Put your resources to work supporting a diverse collection of short-term bridge loans made to regenerative farms and food producers.
Raised to date
While direct, community-sourced loans fuel the long-term growth of regenerative farms, growers also face immediate, short-term financial needs that must be met to maintain continuous production or pursue time-sensitive opportunities (e.g., repairing a tractor, paying for feed and transport before livestock are processed, or purchasing equipment at auction).
Steward Regenerative Capital seeks to bridge this gap, supporting a suite of agricultural stewards in the critical period of preparation before embarking on a larger capital raise. This secured, semi-liquid lending opportunity is another way we can work together to propel regenerative agriculture forward.
