Iroquois Valley Farms has reached a milestone: This spring we added the 50th farm to our portfolio. Our farmland REIT — honored as a “Best for the World” company from B Labs — provides secure land tenure for 35 farm families working nearly 9,000 acres of farmland. More families will be joining the Iroquois Valley Farms fold soon.
Iroquois Valley Farms starts with the farmer, who comes to us with specific land needs. The company either purchases land the farmer wants, and then rents it to the farmer with a long-term lease. Most frequently the purchased farm is additional acreage for the farmer. We also provide mortgage financing to help farmers purchase the land themselves. All of our farmland is organic and beyond, or in transition to organic. All of our farmers run their own businesses.
