Why We Support Organic Farmers

S hareholder activist and corporate social responsibility firm  As You Sow  released  RoundUp Re vealed: Glyphosate In Our Food System. This  powerful report and webinar presentation show how pervasive the use of glyphosate has become in American agriculture. 

This report  reinforces our commitment to the organic movement.  We are proud to support organic farmers working to heal the land and impact public health with the food they produce.

Connecting farm families, communities, and investors since 2007. 
 
As a corporate guideline,  we do not look for specific farmland to purchase or finance. We develop relationships with farmers, mostly young and organic, that want to grow their farm business. We move forward if we have a ready, willing and able farmer in hand.
