SOIL RESTORATION NOTES

Iroquois Valley has independently issued promissory notes since 2014 to offer investors a fixed-income security that supports organic farmers. Capital raised will help expand the amount of organic farmland in the US, support independent farmers as they establish and expand their businesses, and seek to create a wide range of social and environmental impacts.  This product is only available to accredited investors.

Direct Impact Through the Soil Restoration Pool

This security includes a unique and important financial impact for organic farmers – the Soil Restoration Pool. Building soil health is ongoing work for organic farmers. Healthy, nutrient-dense soils produce nutritious foods. The Soil Restoration Pool offers support for farmers within the Iroquois Valley portfolio in their soil-building projects during the organic transition and beyond. As investors accrue interest, the Company also pays an additional 0.5% into the Pool, which is paid out directly to farmers. Funds are available for all soil-building projects, such as soil amending, agronomist consulting, reimbursement for cover crop seed, fencing assistance, and/or reimbursement or rental expense or mortgage interest. These funds function like grants and are deployed to farmers at no cost.
