Croatan Conversations: Investing in Regenerative Agriculture Infrastructure Across Value Chains

August 4, 2022, 12pm – 1:30pmET

Join Croatan Institute on August 4, 2022 to hear from a panel of experts on financing the specific needs of regenerative agriculture infrastructure businesses and implementing innovative capital solutions. Regenerative farms rely on small-to-mid scale, aligned infrastructure to process, transport, and market their products. These middle infrastructure businesses help to improve farm income and bolster regional food economies while providing significant social and environmental benefits. However, these unique business models require innovative and patient forms of capital to grow and succeed. 

This panel will share their experiences and lessons learned, as well as pathways forward for investors and capital providers to better serve regenerative agriculture infrastructure enterprises. This Croatan Conversation accompanies the launch of our new report, “Investing in Regenerative Agriculture Infrastructure Across Value Chains”

This conversation is supported by Paul and June Rossetti and Foodshed Capital.
