GLADSTONE LAND CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)
NOTE 1. BUSINESS AND ORGANIZATION
Business and Organization
Gladstone Land Corporation (“we,” “us,” or the “Company”) is an agricultural real estate investment trust (“REIT”) that was re-incorporated in Maryland on March 24, 2011, having been originally incorporated in California on June 14, 1997. We are primarily in the business of owning and leasing farmland, and we conduct substantially all of our operations through a subsidiary, Gladstone Land Limited Partnership (the “Operating Partnership”), a Delaware limited partnership. As we currently control the sole general partner of the Operating Partnership and own, directly or indirectly, a majority of the common units of limited partnership interest in the Operating Partnership (“OP Units”), the financial position and results of operations of the Operating Partnership are consolidated within our financial statements. As of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company owned approximately 99.3% and 100.0%, respectively, of the outstanding OP Units (see Note 8, “Equity,” for additional discussion regarding OP Units).
Gladstone Land Advisers, Inc. (“Land Advisers”), a Delaware corporation and a subsidiary of ours, was created to collect any non-qualifying income related to our real estate portfolio and to perform certain small-scale farming business operations. We have elected for Land Advisers to be taxed as a taxable REIT subsidiary (“TRS”) of ours. Since we currently own 100% of the voting securities of Land Advisers, its financial position and results of operations are consolidated within our financial statements. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, and for the tax year ended December 31, 2020, there was no taxable income or loss from Land Advisers, nor did we have any undistributed REIT taxable income.
Subject to certain restrictions and limitations, and pursuant to contractual agreements, our business is managed by Gladstone Management Corporation (the “Adviser”), a Delaware corporation, and administrative services are provided to us by Gladstone Administration, LLC (the “Administrator”), a Delaware limited liability company. Our Adviser and Administrator are both affiliates of ours (see Note 6, “Related-Party Transactions,” for additional discussion regarding our Adviser and Administrator).
All further references herein to “we,” “us,” “our,” and the “Company” refer, collectively, to Gladstone Land Corporation and its consolidated subsidiaries, except where indicated otherwise.
NOTE 2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Interim Financial Information
Our interim financial statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and pursuant to the requirements for reporting on Form 10-Q in accordance with Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, certain disclosures accompanying annual financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP are omitted. In the opinion of our management, all adjustments (consisting solely of normal recurring accruals) necessary for the fair statement of financial statements for the interim period have been included. The interim financial statements and accompanying notes should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, as filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 24, 2021 (the “Form 10-K”). The results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for other interim periods or for the full fiscal year.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, including the impact of extraordinary events, such as the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) pandemic, the results of which form the basis for making certain judgments. Actual results may materially differ from these estimates.

Recently-Issued Accounting Pronouncements
In April 2020, the FASB issued a staff question-and-answer document, “Topic 842 and Topic 840: Accounting for Lease Concessions Related to the Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic” (the “COVID-19 Q&A”), to address certain frequently-asked questions pertaining to lease concessions arising from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Existing lease guidance requires entities to determine if a lease concession is a result of a new arrangement reached with the tenant (which would be addressed under the lease modification accounting framework) or if a lease concession is under the enforceable rights and obligations within the existing lease agreement (which would not fall under the lease modification accounting framework). The COVID-19 Q&A clarifies that entities may elect to not evaluate whether lease-related relief granted in light of the effects of COVID-19 is a lease modification, provided that the concession does not result in a substantial increase in rights of the lessor or obligations of the lessee. This election is available for concessions that result in the total payments required by the modified contract being substantially the same as or less than the total payments required by the original contract. We have not needed to make use of this election to date.
NOTE 3. REAL ESTATE AND INTANGIBLE ASSETS
All of our properties are wholly-owned on a fee-simple basis, except where noted. The following table provides certain summary information about the 153 farms we owned as of June 30, 2021 (dollars in thousands, except for footnotes):

Investments in Unconsolidated Entities
In connection with the acquisition of certain farmland located in Fresno County, California, we also acquired an ownership in a related limited liability company (the “Fresno LLC”), the sole purpose of which is to own and maintain a pipeline conveying water to our and other neighboring properties. As of June 30, 2021, our aggregate ownership interest in the LLC was 50.0%. As our investment in the Fresno LLC is deemed to constitute “significant influence,” we have accounted for this investment under the equity method.
We recorded (loss) income of approximately $(11,000) and $(24,000) during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively, and approximately $(8,000) and $26,000 during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively (included on our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income as (Loss) income from investments in unconsolidated entities), which represents our pro-rata share of the (loss) income recognized by the Fresno LLC. Our combined ownership interest in the Fresno LLC, which had an aggregate carrying value of approximately $1.1 million and $1.2 million, as of June 30, 2021, and December 31, 2020, respectively, is included within Other assets, net on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Investments in Water Assets
In connection with the acquisition of certain farmland located in Kern County, California, on June 4, 2021, we also acquired a contract to purchase 20,330 acre-feet of banked water held by Semitropic Water Storage District (“SWSD”), a water storage district located in Kern County, California, at a fixed price. The contract to purchase the banked water could not readily be net settled by means outside of the contract, and all rights and obligations associated with the purchase contract were transferred to us at acquisition of the related farmland. We were not required to purchase a specific amount, or any, of the 20,330 acre-feet of water. Upon acquisition, we recognized the contract at its relative fair value in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 805, “Business Combinations.”
On June 25, 2021, we executed the contract to purchase all 20,330 acre-feet of banked water for an additional cost of approximately $1.2 million. The purchased banked water was recognized at cost, including any administrative fees necessary to transfer the water to our banked water account. While we may, in the future, sell the banked water to an unrelated third party for a profit, our current intent is to hold the water for the long-term for future use on our own farms. There is no amount of time by which we must use the water held by SWSD.
As of June 30, 2021, the investment in banked water had a carrying value of approximately $14.8 million, which includes the subsequent cost to execute the contract, and is included within Other assets, net on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet.
13

Each quarter, we will review the investment in banked water for any indicators of impairment in accordance with ASC 360, “Property, Plant, and Equipment,” and perform an impairment analysis if there are any such indicators. As of June 30, 2021, we concluded that there were no such indicators and that the water was not impaired.
Portfolio Concentrations
Credit Risk
As of June 30, 2021, our farms were leased to various different, unrelated third-party tenants, with certain tenants leasing more than one farm. No individual tenant represented greater than 10.0% of the total lease revenue recorded during the six months ended June 30, 2021.
Geographic Risk
Farms located in California and Florida accounted for approximately $20.6 million (62.6%) and $6.7 million (20.5%), respectively, of the total lease revenue recorded during the six months ended June 30, 2021. Though we seek to continue to further diversify geographically, as may be desirable or feasible, should an unexpected natural disaster (such as an earthquake, wildfire, or flood) occur or climate change impact the regions where our properties are located, there could be a material adverse effect on our financial performance and ability to continue operations. None of our farms in California or Florida have been materially impacted by the recent wildfires or hurricanes that occurred in those respective regions. In addition, in light of the ongoing drought taking place in the western U.S., all of our farms in the region have independent (and, in most cases, multiple) sources of water, in addition to rainfall, and have not been materially impacted by the current drought conditions. No other single state accounted for more than 10.0% of our total lease revenue recorded during the six months ended June 30, 2021.
Impairment
We evaluate our entire portfolio each quarter for any impairment indicators and perform an impairment analysis on those select properties that have an indication of impairment. As of June 30, 2021, and December 31, 2020, we concluded that NaN of our properties were impaired. There have been no impairments recognized on our real estate assets since our inception.

As of June 30, 2021, the above borrowings were collateralized by certain of our farms with an aggregate net book value of approximately $1.0 billion. The weighted-average interest rate charged on the above borrowings (excluding the impact of debt issuance costs and before any interest patronage, or refunded interest) was 3.73% and 3.71% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively, as compared to 3.98% for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. In addition, 2020 interest patronage from our Farm Credit Notes Payable (as defined below) resulted in a 28.7% reduction (approximately 135
14

basis points) to the stated interest rates on such borrowings. See below under “—Farm Credit Notes Payable—Interest Patronage” for further discussion on interest patronage.
As of June 30, 2021, we were in compliance with all covenants applicable to the above borrowings.
New MetLife Facility
As of December 31, 2019, our facility with Metropolitan Life Insurance Company (“MetLife”) consisted of a total of $200.0 million of term notes (the “Prior MetLife Term Notes”) and $75.0 million of revolving equity lines of credit (the “MetLife Lines of Credit,” and together with the Prior MetLife Term Notes, the “Prior MetLife Facility”). The draw period for the Prior MetLife Term Notes expired on December 31, 2019, with approximately $21.5 million being left undrawn, and MetLife had no obligation to disburse the remaining funds under those notes.
On February 20, 2020, we entered into an agreement with MetLife to remove the MetLife Lines of Credit from the Prior MetLife Facility and create a new credit facility consisting of a new $75.0 million long-term note payable (the “New MetLife Term Note”) and the MetLife Lines of Credit (collectively, the “New MetLife Facility”).
The following table summarizes the pertinent terms of the New MetLife Facility as of June 30, 2021 (dollars in thousands, except for footnotes):

