Crowdfunding Platform Lets Investors Put Money into Regenerative Farms
A new crowdfunding platform called Steward is helping individual investors support regenerative agriculture with investments of as little as $100, reports Fast Company. To date, Steward has invested $2.2 million in 16 different farms, mostly in the United States. Investors are to receive dividends from the interest farmers pay on those loans. Participating farms must be “sustainable and regenerative.” Steward CEO Dan Miller says investors will soon be able to choose to invest directly in a single farm.
