"We are pleased to have RAC as a tenant as it further diversifies our tenant base," said Bill Frisbie, Principal of the Company's investment adviser.  "This is the first of many farmland acquisitions we expect in Oregon and is part of our strategy of geographic diversification across the United States.  We now own fourteen farms comprised of an aggregate of 1,959 acres located across four states and six growing areas that produce a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables."