(1)If the aggregate commitment under the New MetLife Term Note is not fully utilized by December 31, 2022, MetLife has the option to be relieved of its obligation to disburse the additional funds thereunder.
(2)Interest rates on any future disbursements under the New MetLife Term Note will be based on prevailing market rates at the time of such disbursements. In addition, through December 31, 2022, the New MetLife Term Note is also subject to an unused fee ranging from 0.10% to 0.20% on undrawn amounts (based on the balance drawn under the New MetLife Term Note).
(3)Based on the properties that were pledged as collateral under the New MetLife Facility, as of June 30, 2021, the maximum additional amount we could draw under the facility was approximately $24.2 million.
(4)The interest rate on the MetLife Lines of Credit is subject to a minimum annualized rate of 2.50%, plus an unused fee ranging from 0.10% to 0.20% on undrawn amounts (based on the balance drawn under each line of credit).
Farmer Mac Facility
On December 5, 2014, we, through certain subsidiaries of our Operating Partnership, entered into a bond purchase agreement (the “Bond Purchase Agreement”) with Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation (“Farmer Mac”) and Farmer Mac Mortgage Securities Corporation (the “Bond Purchaser”), for a secured note purchase facility. As subsequently amended, the Bond Purchase Agreement provided for bond issuances up to an aggregate amount of $125.0 million (the “Prior Farmer Mac Facility”) through December 11, 2018, after which date the Bond Purchaser had the option to continue buying new bonds issued under the Farmer Mac Facility.
On December 10, 2020, we entered into an amended and restated bond purchase agreement (the “Amended and Restated Bond Purchase Agreement”) with Farmer Mac and the Bond Purchaser, increasing the secured note purchase facility to provide for bond issuances up to an aggregate principal amount of $225.0 million (the “New Farmer Mac Facility”). In addition, the Amended and Restated Bond Purchase Agreement extended the date through which we may issue new bonds to May 31, 2023, and the final maturity date for bonds issued under the Farmer Mac Facility to December 31, 2030.
During the six months ended June 30, 2021, we issued one new bond under the Farmer Mac Facility, the pertinent terms of which are summarized in the following table (dollars in thousands):

(2)Loan proceeds used to repay a previously-issued loan with an outstanding balance of approximately $1.4 million and a stated interest rate of 4.99%.
In addition, on June 30, 2021, we entered into two loan agreements with Golden State Farm Credit to provide for total future loan proceeds of $22.8 million on a delayed funding basis. Disbursement of these loans must occur by October 1, 2021, and once disbursed, the loans will bear interest at a fixed rate (before patronage) of 3.75%, which will be fixed for ten years.
Interest Patronage
Interest patronage, or refunded interest, on our borrowings from Farm Credit is generally recorded upon receipt and is included within Other income on our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income. Receipt of interest patronage typically occurs in the first half of the calendar year following the calendar year in which the respective interest expense is accrued. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, we recorded interest patronage of approximately $2.2 million related to interest accrued on the Farm Credit Notes Payable during the year ended December 31, 2020. In addition, during the three months ended September 30, 2020, we recorded approximately $306,000 of 2020 interest patronage, as certain Farm Credit associations prepaid a portion of the 2020 interest patronage (which related to interest accrued during 2020 but is typically received in 2021). In total, we recorded approximately $2.5 million of 2020 interest patronage related to our Farm Credit Notes Payable, which resulted in a 28.7% reduction (approximately 135 basis points) to the interest rates on such borrowings.
Other Borrowings
During the six months ended June 30, 2021, we entered into loan agreements with certain other lenders, the terms of which are summarized in the following table (dollars in thousands):

Fair Value
ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurement (Subtopic 820)” (“ASC 820”), provides a definition of fair value that focuses on the exchange (exit) price of an asset or liability in the principal, or most advantageous, market and prioritizes the use of market-based inputs to the valuation. ASC 820-10 establishes a three-level hierarchy for fair value measurements based upon the

transparency of inputs to the valuation of an asset or liability as of the measurement date. The three levels are defined as follows:
Level 1 — inputs that are based upon quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets;
Level 2 — inputs are based upon quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active or inactive markets or model-based valuation techniques, for which all significant inputs are observable in the market or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities; and
Level 3 — inputs are generally unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement. These unobservable inputs are generally supported by little or no market activity and are based upon management’s estimates of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.
As of June 30, 2021, the aggregate fair value of our long-term notes and bonds payable was approximately $628.6 million, as compared to an aggregate carrying value (excluding unamortized related debt issuance costs) of approximately $630.9 million. The fair value of our long-term notes and bonds payable is valued using Level 3 inputs under the hierarchy established by ASC 820-10 and is calculated based on a discounted cash flow analysis, using discount rates based on management’s estimates of market interest rates on long-term debt with comparable terms. Further, due to the revolving nature and variable interest rates applicable to the MetLife Lines of Credit, their aggregate fair value as of June 30, 2021, is deemed to approximate their aggregate carrying value of $0.1 million.
Interest Rate Swap Agreements
In order to hedge our exposure to variable interest rates, we have entered into various interest rate swap agreements in connection with certain of our mortgage financings. In accordance with these swap agreements, we will pay our counterparty a fixed interest rate on a quarterly basis and receive payments from our counterparty equal to the respective stipulated floating rates. We have adopted the fair value measurement provision for these financial instruments, and the aggregate fair value of our interest rate swap agreements is recorded in Other assets, net or Other liabilities, net, as appropriate, on our accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Generally, in the absence of observable market data, we will estimate the fair value of our interest rate swaps using estimates of certain data points, including estimated remaining life, counterparty credit risk, current market yield, and interest rate spreads of similar securities as of the measurement date. As of June 30, 2021, our interest rate swaps were valued using Level 2 inputs.
In addition, we have designated our interest rate swaps as cash flow hedges, and we record changes in the fair values of the interest rate swap agreements to accumulated other comprehensive income on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. We record changes in fair value on a quarterly basis, using current market valuations at quarter end. The following table summarizes our interest rate swap agreements as of June 30, 2021, and December 31, 2020 (dollars in thousands):

NOTE 5. MANDATORILY-REDEEMABLE PREFERRED STOCK
Series A Term Preferred Stock
In August 2016, we completed a public offering of 6.375% Series A Cumulative Term Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Series A Term Preferred Stock”), at a public offering price of $25.00 per share. As a result of this offering (including the underwriters’ exercise of their option to purchase additional shares to cover over-allotments), we issued a total of 1,150,000 shares of the Series A Term Preferred Stock for gross proceeds of approximately $28.8 million and net proceeds, after deducting underwriting discounts and offering expenses borne by us, of approximately $27.6 million.
On February 12, 2021, we redeemed all of our outstanding shares of Series A Term Preferred Stock at a cash redemption price of $25.00 per share plus all accrued and unpaid dividends up to, but excluding, the redemption date. In total, we paid approximately $28.8 million for the redemption of the Series A Term Preferred Stock using proceeds from the offering of our Series D Term Preferred Stock (as defined below). Our Series A Term Preferred Stock was delisted from Nasdaq on the date we redeemed all outstanding shares. In connection with this early redemption, during the three months ended March 31, 2021, we wrote off approximately $127,000 of unamortized issuance costs related to the issuance of the Series A Term Preferred Stock.
On May 7, 2021, we filed Articles Supplementary reclassifying 850,000 shares of authorized but unissued Series A Term Preferred Stock as additional shares of common stock.
Series D Term Preferred Stock
In January 2021, we completed a public offering of 5.00% Series D Cumulative Term Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Series D Term Preferred Stock”), at a public offering price of $25.00 per share. As a result of this offering (including the underwriters’ exercise of their option to purchase additional shares to cover over-allotments), we issued a total of 2,415,000 shares of the Series D Term Preferred Stock for gross proceeds of approximately $60.4 million and net proceeds, after deducting underwriting discounts and offering expenses borne by us, of approximately $58.3 million. The Series D Term Preferred Stock is traded under the ticker symbol “LANDM” on Nasdaq.
The shares of the Series D Term Preferred Stock have a mandatory redemption date of January 31, 2026, and are not convertible into our common stock or any other securities. Generally, we are not permitted to redeem shares of the Series D Term Preferred Stock prior to January 31, 2023, except in limited circumstances to preserve our qualification as a REIT. On or after January 31, 2023, we may redeem the shares at a redemption price of $25.00 per share, plus any accumulated and unpaid dividends up to, but excluding, the date of redemption.
We incurred approximately $2.1 million in total offering costs related to this issuance, which have been recorded net of the Series D Term Preferred Stock as presented on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and are being amortized over the mandatory redemption period as a component of interest expense on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income. The Series D Term Preferred Stock is recorded as a liability on our accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets in accordance with ASC 480, “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity,” which states that mandatorily-redeemable financial instruments should be classified as liabilities. In addition, the related dividend payments are treated similarly to interest expense on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income.
As of June 30, 2021, the fair value of our Series D Term Preferred Stock was approximately $62.9 million, as compared to the carrying value (exclusive of unamortized offering costs) of approximately $60.4 million. The fair value of our Series D Term Preferred Stock uses Level 1 inputs under the hierarchy established by ASC 820-10 and is calculated based on the closing per-share price on June 30, 2021, of $26.03.
For information on the dividends declared by our Board of Directors and paid by us on the Series D Term Preferred Stock during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, see Note 8, “Equity—Distributions.”
NOTE 6. RELATED-PARTY TRANSACTIONS
Our Adviser and Administrator
We are externally managed pursuant to contractual arrangements with our Adviser and our Administrator, which collectively employ all of our personnel and pay their salaries, benefits, and general expenses directly. Both our Adviser and Administrator are affiliates of ours, as their parent company is owned and controlled by David Gladstone, our chairman, chief executive officer, and president. In addition, two of our executive officers, Mr. Gladstone and Terry Brubaker (our vice chairman and chief operating officer), serve as directors and executive officers of each of our Adviser and Administrator, and Michael
18

