Farmland Cooperative on Top 50 ImpactAssets
Iroquois Valley Farms LLC selected to the ImpactAssets 50 Four Years in a Row
Soil Capital: A Foundational Impact
We believe our social commitment of keeping farmers on the land is key to our success and selection to the IA50, the only public database of leading impact investment managers. Iroquois Valley Farms has been investing in organic soils and farmers growing healthy food since 2007. Our selection in 2015 is more important than ever as investors become increasingly aware of scientific support for organic agriculture.
Calvert Foundation, one of the leaders of the socially responsible investing movement, formed ImpactAssets in 2010 to generally advise the public of this growing market. For five years now, ImpactAssets has chosen 50 firms from an international grouping of the most experienced and diverse organizations offering a social, environmental and financial return. We commend Calvert Foundation and ImpactAssets for supporting innovation in socially responsible investing. Iroquois Valley Farms is honored to join the Calvert Foundation, RSF Social Finance, Lyme Timber, EcoTrust Forest Management, Farmland LP, and others, on this year's ImpactAssets IA50.
The IA50 provides Impact Investors third-party validation from an experienced review committee of thought leaders in the field.
Iroquois Valley Farms was established to scale the conversion from the industrial monoculture to sustainable, regenerative agriculture. To enable this transition, our company provides land access for family farmers impacting the organic and specialty food markets. We are also training the next generation of responsible investors on organic soils and climate change mitigation.
Effectively, we are promoting a re-alignment of conventional asset allocation models. Iroquois Valley Farms was developed as a foundational investment, a scalable real asset company with which investors can build a more diversified portfolio.
