Investing in a Sustainable Food Future
01.20.2021 - By The Farm Report
Most capital invested in agriculture in the U.S. flows to large, commodity farms. For smaller operations that don’t fit the conventional mold, it can be difficult—if not impossible—to get a loan. Steward aims to change that by connecting online investors to small- and mid-size sustainable farms. In this episode, founder and CEO Dan Miller talks to host Lisa Held about how the company is serving farmers and funding the production of better, environmentally-friendly crops, from vegetables grown on an urban farm in Detroit to organic hemp grown in rural Southwest Oregon.