LiCalsi, our general counsel and secretary (who also serves as our Administrator’s president, general counsel, and secretary) is also executive vice president of administration of our Adviser.
We have entered into an investment advisory agreement with our Adviser (as amended from time to time, the “Advisory Agreement”) and an administration agreement with our Administrator (the “Administration Agreement”). The Advisory Agreement and the Administration Agreement were both approved unanimously by our board of directors, including our independent directors. A summary of the compensation terms for the Advisory Agreement and a summary of the Administration Agreement is below.
Advisory Agreement
Pursuant to the Advisory Agreement, our Adviser is compensated in the form of a base management fee, an incentive fee, a capital gains fee, and a termination fee. Our Adviser does not charge acquisition or disposition fees when we acquire or dispose of properties, as is common in other externally-managed REITs. Each of the base management, incentive, capital gains, and termination fees is described below.
Base Management Fee
Pursuant to the Advisory Agreement, a base management fee is paid quarterly and, from January 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021, was calculated at an annual rate of 0.50% (0.125% per quarter) of the prior calendar quarter’s “Gross Tangible Real Estate,” defined as the gross cost of tangible real estate owned by us (including land and land improvements, permanent plantings, irrigation and drainage systems, farm-related facilities, and other tangible site improvements), prior to any accumulated depreciation, and as shown on our balance sheet or the notes thereto for the applicable quarter.
See Note 11, “Subsequent Events—Amended Advisory Agreement,” for a discussion of an amendment to the Advisory Agreement, which revised the base management fee to 0.60% (0.15% per quarter) of the prior calendar quarter’s Gross Tangible Real Estate, beginning with the three months ending September 30, 2021.
Incentive Fee
Pursuant to the Advisory Agreement, an incentive fee is calculated and payable quarterly in arrears if the Pre-Incentive Fee FFO for a particular quarter exceeded a hurdle rate of 1.75% (7.0% annualized) of the prior calendar quarter’s Total Adjusted Common Equity.
For purposes of this calculation, Pre-Incentive Fee FFO is defined in the Advisory Agreement as FFO (also as defined in the Advisory Agreement) accrued by the Company during the current calendar quarter (prior to any incentive fee calculation for the current calendar quarter), less any dividends declared on preferred stock securities that were not treated as a liability for GAAP purposes. In addition, Total Adjusted Common Equity is defined as common stockholders’ equity plus non-controlling common interests in the Operating Partnership, if any (each as reported on our balance sheet), adjusted to exclude unrealized gains and losses and certain other one-time events and non-cash items.
Our Adviser would receive: (i) no Incentive Fee in any calendar quarter in which the Pre-Incentive Fee FFO did not exceed the hurdle rate; (ii) 100% of the Pre-Incentive Fee FFO with respect to that portion of such Pre-Incentive Fee FFO, if any, that exceeded the hurdle rate but was less than 2.1875% in any calendar quarter (8.75% annualized); and (iii) 20% of the amount of the Pre-Incentive Fee FFO, if any, that exceeded 2.1875% in any calendar quarter (8.75% annualized).
Capital Gains Fee
Pursuant to the Advisory Agreement, a capital gains-based incentive fee will be calculated and payable in arrears at the end of each fiscal year (or upon termination of the Advisory Agreement). The capital gains fee shall equal: (i) 15% of the cumulative aggregate realized capital gains minus the cumulative aggregate realized capital losses, minus (ii) any aggregate capital gains fees paid in prior periods. For purposes of this calculation, realized capital gains and losses will be calculated as (x) the sales price of the property, minus (y) any costs to sell the property and the then-current gross value of the property (which includes the property’s original acquisition price plus any subsequent, non-reimbursed capital improvements). At the end of each fiscal year, if this figure is negative, no capital gains fee shall be paid.
Termination Fee
Pursuant to the Advisory Agreement, in the event of our termination of the agreement with our Adviser for any reason (with 120 days’ prior written notice and the vote of at least two-thirds of our independent directors), a termination fee would be payable to the Adviser equal to 3 times the sum of the average annual base management fee and incentive fee earned by the Adviser during the 24-month period prior to such termination.
Administration Agreement
19

Pursuant to the Administration Agreement, we pay for our allocable portion of the Administrator’s expenses incurred while performing its obligations to us, including, but not limited to, rent and the salaries and benefits expenses of our Administrator’s employees, including our chief financial officer, treasurer, chief compliance officer, general counsel and secretary (who also serves as our Administrator’s president, general counsel, and secretary), and their respective staffs.
As approved by our Board of Directors, effective July 1, 2014, our allocable portion of the Administrator’s expenses is generally derived by multiplying our Administrator’s total expenses by the approximate percentage of time the Administrator’s employees perform services for us in relation to their time spent performing services for all companies serviced by our Administrator under similar contractual agreements.
Gladstone Securities
On April 11, 2017, we entered into an agreement with Gladstone Securities, LLC (“Gladstone Securities”), for it to act as our non-exclusive agent to assist us with arranging financing for our properties (the “Financing Arrangement Agreement”). Gladstone Securities is a privately-held broker-dealer and a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation. Gladstone Securities is an affiliate of ours, as its parent company is owned and controlled by Mr. Gladstone, who also serves on the board of managers of Gladstone Securities. In addition, Michael LiCalsi, our General Counsel and Secretary, serves in several capacities for Gladstone Securities, including as Chief Legal Officer, Secretary, and a member of its board of managers since 2010 and a managing principal since 2011.
Financing Arrangement Agreement
We pay Gladstone Securities a financing fee in connection with the services it provides to us for securing financing on our properties. Depending on the size of the financing obtained, the maximum amount of the financing fee, which will be payable upon closing of the respective financing, will range from 0.5% to 1.0% of the amount of financing obtained. The amount of the financing fee may be reduced or eliminated as determined by us and Gladstone Securities after taking into consideration various factors, including, but not limited to, the involvement of any unrelated third-party brokers and general market conditions.
We paid total financing fees to Gladstone Securities of approximately $35,000 and $52,000, during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively, and approximately $28,000 during each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. Through June 30, 2021, the total amount of financing fees paid to Gladstone Securities represented approximately 0.14% of the total financings secured since the Financing Arrangement Agreement has been in place.
Dealer-Manager Agreement
On February 20, 2020, we entered into a dealer-manager agreement (the “Dealer-Manager Agreement”), with Gladstone Securities, whereby Gladstone Securities serves as our exclusive dealer-manager in connection with the offering of our Series C Preferred Stock (as defined in Note 8, “Equity—Equity Issuances—Series C Preferred Stock”).
Pursuant to the Dealer-Manager Agreement, Gladstone Securities provides certain sales, promotional, and marketing services to us in connection with the offering of the Series C Preferred Stock, and we generally pay Gladstone Securities the following:
iselling commissions of up to 6.0% of the gross proceeds from sales in the offering (the “Selling Commissions”), and
iia dealer-manager fee of 3.0% of the gross proceeds from sales in the offering (the “Dealer-Manager Fees”).
No Selling Commissions or Dealer-Manager Fee shall be paid with respect to shares of the Series C Preferred Stock sold pursuant to our dividend reinvestment plan (the “DRIP”) for the Series C Preferred Stock. Gladstone Securities may, in its sole discretion, remit all or a portion of the Selling Commissions and also reallow all or a portion of the Dealer-Manager Fees to participating broker-dealers and wholesalers in support of the offerings. The terms of the Dealer-Manager Agreement were approved by our board of directors, including its independent directors.
In connection with sales of the Series C Preferred Stock, we paid total Selling Commissions and Dealer-Manager Fees to Gladstone Securities of approximately $808,000 and $2.0 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively, and approximately $286,000 during each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. The majority of these amounts were then remitted by Gladstone Securities to unrelated third parties involved in the respective offerings, including participating broker-dealers and wholesalers. Selling Commissions and Dealer-Manager Fees paid to Gladstone Securities are netted against the gross proceeds received from sales of the respective securities and are included within Additional paid-in capital on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

Litigation
In the ordinary course of business, we may be involved in legal proceedings from time to time. We are not currently subject to any material known or threatened litigation.
NOTE 8. EQUITY
Registration Statement
On March 6, 2020, we filed a universal registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-236943) with the SEC (the “Registration Statement”) to replace our prior universal registration statement. The Registration Statement, which was declared effective by the SEC on April 1, 2020, permits us to issue up to an aggregate of $1.0 billion in securities, consisting of common stock, preferred stock, warrants, debt securities, depository shares, subscription rights, and units, including through separate, concurrent offerings of 2 or more of such securities. Through June 30, 2021, we have issued a total of 2,029,593 shares of Series C Preferred Stock for gross proceeds of approximately $50.4 million, 2,415,000 shares of Series D Term Preferred Stock for gross proceeds of approximately $60.4 million, and 8,843,303 shares of common stock (excluding 288,303 shares of
22

common stock issued in exchange for certain OP Units that were tendered for redemption) for gross proceeds of approximately $154.2 million under the Registration Statement.
Equity Issuances
Series C Preferred Stock
On April 3, 2020, we filed a new prospectus supplement (which superseded and replaced a previously-filed prospectus supplement) with the SEC for a continuous public offering (the “Series C Offering”) of up to 26,000,000 shares of our newly-designated 6.00% Series C Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Series C Preferred Stock”). The Series C Offering permits us to sell up to 20,000,000 shares (the “Primary Series C Offering”) of our Series C Preferred Stock on a “reasonable best efforts” basis through Gladstone Securities at an offering price of $25.00 per share and up to 6,000,000 shares of our Series C Preferred Stock pursuant to the DRIP at a price of $22.75 per share.

