Press Release: Iroquois Valley’s Direct Public Offering
Retail investors can now directly invest in organic farmland through Iroquois Valley’s Direct Public Offering (DPO). The DPO provides a long-term investment opportunity targeting market rate returns for the asset class while supporting healthy food production, environmental stewardship, and prosperity for independent farmers and their communities.
“We want to mobilize the public to invest directly in small farmers and participate in building a healthier agricultural system,” says CEO & Co-Founder, David Miller. “The DPO is about investors of all kinds coming together to support a healthy farm economy from soils, to food, to farmers.”
By purchasing stock through this DPO, investors gain direct exposure to a diversified portfolio of organic farmland while supporting independent farmers and their businesses. With an accessible minimum investment just above $10,000, the DPO accelerates Iroquois Valley’s ability to raise capital, expand its farmland portfolio, improve corporate profitability, grow investor returns, and support farmers regenerating the soil and the food system.
Director of Business Development & Investor Relations, Alex Mackay says, “we have been waiting many years to include investors who have shown passion for what we’re doing but couldn’t participate because of the minimums or the net worth threshold. It’s very exciting that we can offer our REIT Equity Shares to folks who want to directly support organic farmers while investing in a real asset for the long-term.”
