Iroquois Valley Farms LLC was formed in 2007 in Iroquois County, Illinois as the first food enterprise in the United States to integrate farmland and organic food production, utilizing the mid-size family farmer. Offering a uniquely corporate and indefinitely scalable opportunity to benefit from the production of healthy and nutritious foods, the company has purchased over 1750 acres of farmland for transition to organic production. The farmland is leased through long term tenancies to farmers that are independently operating their own family farm business. Corporate revenues and profitability are directly connected to the growing businesses of these farmers.
Recent purchases have included farms in Michigan, New York, Illinois and Indiana — all for young farmers expanding their organic foods and dairy production. The last dozen farms acquired by Iroquois Valley Farms LLC (a farm in Maine is pending) have been purchased as part of its’ nationally acclaimed Young Farmer Land Access Program. The company is well positioned to benefit from the growth of organic and specialty crops produced by an expanding base of mostly young farmers. According to Co-Founder, Dr. Stephen Rivard, the prescription for success is simple, “Healthy food is good medicine and good business”.
By supporting a range of educational, local foods and sustainable agriculture conferences and initiatives, the company has developed a broad pipeline of prospective tenants and is continuously purchasing farmland for lease to these mostly mid-size family farmers. While past performance is no guarantee of future results, long term members have been consistently rewarded with the growth of their capital.
Iroquois Valley Farms was certified as a B Corporation in 2012 and has been chosen by Impact Assets as a participant in its Impact 50 (IA50) listing of worldwide impact investments for both 2012 and 2013. .