(2)Net of Selling Commissions and Dealer-Manager Fees.
As of June 30, 2021, excluding Selling Commissions and Dealer-Manager Fees, we have incurred approximately $408,000 of costs related to the Series C Offering, which are initially recorded as deferred offering costs (included within Other assets, net on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets) and are applied against gross proceeds received from the offering through additional paid-in capital as shares of the Series C Preferred Stock are sold. See Note 6, “Related-Party Transactions—Gladstone Securities—Dealer-Manager Agreement,” for a discussion of the commissions and fees to be paid to Gladstone Securities in connection with the Series C Offering.
The Series C Offering will terminate on the date (the “Series C Termination Date”) that is the earlier of either June 1, 2025 (unless terminated earlier or extended by our Board of Directors), or the date on which all 20,000,000 shares in the Primary Series C Offering are sold. There is currently no public market for shares of the Series C Preferred Stock; however, we intend to apply to list the Series C Preferred Stock on Nasdaq or another national securities exchange within one calendar year after the Series C Termination Date, though there can be no assurance that a listing will be achieved in such timeframe, or at all.
See Note 11, “Subsequent Events—Equity Activity—Equity Issuances,” for sales of Series C Preferred Stock completed subsequent to June 30, 2021.
Common Stock
At-the-Market Program
On May 12, 2020, we entered into equity distribution agreements with Virtu Americas, LLC, and Ladenburg & Co., Inc., under which we may issue and sell, from time to time and through the current Sales Agents, shares of our common stock having an aggregate offering price of up to $100.0 million (the “ATM Program”). On May 18, 2021, we entered into separate amendments to the existing equity distribution agreements to allow us to sell up to $160.0 million of additional shares of our common stock, expanding the aggregate offering price to up to $260.0 million.

Non-Controlling Interests in Operating Partnership
23

We consolidate our Operating Partnership, which is a majority-owned partnership.  As of June 30, 2021, and December 31, 2020, we owned approximately 99.3% and 100.0%, respectively, of the outstanding OP Units. As of June 30, 2021, and December 31, 2020, there were 204,778 and 0 OP Units held by non-controlling OP Unitholders, respectively.
On or after 12 months after becoming a holder of OP Units, each limited partner, other than the Company, has the right, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the partnership agreement of the Operating Partnership, to require the Operating Partnership to redeem all or a portion of such units in exchange for cash or, at the Company’s option, shares of our common stock on a one-for-one basis. The cash redemption per OP Unit would be based on the market price of our common stock at the time of redemption. A limited partner will not be entitled to exercise redemption rights if the delivery of common stock to the redeeming limited partner would breach restrictions on the ownership of common stock imposed under our charter and other limitations thereof.
Information regarding OP Units issued to noncontrolling OP Unitholders during the six months ended June 30, 2021, is provided in the following table (dollars in thousands, except per-unit amounts):
Number of OP Units IssuedWeighted Average
Issuance Price per OP Unit
Aggregate Value(1)
204,778$19.42$3,977 
(1)Based on the closing stock price of the Company’s common stock on the date of issuance.
NaN OP Units were tendered for redemption during the six months ended June 30, 2021.
Regardless of the rights described above, the Operating Partnership will not have an obligation to issue cash to a unitholder upon a redemption request if the Company elects to redeem the OP Units for shares of its common stock. When a non-controlling unitholder redeems OP Units and the Company elects to satisfy that redemption through the issuance of common stock, non-controlling interest in the Operating Partnership is reduced, and stockholders’ equity is increased.
The Operating Partnership is required to make distributions on each OP Unit in the same amount as those paid on each share of the Company’s common stock, with the distributions on the OP Units held by the Company being utilized to make distributions to the Company’s common stockholders.
Distributions
The per-share distributions to preferred and common stockholders declared by our Board of Directors during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 are reflected in the table below.

NOTE 9. LEASE REVENUES
The following table sets forth the components of our lease revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 (dollars in thousands, except for footnotes):

(1)Fixed lease payments include contractual rents under lease agreements with tenants recognized on a straight-line basis over the respective lease terms and includes the amortization of above-market lease values and lease incentives and the accretion of below-market lease values and other deferred revenue.
(2)Variable lease payments include participation rents, which are generally based on a percentage of the gross crop revenues earned on the farm, and reimbursements of certain property operating expenses by tenants. Participation rents are generally recognized when all contingencies have been resolved and when actual results become known or estimable, enabling us to estimate and/or measure our share of such gross revenues. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, we recorded participation rents of approximately $19,000 and $45,000, respectively, and reimbursements of certain property operating expenses by tenants of approximately $38,000 and $66,000, respectively. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, we recorded participation rents of approximately $44,000 and $74,000, respectively, and reimbursements of certain property operating expenses by tenants of approximately $244,000 and $422,000, respectively. In addition, during the six months ended June 30, 2020, we received a lease termination payment of approximately $3.0 million.

NOTE 10. EARNINGS PER SHARE OF COMMON STOCK
The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted earnings per common share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, computed using the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the respective periods. Earnings figures are presented net of non-controlling interests in the earnings per share calculations. The non-controlling limited partners’ outstanding OP Units (which may be redeemed for shares of common stock) have been excluded from the diluted per-share calculation, as there would be no effect on the amounts since the non-controlling OP Unitholders’ share of earnings would also be added back to net income or loss.

OVERVIEW
General
We are an externally-managed, agricultural real estate investment trust (“REIT”) that is engaged in the business of owning and leasing farmland. We are not a grower of crops, nor do we typically farm the properties we own. We currently own 153 farms comprised of 105,282 acres located across 14 states in the U.S. We also own several farm-related facilities, such as cooling facilities, packinghouses, processing facilities, and various storage facilities.
We conduct substantially all of our activities through, and all of our properties are held, directly or indirectly, by, Gladstone Land Limited Partnership (the “Operating Partnership”). Gladstone Land Corporation controls the sole general partner of the Operating Partnership and currently owns, directly or indirectly, approximately 99.4% of the units of limited partnership interest in the Operating Partnership (“OP Units”). In addition, we have elected for Gladstone Land Advisers, Inc. (“Land Advisers”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of ours, to be treated as a taxable REIT subsidiary (“TRS”).
Gladstone Management Corporation (our “Adviser”) manages our real estate portfolio pursuant to an advisory agreement, and Gladstone Administration, LLC (our “Administrator”), provides administrative services to us pursuant to an administration agreement.  Our Adviser and our Administrator collectively employ all of our personnel and directly pay their salaries, benefits, and general expenses.
Portfolio Diversity
Since our initial public offering in January 2013 (the “IPO”), we have expanded our portfolio from 12 farms leased to 7 different, unrelated tenants to a current portfolio of 153 farms leased to 79 different, unrelated third-party tenants who grow over 55 different types of crops on our farms. While our focus remains in farmland suitable for growing fresh produce annual row crops, we have also diversified our portfolio into farmland suitable for other crop types, including permanent crops (e.g., almonds, blueberries, pistachios, and wine grapes) and, to a lesser extent, certain commodity crops (e.g., beans and corn).
The acquisition of additional farms since our IPO has also allowed us to further diversify our portfolio geographically. The following table summarizes the different geographic locations (by state) of our farms owned and with leases in place as of and for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 (dollars in thousands):

(1)According to the California Chapter of the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers, there are eight distinct growing regions within California; our farms are spread across six of these growing regions.
Leases
General
Most of our leases are on a triple-net basis, an arrangement under which, in addition to rent, the tenant is required to pay the related taxes, insurance costs, maintenance, and other operating costs. Our leases generally have original terms ranging from 3 to 10 years for farms growing row crops and 7 to 15 years for farms growing permanent crops (in each case, often with options to extend the lease further). Rent is generally payable to us in advance on either an annual or semi-annual basis, with such rent typically subject to periodic escalation clauses provided for within the lease. Currently, 115 of our farms are leased on a pure, triple-net basis, 35 farms are leased on a partial-net basis (with us, as landlord, responsible for all or a portion of the related property taxes), and 3 farms are leased on a single-net basis (with us, as landlord, responsible for the related property taxes, as well as certain maintenance, repairs, and insurance costs). Additionally, 38 of our farms are leased under agreements that include a variable rent component, called “participation rents,” that are based on the gross revenues earned on the respective farms.
Lease Expirations
Agricultural leases are often shorter term in nature (relative to leases of other types of real estate assets), so in any given year, we may have multiple leases up for extension or renewal. The following table summarizes the lease expirations by year for the farms owned and with leases in place as of June 30, 2021 (dollars in thousands):

(3)Includes two leases that were extended subsequent to June 30, 2021 (see “Recent Developments—Portfolio Activity—Existing Properties—Leasing Activity” below for a summary of this and other recent leasing activity).
(4)Consists of ancillary leases (e.g., oil, gas, and mineral leases, telecommunications leases, etc.) with varying expirations on certain of our farms.
We currently have five agricultural leases scheduled to expire within the next six months (in California, Colorado, and Michigan). Two of these potential lease expirations are the result of tenant termination options that we currently do not expect the tenants to exercise. Regarding the remaining three lease expirations, we are currently in negotiations with the existing tenants on each of these farms, as well as other potential tenants, and we anticipate being able to renew each of the leases at their respective current market rental rates without incurring any downtime on any of the farms. Overall, we currently anticipate the rental rates on these lease renewals to be relatively flat compared to that of the existing leases. Regarding all upcoming lease expirations, there can be no assurance that we will be able to renew the existing leases or execute new leases at rental rates favorable to us, if at all, or be able to find replacement tenants, if necessary.

