Working Farms Capital manages and develops farmland ventures looking to prosper from the long term growth of specialty and organic foods. Our focus is sustainable agriculture — mostly local foods and organic practices with ecological impact.
We have been providing seed capital and transitional management to such ventures since 2008, including Iroquois Valley Farms LLC, the first U.S. based private company to directly connect investors and farmers with organic farmland. Our most recent managed venture is Local Farms Fund, impacting farmers and investors in the tri-state region of New York, Connecticut and New Jersey Our track record proves that farmland ownership with a sustainable business model is an attractive asset class with financial returns often exceeding other investment alternatives. As volatility and credit risk continually vie for center stage in today’s markets, more capital is flowing to renewable and real assets.
Our sponsored ventures have historically focused on accredited investors looking for long term growth of capital and future income. However, we are now developing new options for non-accredited investors. We work primarily with financial advisors, family offices, private foundations and faith based institutions with sustainable program directives. Retirement plans and IRA’s account for a significant amount of the capital sourced.
Where else can one invest in an asset that naturally gains productivity while growing healthy foods and improving our environment?
