SLM Partners is developing new strategies to scale up regenerative organic farming in the USA, with a focus on organic grains.
Organic farming has the potential to improve soil health, reduce water pollution and increase biodiversity, while storing more carbon on the land. Because strong consumer demand has translated into sustained price premiums, organic certification can also improve farm profitability and help revitalize rural communities.
SLM Partners is acquiring conventional cropland on behalf of investors and transitioning it to organic certification, in partnership with local farmers. We make land available to qualified farmers through long-term leases that share risks and rewards. We are pursuing this investment strategy through separate accounts and plan to launch a fund.
SLM Partners is also building a farmland management company that can work with investors and landowners to directly transition land to organic certified production.
We currently have 30,000 acres of farmland under management in the USA.