(4)As part of the acquisition of this property, we acquired a contract to purchase 20,330 acre-feet of water stored with Semitropic Water Storage District, located in Kern County, California, at a fixed price. We executed this contract on June 25, 2021, at an additional cost of approximately $1.2 million, which is included in the total purchase price for this property in the table above. Rent is not currently being earned on the value attributable to the water. See Note 3, “Real Estate and Intangible Assets—Investments in Water Assets,” within the accompanying notes to our condensed consolidated financial statements for additional information on this water.

We recorded lease revenues of approximately $0 and $6,000 related to this lease during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively. In addition, in connection with this early termination, during the three months ended June 30, 2021, we wrote off aggregate deferred rent and rent receivable balances of approximately $43,000 against lease revenue. Upon termination of this lease, we entered into a new lease with a new tenant, effective immediately, which is included in the above table.

Financing Activity
29

Debt Activity
On June 30, 2021, we entered into two loan agreements with Golden State Farm Credit to provide for total future loan proceeds of $22.8 million on a delayed funding basis. Disbursement of these loans must occur by October 1, 2021, and once disbursed, the loans will bear interest at a fixed rate (before patronage) of 3.75%, which will be fixed for ten years. Gladstone Securities, an affiliate of ours, earned total financing fees of approximately $35,000 in connection with securing these financings.
Equity Activity
Series C Preferred Stock
On April 3, 2020, we filed a prospectus supplement (which superseded and replaced a previously-filed prospectus supplement) with the SEC for a continuous public offering (the “Series C Offering”) of up to 26,000,000 shares of our newly-designated 6.00% Series C Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock (the “Series C Preferred Stock”). Under the Series C Offering, we may sell up to 20,000,000 shares of our Series C Preferred Stock on a “reasonable best efforts” basis through Gladstone Securities at an offering price of $25.00 per share (the “Primary Series C Offering”) and up to 6,000,000 additional shares of our Series C Preferred Stock pursuant to our dividend reinvestment plan (the “DRIP”) to those holders of the Series C Preferred Stock who do not elect to opt-out of such plan.
See Note 6, “Related-Party Transactions—Gladstone Securities—Dealer-Manager Agreement,” within the accompanying notes to our condensed consolidated financial statements for more details on the dealer-manager agreement entered into with Gladstone Securities in connection with the Series C Offering.

(2)Net of selling commissions and dealer-manager fees borne by us. Aggregate selling commissions and dealer-manager fees paid to Gladstone Securities as a result of these sales was approximately $1.2 million.
The Primary Series C Offering will terminate on the date (the “Series C Termination Date”) that is the earlier of either June 1, 2025 (unless terminated earlier or extended by our Board of Directors), or the date on which all 20,000,000 shares in the Primary Series C Offering are sold. There is currently no public market for shares of the Series C Preferred Stock; however, we intend to apply to list the Series C Preferred Stock on Nasdaq or another national securities exchange within one calendar year after the Series C Termination Date, though there can be no assurance that a listing will be achieved in such timeframe, or at all.
Common Stock
At-the-Market Program
On May 12, 2020, we entered into new equity distribution agreements with Virtu Americas, LLC, and Ladenburg & Co., Inc. (each a “Sales Agent”), under which we may issue and sell, from time to time and through new Sales Agents, shares of our common stock having an aggregate offering price of up to $100.0 million (the “ATM Program”). On May 18, 2021, we entered into separate amendments to the existing equity distribution agreements to allow us to sell up to $160.0 million of additional shares of our common stock, expanding the aggregate offering price to up to $260.0 million.

COVID-19
While we have not been materially adversely impacted by the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) to date, the extent to which the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic may, in the future, impact our business, financial condition, liquidity, results of operations, funds from operations, or prospects will depend on numerous evolving factors that we are not able to predict at this time, including the duration and long-term scope of the pandemic, the spread and effect of COVID-19 variants; the adequate production, efficacy, and dissemination of vaccinations; governmental, business, and individuals’ actions that have been and continue to be
30

taken in response to the pandemic; the impact on economic activity from the pandemic and actions taken in response; the effect on our tenants and their farming operations; the ability of our tenants to make their rental payments; any disruptions of our tenants’ operations; and our ability to secure debt financing, service future debt obligations, or pay distributions to our stockholders. Any of these events could materially adversely impact our business, financial condition, liquidity, results of operations, funds from operations, or prospects.
LIBOR Transition
The majority of our debt is at fixed rates, and we currently have very limited exposure to variable-rate debt based upon the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”), which is currently anticipated to be partially phased out by the end of 2021 and completely phased out by June 2023. LIBOR is currently expected to transition to a new standard rate, the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”), which will incorporate certain overnight repo market data collected from multiple data sets. The current intent is to adjust the SOFR to minimize the differences between the interest that a borrower would be paying using LIBOR versus what it will be paying SOFR. We are currently monitoring the transition and cannot yet assess whether SOFR will become a standard rate for variable-rate debt. Our lines of credit with Metropolitan Life Insurance Company (“MetLife”) and five term loans with Rabo AgriFinance, LLC, (which are effectively fixed through our entry into interest swap agreements) are currently based upon one-month LIBOR. As such, we expect we will need to renegotiate these agreements in the future. Assuming that SOFR replaces LIBOR and is appropriately adjusted, we currently expect the transition to result in a minimal impact to our overall operations.
Our Adviser and Administrator
We are externally managed pursuant to contractual arrangements with our Adviser and our Administrator (both affiliates of ours), which collectively employ all of our personnel and pay their salaries, benefits, and general expenses directly. The investment advisory agreement with our Adviser that was in effect through June 30, 2021 (the “Prior Advisory Agreement”), and the current administration agreement with our Administrator (the “Administration Agreement”) were approved unanimously by our board of directors, including our independent directors.
On July 13, 2021, we amended the Prior Advisory Agreement (as amended, the “Amended Advisory Agreement,” and together with the Prior Advisory Agreement, the “Advisory Agreement”), which was approved unanimously by our board of directors, including, specifically, our independent directors. The Amended Advisory Agreement revised the calculation of the base management fee beginning with the three months ending September 30, 2021, while all other terms of the Prior Advisory Agreement remained the same.
A summary of certain compensation terms within the Advisory Agreement and a summary of the Administration Agreement is below.
Advisory Agreement
Pursuant to the Advisory Agreement, our Adviser is compensated in the form of a base management fee, an incentive fee, a capital gains fee, and a termination fee. Our Adviser does not charge acquisition or disposition fees when we acquire or dispose of properties, as is common in other externally-managed REITs. The base management and incentive fees are described below. For information on the capital gains and termination fees, refer to Note 6, “Related-Party Transactions—Our Adviser and Administrator—Advisory Agreement,” within the accompanying notes to our condensed consolidated financial statements.
Base Management Fee
Pursuant to the Prior Advisory Agreement, through June 30, 2021, a base management fee was paid quarterly and was calculated at an annual rate of 0.50% (0.125% per quarter) of the prior calendar quarter’s “Gross Tangible Real Estate,” defined as the gross cost of tangible real estate owned by us (including land and land improvements, permanent plantings, irrigation and drainage systems, farm-related facilities, and other tangible site improvements), prior to any accumulated depreciation, and as shown on our balance sheet or the notes thereto for the applicable quarter.
Pursuant to the Amended Advisory Agreement, beginning with the three months ending September 30, 2021, a base management fee will be paid quarterly and will be calculated at an annual rate of 0.60% (0.15% per quarter) of the prior calendar quarter’s Gross Tangible Real Estate.
Incentive Fee
Pursuant to the Advisory Agreement, an incentive fee is calculated and payable quarterly in arrears if the Pre-Incentive Fee FFO for a particular quarter exceeded a hurdle rate of 1.75% (7.0% annualized) of the prior calendar quarter’s Total Adjusted Common Equity.

For purposes of this calculation, Pre-Incentive Fee FFO is defined in the Advisory Agreement as FFO (also as defined in the Advisory Agreement) accrued by the Company during the current calendar quarter (prior to any incentive fee calculation for the current calendar quarter), less any dividends declared on preferred stock securities that were not treated as a liability for GAAP purposes. In addition, Total Adjusted Common Equity is defined as common stockholders’ equity plus non-controlling common interests in our Operating Partnership, if any (each as reported on our balance sheet), adjusted to exclude unrealized gains and losses and certain other one-time events and non-cash items.
Our Adviser would receive: (i) no Incentive Fee in any calendar quarter in which the Pre-Incentive Fee FFO did not exceed the hurdle rate; (ii) 100% of the Pre-Incentive Fee FFO with respect to that portion of such Pre-Incentive Fee FFO, if any, that exceeded the hurdle rate but was less than 2.1875% in any calendar quarter (8.75% annualized); and (iii) 20% of the amount of the Pre-Incentive Fee FFO, if any, that exceeds 2.1875% in any calendar quarter (8.75% annualized).
Administration Agreement
Pursuant to the Administration Agreement, we pay for our allocable portion of the Administrator’s expenses incurred while performing its obligations to us, including, but not limited to, rent and the salaries and benefits expenses of our Administrator’s employees, including our chief financial officer, treasurer, chief compliance officer, general counsel and secretary (who also serves as our Administrator’s president, general counsel, and secretary), and their respective staffs. Our allocable portion of the Administrator’s expenses is generally derived by multiplying our Administrator’s total expenses by the approximate percentage of time the Administrator’s employees perform services for us in relation to their time spent performing services for all companies serviced by our Administrator under similar contractual agreements.
Smaller Reporting Company Status
As of December 31, 2018, and through June 30, 2021, we qualified as a “smaller reporting company” under Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act because we had annual revenues of less than $100 million for the previous year and a public float of less than $700 million. As a smaller reporting company, we have reduced disclosure requirements for our public filings, including the reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in our periodic reports and proxy statements.
Critical Accounting Policies
The preparation of our financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) requires management to make judgments that are subjective in nature to make certain estimates and assumptions. Application of these accounting policies involves the exercise of judgment regarding the use of assumptions as to future uncertainties, and, as a result, actual results could materially differ from these estimates. A summary of our significant accounting policies is provided in Note 2 to our consolidated financial statements in our Form 10-K. There were no material changes to our critical accounting policies during the six months ended June 30, 2021.
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
For the purposes of the following discussions on certain operating revenues and expenses:
With regard to the comparison between the three months ended June 30, 2021 versus 2020:
Same-property basis represents farms owned as of March 31, 2020, and were not vacant at any point during either period presented; and
Properties acquired or disposed of are farms that were either acquired or disposed of at any point subsequent to March 31, 2020. From April 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021, we acquired 40 new farms and did not have any farm dispositions.
With regard to the comparison between the six months ended June 30, 2021 versus 2020:
Same-property basis represents farms owned as of December 31, 2019, and were not vacant at any point during either period presented; and
Properties acquired or disposed of are farms that were either acquired or disposed of at any point subsequent to December 31, 2019. From January 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021, we acquired 42 new farms and did not have any farm dispositions.
We did not have any vacant or self-operated farms during either of the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 or 2020.

