Direct Investment


Steward is a lending platform providing regenerative farms and food producers with the resources they need to thrive. The platform does this by making flexible financing available to human-scale farms, ranches, fisheries, and food processors wishing to expand their businesses.

Steward fills the finance gap by providing business loans as well as a spectrum of services tailored to regenerative producers. Steward's loan platform makes it simple to fund one-of-a-kind agricultural initiatives or a group of regenerative enterprises. When lenders participate, the loans are utilized to modernize equipment, develop infrastructure, or buy land—whatever is needed to continue expanding.

Through regenerative agriculture, Steward aims to encourage environmental and economic sustainability. Their objective is to bring together regenerative agriculture and mission-driven lenders to help restore local and equitable food systems for everyone.
