Civil Eats: Can an Investment Firm Help Increase U.S. Organic Farmland?
Iroquois Valley was featured in a Civil Eats article, “Can an Investment Firm Help Increase U.S. Organic Farmland?” for our work to help scale organic agriculture in America. The article features interviews with farmers we work with at Vilicus Farm, Creambrook Farm, and Richview Farms.
Some key takeaways from the article:
- Demand for organic products is increasing in the US, but organic acreage has not increased at the same rate. Iroquois Valley is changing that by financing farmland for organic farmers.
- We want to scale up and impact more farmers. We currently have over 50 farms in our portfolio, but want to grow to hundreds of farms.
- We need more investors to help us build the movement we believe in. We are opening a Regulation A+ offering that will allow public investors to invest in our mission.