(1)Tenant reimbursements generally represent tenant-reimbursed property operating expenses on certain of our farms, including property taxes, insurance premiums, and other property-related expenses. Corresponding amounts were also recorded as property operating expenses during the respective periods.
Same-property Basis – 2021 compared to 2020
Lease revenues from fixed lease payments increased slightly for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, primarily attributable to lease renewals and amendments executed at net higher rental rates and additional rents earned on capital improvements completed on certain of our farms, partially offset by the renewals of certain other leases, in which we decreased the fixed base rent component in exchange for adding in a participation rent component to the lease structure. Participation rents related to these leases, if any, are expected to be recorded during the second half of the year ending December 31, 2021.
Lease revenues from participation rents decreased for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to fewer farms having scheduled participation rent payments due during the first half 2021 versus that of 2020.
During the three months ended March 31, 2020, we received an early lease termination payment of approximately $3.0 million from an outgoing tenant on a property, which we recognized as additional lease revenue upon receipt, less a net balance of approximately $165,000 of aggregate prepaid rent and deferred rent assets balances that were written off against this amount.
Other – 2021 compared to 2020
Lease revenue from properties acquired or disposed of increased for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to additional revenues earned on new farms acquired subsequent to December 31, 2019.
Tenant reimbursements decreased for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to additional payments made during the prior-year periods by certain tenants on our behalf (pursuant to the lease agreements) to an unconsolidated entity of ours that conveys water to the respective properties.

Depreciation and amortization expense on a same-property basis decreased for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to the respective prior-year periods, primarily due to the expiration of certain lease intangible amortization periods subsequent to December 31, 2019. Depreciation and amortization expense on properties acquired or disposed of increased for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to the same respective prior-year periods, primarily due to the additional depreciation and amortization expense incurred on the new farms acquired subsequent to December 31, 2019.

Property-operating Expenses
Property operating expenses consist primarily of real estate taxes, repair and maintenance expense, insurance premiums, and other miscellaneous operating expenses paid for certain of our properties.

Same-property Basis – 2021 compared to 2020
Property-operating expenses increased for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to an increase in our obligation to reimburse one of our tenants for water usage over a specific cost threshold in accordance with the lease. We currently anticipate incurring similar costs for water usage on this particular farm throughout the remainder of 2021 but do not currently expect such elevated costs to continue beyond 2021.
Other – 2021 compared to 2020
Property operating expenses on properties acquired or disposed of increased for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to additional miscellaneous property-operating expenses incurred on certain of the new farms we acquired subsequent to December 31, 2019.
Tenant reimbursement expense decreased for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to a decrease in miscellaneous property-operating costs incurred by us in connection with our ownership interest in an unconsolidated entity. Our tenants are contractually obligated to reimburse us for these costs under the terms of the respective leases.

The base management fee increased during each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to each of the respective prior-year periods, primarily due to additional assets acquired since December 31, 2019. Our Advisor earned incentive fees during each of the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 due to our Pre-Incentive Fee FFO (as defined in
36

the Advisory Agreement) exceeding the required hurdle rate of the applicable equity base. No incentive fees were earned by our Advisor during either of the three months ended June 30, 2021 or 2020.
The administration fee paid to our Administrator decreased for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to the respective prior-year periods, primarily due to us using a lower overall share of our Administrator’s resources in relation to those used by other funds and affiliated companies serviced by our Administrator.
Other Operating Expenses
General and administrative expenses consist primarily of professional fees, director fees, stockholder-related expenses, overhead insurance, acquisition-related costs for investments no longer being pursued, and other miscellaneous expenses. General and administrative expenses increased for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to the respective prior-year periods, primarily due to increased stockholder-related expenses related to the annual stockholders’ meeting and higher professional fees related to additional appraisal costs.

Other Income (Expense)
Other income, which generally consists of interest patronage received from Farm Credit (as defined in Note 4, “Borrowings,” in the accompanying notes to our condensed consolidated financial statements) and interest earned on short-term investments, remained relatively flat for the three months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to the prior-year period, and increased for the six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to the prior-year period, primarily driven by additional interest patronage received from Farm Credit (partially due to increased borrowings from Farm Credit).
During the three months ended March 31, 2021, we recorded approximately $2.2 million of interest patronage from Farm Credit related to interest accrued during 2020, compared to approximately $1.3 million of interest patronage recorded during the prior-year period. Coupled with approximately $306,000 of 2020 interest patronage that was received during the three months ended September 30, 2020, we recorded a total of approximately $2.5 million of 2020 interest patronage from Farm Credit, which resulted in a 28.7% reduction (approximately 135 basis points) to the interest rates on such borrowings.
Interest expense increased for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to the respective prior-year periods, primarily due to increased overall borrowings. The weighted-average principal balance of our aggregate borrowings (excluding our Series A Term Preferred Stock and Series D Term Preferred Stock) outstanding for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, was approximately $631.5 million and $629.8 million, respectively, as compared to approximately $483.1 million and $482.2 million for the respective prior-year periods. Excluding interest patronage received on certain of our Farm Credit borrowings and the impact of debt issuance costs, the overall effective interest rate charged on our aggregate borrowings for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, was 3.73% and 3.71%, respectively, as compared to 3.98% for each of the respective prior-year periods.
During the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, we paid aggregate distributions on our Series A Term Preferred Stock and Series D Term Preferred Stock of approximately $755,000 and $1.6 million, respectively. The Series D Term Preferred Stock was issued in January 2021, and the Series A Term Preferred Stock was voluntarily redeemed in full in February 2021. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, we paid distributions on our Series A Term Preferred Stock of approximately $458,000 and $916,000, respectively.
During each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, we recorded net losses on dispositions of real estate assets primarily due to the disposal of certain irrigation improvements on certain of our farms, partially offset during the six months ended June 30, 2021, by net gains recognized on the sale of irrigation pivots on two of our farms that were replaced.
The net property and casualty recovery recorded during the six months ended June 30, 2020, related to insurance recoveries received for certain irrigation improvements that were damaged due to natural disasters.
During the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, we recognized a loss from investments in an unconsolidated entity of approximately $11,000 and $24,000, respectively, as compared to a (loss) income of approximately $(8,000) and $26,000 for the respective prior-year periods.
38

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, the aggregate dividends paid on our Series B Preferred Stock and Series C Preferred Stock increased over that of the respective prior-year periods due to additional shares issued and outstanding during the current-year periods.
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
Overview
Our current short- and long-term sources of funds include cash and cash equivalents, cash flows from operations, borrowings (including the undrawn commitments available under our facility with MetLife), and issuances of additional equity securities. Our current available liquidity is approximately $131.3 million, consisting of approximately $84.3 million in cash on hand and, based on the current level of collateral pledged, approximately $47.0 million of availability under our facility with MetLife (subject to compliance with covenants) and other undrawn notes. In addition, we currently have four properties valued at approximately $43.6 million that are unencumbered and eligible to be pledged as collateral.
Future Capital Needs
Our short- and long-term liquidity requirements consist primarily of making distributions to stockholders (including to non-controlling OP Unitholders) to maintain our qualification as a REIT, funding our general operating costs, making principal and interest payments on outstanding borrowings, making dividend payments on our Series B Preferred Stock, Series C Preferred Stock, and Series D Term Preferred Stock, and, as capital is available, funding new farmland and farm-related acquisitions consistent with our investment strategy.
Notwithstanding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, including the recent surge in certain variants, we believe that our current and short-term cash resources will be sufficient to fund our distributions to stockholders (including non-controlling OP Unitholders), service our debt, pay dividends on our Series B Preferred Stock, Series C Preferred Stock, and Series D Term Preferred Stock, and fund our current operating costs in the near term. We expect to meet our long-term liquidity requirements through various sources of capital, including future equity issuances (including, but not limited to, shares of common stock through our ATM Program, OP Units through our Operating Partnership as consideration for future acquisitions, and shares of our Series C Preferred Stock), long-term mortgage indebtedness and bond issuances, and other secured and unsecured borrowings. While public equity markets have experienced significant volatility lately, based on discussions with our lenders, we do not believe there will be a credit freeze in the near term. We are in compliance with all of our debt covenants under our respective credit facilities and borrowings, and we believe we currently have adequate liquidity to cover all near-term debt obligations and operating expenses.
We intend to use a significant portion of any current and future available liquidity to purchase additional farms and farm-related facilities. We continue to actively seek and evaluate acquisitions of additional farms and farm-related facilities that satisfy our investment criteria, and despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our pipeline of potential acquisitions remains healthy. We have several properties under signed purchase and sale agreements or non-binding letters of intent that we hope to consummate over the next several months. We also have many other properties that are in various other stages of our due diligence process. However, all potential acquisitions will be subject to our due diligence investigation of such properties, and there can be no assurance that we will be successful in identifying or acquiring any properties in the future.
Cash Flow Resources
The following table summarizes total net cash flows from operating, investing, and financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 (dollars in thousands):
 For the Six Months Ended June 30,  
 20212020$ Change% Change
Net change in cash from:
Operating activities$16,965 $9,937 $7,028 70.7%

