In 2007, two former college roommates from Loyola University Chicago reunited to offer a solution to conventional agriculture's ecological and economic degradation and its impacts on public health. Looking for a more sustainable answer to a broken food system and extractive economic policies, a doctor and an investment banker formed Iroquois Valley to begin the healing process for the next generation of farmers and responsible investors. Combining respective careers in real estate finance/banking and medicine, Mr. Miller and Dr. Rivard are proving that growing healthy food is good business.
“Our goal is to convert enough farmland to organic to literally change the paradigm of our healthcare system by offering organic food as a matter of fact rather than a choice.”
Iroquois Valley began operations in Iroquois County, Illinois providing secure land access to organic farmers according to triple bottom line principles. The Company is committed to scaling organic agriculture in the US by getting more organic farmers on the land, funded by socially responsible investors. Iroquois Valley has invested in 50+ farms in 14 states comprising nearly 10,000 acres.
"We built our business to support the businesses of our farmers."
