Empowering people to invest in sustainable farms and the farmers who steward them.

Introducing Steward

Sustainable farmers prove that there is a better way to do agriculture. But the going is tough for the little guys: human-scale farms need access to capital if they’re going to survive and grow—capital that’s often hard to come by.

As the world’s first CrowdFarming platformTM, Steward helps sustainable farms to flourish by allowing regular people to invest in them directly, and prosper alongside them. So whether you're an investor looking to build your wealth without compromising your values, or a farmer looking for the back-up you need to take that next step, with Steward everybody wins.

But the going is tough for the little guys: human-scale farms need access to capital if they’re going to survive and grow—capital that’s often hard to come by.

Our Story

Faced with farmers in need of capital and consumers hungry to support sustainable causes, Steward founder, Dan Miller, imagined a new way to bring them together: CrowdFarming. It's a new term for an ancient idea: that by investing in our land together, we can share in its rewards..

Inspired by his own family’s real estate and farming roots, Dan created Steward as a way of providing healthy dollar returns for investors and a sustainable future for farmers..

Steward is part of a global movement to reconnect with our food and land—and the people who steward it.

Steward was born out of a realization that the farmers most committed to responsible agricultural practices are the ones that face the biggest obstacles when trying to secure funding—and that there are significant rewards out there for those of us willing to invest directly and put our money where our mouths are.