Net change in Cash and cash equivalents$57,571 $11,091 $46,480 419.1%
Operating Activities
The majority of cash from operating activities is generated from the rental payments we receive from our tenants, which is first used to fund our property-level operating expenses, with any excess cash being primarily used for principal and interest
39

payments on our borrowings, management fees to our Adviser, administrative fees to our Administrator, and other corporate-level expenses. Cash provided by operating activities increased for the six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to the prior-year period, primarily due to additional rental payments received from recent acquisitions and interest patronage received from Farm Credit, partially offset by increases in the amount of interest payments made.
Investing Activities
The increase in cash used in investing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to the prior-year period, was primarily due to an increase in cash paid for acquisitions of new farms, partially offset by a decrease in the amount of cash paid for capital improvements on existing farms during the six months ended June 30, 2021.
Financing Activities
The increase in cash provided by financing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to the prior-year period, was primarily due to an increase in aggregate net cash proceeds from equity issuances (including our common stock and the Series C Preferred Stock) of approximately $70.2 million and the issuance of our Series D Term Preferred Stock (which after voluntarily redeeming our Series A Term Preferred Stock in full, resulted in net cash proceeds of approximately $31.6 million), partially offset by a decrease in net borrowings and an increase in total distributions.
Debt Capital
MetLife Facility
As amended, our facility with MetLife currently consists of a $75.0 million long-term note payable (the “MetLife Term Note”) and $75.0 million of revolving equity lines of credit (the “MetLife Lines of Credit,” and together with the MetLife Term Note, the “MetLife Facility”). We currently have $36.9 million outstanding on the MetLife Term Note and $100,000 outstanding under the MetLife Lines of Credit. While $113.0 million of the full commitment amount under the MetLife Facility remains undrawn, based on the current level of collateral pledged, we currently have approximately $24.2 million of availability under the MetLife Facility. The draw period for the MetLife Term Note expires on December 31, 2022, after which time MetLife has the option to be relieved of its obligation to disburse any additional undrawn funds under the MetLife Term Note.
Farmer Mac Facility
As amended on December 10, 2020, our agreement with Farmer Mac provides for bond issuances up to an aggregate amount of $225.0 million (the “Farmer Mac Facility”) by May 31, 2023, after which Farmer Mac had the option to be relieved of its obligation to purchase additional bonds under this facility. To date, we have issued aggregate bonds of approximately $95.2 million under the Farmer Mac Facility.
Farm Credit and Other Lenders
Since September 2014, we have closed on multiple loans with various different Farm Credit associations (for additional information on these associations, see Note 4, “Borrowings,” within the accompanying notes to our condensed consolidated financial statements). We also currently have borrowing relationships with several other agricultural lenders and are continuously reaching out to other lenders to establish prospective new relationships. Based on the properties currently pledged as collateral, we currently have $22.8 million of undrawn funds available to us from a Farm Credit association. In addition, we expect to enter into additional borrowing agreements with existing and new lenders in connection with certain potential new acquisitions in the future.

As of June 30, 2021, we did not have any material off-balance sheet arrangements.
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION
Funds from Operations, Core Funds from Operations, and Adjusted Funds from Operations
The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) developed funds from operations (“FFO”) as a relative non-GAAP supplemental measure of operating performance of an equity REIT to recognize that income-producing real estate historically has not depreciated on the same basis as determined under GAAP. FFO, as defined by NAREIT, is net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains or losses from sales of property and impairment losses on property, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. We further present core FFO (“CFFO”) and adjusted FFO (“AFFO”) as additional non-GAAP financial measures of our operational performance, as we believe both CFFO and AFFO improve comparability on a period-over-period basis and are more useful supplemental metrics for investors to use in assessing our operational performance on a more sustainable basis than FFO. We believe that these additional performance metrics, along with the most directly-comparable GAAP measure, provide investors with helpful insight regarding how management measures our ongoing performance, as each of CFFO and AFFO (and their respective per-share amounts) are used by management and our board of directors, as appropriate, in assessing overall performance, as well as in certain decision-making analysis, including, but not limited to, the timing of acquisitions and potential equity raises (and the type of securities to offer in any such equity raises), the determination of any fee credits, and declarations of distributions on our common stock. The non-GAAP financial measures presented herein have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of our results calculated in accordance with GAAP. We believe that net income is the most directly-comparable GAAP measure to each of FFO, CFFO, and AFFO.
Specifically, we believe that FFO is helpful to investors in better understanding our operating performance, primarily because its calculation excludes depreciation and amortization expense on real estate assets, as we believe that GAAP historical cost depreciation of real estate assets is generally not correlated with changes in the value of those assets, particularly with farmland real estate, the value of which does not diminish in a predictable manner over time, as historical cost depreciation implies. Further, we believe that CFFO and AFFO are helpful in understanding our operating performance in that it removes certain items that, by their nature, are not comparable on a period-over-period basis and therefore tend to obscure actual operating performance. In addition, we believe that providing CFFO and AFFO as additional performance metrics allows investors to gauge our overall performance in a manner that is more similar to how our performance is measured by management (including their respective per-share amounts), as well as by analysts and the overall investment community.
We calculate CFFO by adjusting FFO for the following items:
 
Acquisition- and disposition-related expenses. Acquisition- and disposition-related expenses (including due diligence costs on acquisitions not consummated and certain auditing and accounting fees incurred that were directly related to completed acquisitions or dispositions) are incurred for investment purposes and do not correlate with the ongoing operations of our existing portfolio. Further, certain auditing and accounting fees incurred vary depending on the number and complexity of acquisitions or dispositions completed during the period. Due to the inconsistency in which these costs are incurred and how they have historically been treated for accounting purposes, we believe the exclusion of these expenses improves comparability of our operating results on a period-to-period basis.
Other adjustments. We will adjust for certain non-recurring charges and receipts and will explain such adjustments accordingly. We believe the exclusion of these amounts improves comparability of our operating results on a period-to-period basis and will apply consistent definitions of CFFO for all prior-year periods presented to provide consistency and better comparability.
41

Further, we calculate AFFO by adjusting CFFO for the following items:
 
Rent adjustments. This adjustment removes the effects of straight-lining rental income, as well as the amortization related to above-market lease values and lease incentives and accretion related to below-market lease values, other deferred revenue, and tenant improvements, resulting in rental income reflected on a modified accrual cash basis. In addition to these adjustments, we also modify the calculation of cash rents within our definition of AFFO to provide greater consistency and comparability due to the period-to-period volatility in which cash rents are received. To coincide with our tenants’ harvest seasons, our leases typically provide for cash rents to be paid at various points throughout the lease year, usually annually or semi-annually. As a result, cash rents received during a particular period may not necessarily be comparable to other periods or represent the cash rents indicative of a given lease year. Therefore, we further adjust AFFO to normalize the cash rent received pertaining to a lease year over that respective lease year on a straight-line basis, resulting in cash rent being recognized ratably over the period in which the cash rent is earned.
Amortization of debt issuance costs. The amortization of costs incurred to obtain financing is excluded from AFFO, as it is a non-cash expense item that is not directly related to the operating performance of our properties.
Other adjustments. We will adjust for certain non-cash charges and receipts and will explain such adjustments accordingly. We believe the exclusion of such non-cash amounts improves comparability of our operating results on a period-to-period basis and will apply consistent definitions of AFFO for all prior-year periods presented to provide consistency and better comparability.
We believe the foregoing adjustments aid our investors’ understanding of our ongoing operational performance. Certain information in the table below for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, has been reclassified to conform to the current period’s presentation. The reclassifications had no impact on previously-reported Net (loss) income, FFO, or AFFO.
FFO, CFFO and AFFO do not represent cash flows from operating activities in accordance with GAAP, which, unlike FFO, CFFO, and AFFO, generally reflects all cash effects of transactions and other events in the determination of net income, and should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indication of our performance or to cash flows from operations as a measure of liquidity or ability to make distributions. Comparisons of FFO, CFFO, and AFFO, using the NAREIT definition for FFO and the definitions above for CFFO and AFFO, to similarly-titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in the definitions used by such REITs.
Diluted funds from operations (“Diluted FFO”), diluted core funds from operations (“Diluted CFFO”), and diluted adjusted funds from operations (“Diluted AFFO”) per share are FFO, CFFO, and AFFO, respectively, divided by the weighted-average number of total shares (including shares of our common stock and OP Units held by non-controlling limited partners) outstanding on a fully-diluted basis during a period. We believe that diluted earnings per share is the most directly-comparable GAAP measure to each of Diluted FFO, CFFO, and AFFO per share. Because many REITs provide Diluted FFO, CFFO, and AFFO per share information to the investment community, we believe these are useful supplemental measures when comparing us to other REITs.
We believe that FFO, CFFO, and AFFO and Diluted FFO, CFFO, and AFFO per share are useful to investors because they provide investors with a further context for evaluating our FFO, CFFO, and AFFO results in the same manner that investors use net income and EPS in evaluating net income.
The following table provides a reconciliation of our FFO, CFFO, and AFFO for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 to the most directly-comparable GAAP measure, net income, and a computation of diluted FFO, CFFO, and AFFO per share, using the weighted-average number of total shares (including shares of our common stock and OP Units held by non-controlling OP Unitholders) outstanding during the respective periods (dollars in thousands, except per-share amounts):

