Vision

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

- Iroquois Nation, Great Law of Peace
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:

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.

Maintain a fairly valued, democratically governed enterprise.

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

Transition traditional investment capital.

Protect farmland.

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