rePlant Capital is financing scalable climate solutions. Through rePlant’s flagship “Soil Fund”, we are forming partnerships to finance the transition of American farmland to regenerative, organic agricultural practices, which protect our planet’s most valuable assets: soil, air, and water. The Soil Fund will focus on building soil health, financial resiliency for farmers, lasting food security, yielding a healthier planet for future generations.
The Problem —
- U.S. farmers are facing severe financial hardship after being sold a system focused on chasing yield instead of focusing on farmer profitability.
- The soil is exhausted after decades of mechanical tillage and agrochemicals.
- Both problems come from a post-World War II industrialized agriculture model which was focused on large-scale calorie inputs for American consumers, instead of healthy products. This has resulted in massive soil depletion as we have lost 30% of our topsoil in the past 50 years.
— The Solution
rePlant Capital’s Flagship Soil Fund I makes it easier and cheaper for farmers to adopt regenerative and organic practices – resulting in increased farm profits and increased soil health.
Healthy soil is the farmers’ most important asset — and holds enormous promise to drawdown carbon.
HOW WE’RE DOING THIS
integrated capital fund
Providing flexible, low-cost loans to leading farmers, with simplified documentation and minimal security/collateral requirements, means they can afford to adopt regenerative and organic practices and increase their profitability. At the same time, the Fund will invest in ag tech solutions that allow farmers to save money, save their topsoil and water, while doing more on-farm processing and more direct-to-consumer distribution.
A Breakthrough in Reversing Climate Change
WHAT FARMERS ARE SAYING
Partnering with rePlant Capital through the Soil Fund has been a great experience for our family. We have established a relationship built on mutual respect and trust. They represent the future of financial relationships.
We established a wonderful financial partnership with Don, Dave, and Robyn in the past. I’m thrilled to potentially do so again.
I transitioned my farm to a regenerative and animal compassionate farm 25 years ago. The re-enrichment of our local village has been an unintended consequence of our action. The rePlant team’s approach is now helping mitigate this hurdle for farmers, making the transition possible for an increased number of farms.
