We help farmers succeed.
SAMC is driven by experience and deep expertise in Canadian agriculture. The mission of SAMC is: “Sharing our passion for agriculture by combining our management expertise and experience with committed partners.” This passion comes from over 40 years of combined agricultural experience, which began by growing up on farms in Western Canada. From these roots we have developed a true love for agriculture and through SAMC are working with farms and investors to allow for successful land investment and succession of assets for Canadian farms.
SAMC’s Core Values are: Accountability, Effective & Regular Communication, Integrity and a Results-Based Fee Structure

Because We’re Different..
SAMC is made up of a group of experienced agriculture industry professionals who understand farming and the reality of farmland succession….because we are farmers too.
At the same time land is an increasingly important investment strategy for people around the world looking for opportunities to diversify. With the uncertainty of equity markets, diversification of investments into other markets like farmland is attractive to fund managers, whether they are responsible for pension funds, private funds, or family owned investment funds. This situation is real and not going to change; those with money want to invest into land and they will find ways to do so.
The difference with SAMC is we understand and care for a different aspect of farmland investment, our fifth pillar: the farm community. Farm communities are the lifeblood of rural life in Canada. The local hockey rink. The local 4-H club. People to work in the restaurants, gas stations, hotels, and other businesses that keep small towns going. SAMC’s approach to farmland investment includes the flow of value back into the community because that is where the true value can be leveraged.
