Acquiring Minds: Building a $350m Holdco of Farms | Jack McCarthy Interview

There’s a big industry in America with all the characteristics you want as a business buyer. This industry has high fragmentation, retirement-age owners, opportunity to implement modern best practices, and enduring demand. Today’s guest, Jack McCarthy, is building a big business buying these littler businesses. And these little businesses are… farms. There are countless mom & pop operations growing crops like pistachios and almonds. Since their first acquisition in 2017, Jack & his team have acquired $350 million worth of (mostly) pistachio & almond farms, across 1,000 miles from Northern California down to Arizona.
