VISION

VILICUS FARMS | HILL COUNTY, MT
Iroquois Valley Farmland REIT has adopted corporate ownership as the most generationally focused, indefinitely scalable and democratically governed structure suitable to its vision of permanently impacting sustainable agriculture.

Embodied in this vision are the following seven guiding principles:

“In every deliberation we must consider the impact on the seventh generation"

Iroquois Nation, Great Law of Peace

Enable the next generation of young farmers to positively impact world health.

Farm with healthy, humane and organic practices

Without GMOs, toxic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, synthetic fertilizers or other harmful chemicals.

Keep the farmers on the land

By indefinitely renewing their leases and preferentially selling to the farm tenant. Members trade “stock,” not land.

Grow a broad-based membership

Reaching thousands of like-minded investors concerned about the health of people, the planet, and financial stability.

Transition traditional investment capital

From conventional trading and extractive practices to renewable and regenerative uses.

Maintain a fairly valued, democratically governed enterprise

Enabling both members and farmers to enjoy a stable and profitable return on their farming investment.

Protect farmland
