Money may not grow on trees…
But it can grow under them…
In the form of one of the most in-demand luxury foods in the world…
You may never have tasted one…
You may have no interest in ever sniffing one (no, it’s not that kind of mushroom… it’s its fragrance that marks this tuber out to truffle hunters)…
But that’s not the point here…
The point is that truffles are in high demand by fine diners the world over… and supply is nowhere close to meeting demand… which means exorbitant prices…
Today’s chefs will pay as much as US$2,500 a kilo… or US$30 to US$75 per truffle.
In recent years, the largest truffles have fetched as much as US$330,000 at auction.
To put this in perspective, that’s the same starting price as a brand-new Ferrari 599GTB Fiorano.
Who wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of those kinds of profits?
Over the past 15 years, in the United States alone, the truffle market has grown from US$4 million to US$30 million. And, according to a recent USA Today article, experts believe that in the next few years this aromatic fungus could turn into a US$6 billion global business.
But what’s up with the supply chain?…
Can’t We Just Farm More Truffles?
Truffles can grow under the roots of certain trees. But they are not easy to produce.
Not only do you need the right climate conditions, but too many competing fungi in the ground can threaten a truffle harvest. Southern and Central Europe has the upper hand on climate. But even then, you can’t depend on Mother Nature alone…
Spain, for instance, is responsible for 38% of black Périgord truffle production. But, in the 2012–2013 season, Spain had a no-show of truffles. Anybody else in the world who could find a black Périgord (aka “black diamond”) was paid double the previous season’s price.
So, to begin to scratch the surface of this rising global demand, you can’t rely on wild-grown truffles.
That’s not what we’re here to talk about today.
Nor are we bothered with the cheap Asian-produced truffles that have made their way into the market—only to be frowned upon by the higher echelons of European society for the “doping” involved to make the truffles smell like the real thing.
Instead, you have the opportunity, right now, to invest in a Europe-based plantation that’s focused on providing the right conditions (along with rigorous monitoring to maintain those conditions) to produce hectare after hectare of high-quality black Périgord truffles… yielding you a total return on investment of as much as 1,525%.
You may remember this truffle opportunity from a previous alert. Or you may have been in the room as Martin—one of the plantation’s partners—gave an overview of his latest plans at last month’s Offshore Wealth Summit in Panama City. But I wanted to bring it to your attention again today because we’re approaching the closing date to get in on this year’s planting.
Before we get into the numbers, here are a few important things to understand about this truffle plantation…
- Top truffle location. The world’s top restaurants look to Europe for the best-tasting truffles. France, Italy, and Spain sit among the top 10 truffle-growing nations, and this plantation we’re working with is based in Spain’s Murcia region.
- Owners have put their own money on the line. The two business partners behind this plantation own the farmland (there’s nobody to push them out—and they’re not depending on private investors to fund land acquisition). Understanding the value of the truffle industry—and the quality of the operation they’ve installed—they’re holding back 90% of the plantation to themselves. That, of course, means limited inventory for private investors like you. The upside is that these guys are committed for the long term. They want and need the place to succeed.
- Ongoing R&D. The 10% of the plantation that the farm owners sell to private investors is to help them fund their research and development team. These scientists work to ensure the highest standards… and that the latest technologies can be used to encourage a plentiful, quality crop.
Get Started With As Little As 50 Trees—And A Limited-Time Discount
This isn’t a traditional real estate investment. This isn’t a land investment. This is a chance to diversify into an agri-investment where you become the owner of a set of trees… and, eventually, owner of the truffles that all the farming around those trees works hard to produce.
You will never have to plant a tree… or dig for truffles. After your one-time payment, you sit back and wait for your profits… year after year.
The life cycle of this truffle investment is 30 years.
Cash flow starts as early as year 3 and is projected to grow over time to as much as a 50% annual yield by year 15… and continuing at that level for the next 15 years.
Of course, the more trees you buy, the more you have to gain, but to give you an example…
Buying into a half-acre (that’s 100 trees) costs US$51,563 today (including a limited US$2,000 discount).
Your total profit over 30 years is US$601,020 (a Ferrari in your garage, plus a chunk of change in your pocket)… representing a 1,066% return of investment. Assuming zero payouts in the first couple of years (with the first payout coming in year 3), your IRR is 16%.
Normally, to get a slice of this truffle plantation action, investors must buy a minimum of 100 trees. But, for a limited time, our readers have an exclusive opportunity to buy 50 trees at the lower entry price of US$30,655—which includes a US$1,500 discount.
This number of smaller, 1/8-acre parcels—usually only made available to conference attendees—is strictly limited and available on a first-come/first-served basis. It may never be repeated outside (or even inside) conference circles again…
Get In Now To Receive Your First Payout In 2022
The end of November is when the farm managers begin planting their trees.
This means that right now is your last chance to invest in time for your trees to be included in this coming planting season. Otherwise, your saplings must wait until next year… and it will be four years from now (rather than three) when you start seeing your truffle returns.
