentos

I grew up on my family’s farm surrounding Royal, Iowa, nearly 200 miles northwest of Des Moines. Royal is your typical farm community, boasting a population of less than 500 people. I am proud to be a 5th generation farmer. In 2012, together with my 83-year-old grandfather, I visited the farm in Denmark that my great-great grandfather, Knud Christensen, immigrated from in the late nineteenth century. Knud was intent to strike out on his own. He met up with other members of his family who had already settled in the new country. He made great sacrifices for a better future. His mother stayed behind in Denmark, and while he often wrote her, he never saw her again.