Net Asset Value
Real estate companies are required to record real estate using the historical cost basis of the real estate, adjusted for accumulated depreciation and amortization, and, as a result, the carrying value of the real estate does not typically change as the fair value of the assets change. Thus, one challenge is determining the fair value of the real estate in order to allow stockholders to see the value of the real estate increase or decrease over time, which we believe is useful to our investors.
Determination of Fair Value
Our Board of Directors reviews and approves the valuations of our properties pursuant to a valuation policy approved by our Board of Directors (the “Valuation Policy”). Such review and approval occurs in three phases: (i) prior to its quarterly meetings, the Board of Directors receives written valuation recommendations and supporting materials that are provided by professionals of the Adviser and Administrator, with oversight and direction from the chief valuation officer, who is also employed by the Administrator (collectively, the “Valuation Team”); (ii) the valuation committee of the Board of Directors (the “Valuation Committee”), which is comprised entirely of independent directors, meets to review the valuation recommendations and supporting materials; and (iii) after the Valuation Committee concludes its meeting, it and the chief valuation officer present the Valuation Committee’s findings to the entire Board of Directors so that the full Board of Directors may review and approve the fair values of our properties in accordance with the Valuation Policy. Further, on a quarterly basis, the Board of Directors reviews the Valuation Policy to determine if changes thereto are advisable and also reviews whether the Valuation Team has applied the Valuation Policy consistently.
Per the Valuation Policy, our valuations are generally derived based on the following:
For properties acquired within 12 months prior to the date of valuation, the purchase price of the property will generally be used as the current fair value unless overriding factors apply. In situations where OP Units are issued as partial or
43

whole consideration in connection with the acquisition of a property, the fair value of the property will generally be the lower of: (i) the agreed-upon purchase price between the seller and the buyer (as shown in the purchase and sale agreement or contribution agreement and using the agreed-upon pricing of the OP Units, if applicable), or (ii) the value as determined by an independent, third-party appraiser.
For real estate we acquired more than one year prior to the date of valuation, we determine the fair value either by relying on estimates provided by independent, third-party appraisers or through an internal valuation process. In addition, if significant capital improvements take place on a property, we will typically have those properties reappraised upon completion of the project by an independent, third-party appraiser. In any case, we intend to have each property valued by an independent, third-party appraiser via a full appraisal at least once every three years, with interim values generally being determined by either: (i) a restricted appraisal (a “desk appraisal”) performed by an independent, third-party appraiser, or (ii) our internal valuation process.
Various methodologies were used, both by the appraisers and in our internal valuations, to determine the fair value of our real estate, including the sales comparison, income capitalization (or a discounted cash flow analysis), and cost approaches of valuation. In performing their analyses, the appraisers typically (i) conducted site visits to the properties (where full appraisals were performed), (ii) discussed each property with our Adviser and reviewed property-level information, including, but not limited to, property operating data, prior appraisals (as available), existing lease agreements, farm acreage, location, access to water and water rights, potential for future development, and other property-level information, and (iii) reviewed information from a variety of sources about regional market conditions applicable to each of our properties, including, but not limited to, recent sale prices of comparable farmland, market rents for similar farmland, estimated marketing and exposure time, market capitalization rates, and the current economic environment, among others. In performing our internal valuations, we will consider the most recent appraisal available and use similar methodologies in determining an updated fair value. We will also obtain updated market data related to the property, such as updated sales and market rent comparisons and market capitalization rates, and perform an updated assessment of the tenants’ credit risk profiles, among others. Sources of this data may come from market inputs from recent acquisitions of our own portfolio of real estate, recent appraisals of properties we own that are similar in nature and in the same region (as applicable) as the property being valued, market conditions and trends we observe in our due diligence process, and conversations with appraisers, brokers, and farmers.
A breakdown of the methodologies used to value our properties and the aggregate value as of June 30, 2021, determined by each method is shown in the table below (dollars in thousands, except in footnotes):

Some of the significant assumptions used by appraisers and the Valuation Team in valuing our portfolio as of June 30, 2021, include land values per farmable acre, market rental rates per farmable acre and the resulting net operating income (“NOI”) at the property level, and capitalization rates, among others. These assumptions were applied on a farm-by-farm basis and were selected based on several factors, including comparable land sales, surveys of both existing and current market rates, discussions with other brokers and farmers, soil quality, size, location, and other factors deemed appropriate. A summary of these significant assumptions is provided in the following table:
Range
(Low - High)
Weighted
Average
Land Value (per farmable acre)$678 – $127,436$35,344 
Market NOI (per farmable acre)$190 – $3,546$1,616 
Market Capitalization Rate3.00% – 10.06%5.03%
Note: Figures in the table above apply only to the farmland portion of our portfolio and exclude assumptions made relating to farm-related facilities (e.g., cooling facilities), and other structures on our properties (e.g., residential housing), as their aggregate value was considered to be insignificant in relation to that of the farmland.
Our Valuation Team reviews the appraisals, including the significant assumptions and inputs used in determining the appraised values, and considers any developments that may have occurred since the time the appraisals were performed. Developments considered that may have an impact on the fair value of our real estate include, but are not limited to, changes in tenant credit
44

profiles, changes in lease terms (such as expirations and notices of non-renewals or to vacate), and potential asset sales (particularly those at prices different from the appraised values of our properties).
Management believes that the purchase prices of the farms acquired during the previous 12 months and the most recent appraisals available for the farms acquired prior to the previous 12 months fairly represent the current market values of the properties as of June 30, 2021, and, accordingly, did not make any adjustment to these values.
A quarterly roll-forward of the change in our portfolio value for the three months ended June 30, 2021, from the prior value basis as of March 31, 2021, is provided in the table below (dollars in thousands):

(1)Includes approximately $1.2 million paid to exercise a water purchase option that was acquired in connection with one of the farms that was acquired during the three months ended June 30, 2021.
Management also determined fair values of all of its long-term borrowings and preferred stock. Using a discounted cash flow analysis, management determined that the fair value of all long-term encumbrances on our properties as of June 30, 2021, was approximately $628.6 million, as compared to a carrying value (excluding unamortized related debt issuance costs) of approximately $630.9 million. The fair values of our Series B Preferred Stock and Series D Term Preferred Stock were determined using the closing stock prices as of June 30, 2021, of $25.98 per share and $26.03 per share, respectively. Finally, pursuant to Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Rule 2310(b)(5), with the assistance of a third-party valuation expert, we determined the estimated value of our Series C Preferred Stock to be $25.00 per share as of June 30, 2021 (see Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 10-Q).
Calculation of Estimated Net Asset Value
To provide our stockholders with an estimate of the fair value of our real estate assets, we intend to estimate the fair value of our farms and farm-related properties and provide an estimated net asset value (“NAV”) on a quarterly basis. NAV is a non-GAAP, supplemental measure of financial position of an equity REIT and is calculated as total equity, adjusted for the increase or decrease in fair value of our real estate assets and long-term borrowings (including any preferred stock required to be treated as debt for GAAP purposes) relative to their respective cost bases. Further, we calculate NAV per common share by dividing NAV by our total common shares outstanding (consisting of our common stock and OP Units held by non-controlling limited partners).
The fair values presented above and their usage in the calculation of net asset value per share presented below have been prepared by and is the responsibility of management. PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP has neither examined, compiled, nor performed any procedures with respect to the fair values or the calculation of net asset value per common share, which utilizes information that is not disclosed within the financial statements, and, accordingly, does not express an opinion or any other form of assurance with respect thereto.
As of June 30, 2021, we estimate the NAV per common share to be $13.16. A reconciliation of NAV to total equity, which we believe is the most directly-comparable GAAP measure, is provided below (dollars in thousands, except per-share data):

(1)The net change in unrealized fair value of our farmland portfolio consists of three components: (i) an increase of $0.01 per share due to the net appreciation in value of the farms that were valued during the three months ended June 30, 2021, (ii) an increase of $0.21 per share due to the aggregate depreciation and amortization expense recorded during the three months ended June 30, 2021, and (iii) a decrease of $0.02 per share due to net asset dispositions or capital improvements made on certain farms that have not yet been considered in the determination of the respective farms’ estimated fair values.
Comparison of estimated NAV and estimated NAV per common share, using the definitions above, to similarly-titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in the calculation or application of the definition of NAV used by such REITs. In addition, the trading price of our common shares may differ significantly from our most recent estimated NAV per common share calculation. For example, while we estimated our NAV per common share to be $13.16 as of June 30, 2021, based on the calculation above, the closing price of our common stock on June 30, 2021, was $24.06 per share.
The determination of estimated NAV is subjective and involves a number of assumptions, judgments, and estimates, and minor adjustments to these assumptions, judgments, or estimates may have a material impact on our overall portfolio valuation. In addition, many of the assumptions used are sensitive to market conditions and can change frequently. Changes in the market environment and other events that may occur during our ownership of these properties may cause the values reported above to vary from the actual fair value that may be obtained in the open market. Further, while management believes the values presented reflect current market conditions, the ultimate amount realized on any asset will be based on the timing of such dispositions and the then-current market conditions. There can be no assurance that the ultimate realized value upon disposition of an asset will approximate the estimated fair value above.
