TOPIC – Highland has apparently sold its land to a farming corporation that is promising to continue farming in Melancthon.
INFO – OTTAWA, Canada, July 16, 2013 – Bonnefield Financial today announced an initial closing of its third investment partnership, Bonnefield Canadian Farmland LP III (“LP III”). LP III received various commitments totaling $100,000,000 from Canadian investors and more capital may be raised in subsequent closings to a maximum of $200,000,000.
Coincident with the closing of LP III, Bonnefield used a portion of the funding to complete one of the largest farmland transactions in Canadian history, the acquisition from the Highland Companies of over 6,500 acres of farmland located in Dufferin County, Ontario. The high-quality land, predominantly used for potato production, is located in the highlands of the Niagara escarpment a 90-minute drive north of Toronto. With its purchase by LP III, the land will continue to be farmed by local farmers.
