New investment service Calm the Farm is aiming to help conventional farmers convert to regenerative agriculture, by providing access to investors and farming advisors. Regenerative farming has been shown to be better than conventional farming for both the environment and the climate and often results in increased production levels by improving the soil’s ability to store carbon, reducing erosion and minimising nutrient leaching. Calm the Farm will also track results of farmers to show the long-term impacts of the shift. Investors of all types are being sought, including family investors, equity investors and banks, and many farmers have already expressed an interest. Calm the Farm raised $1.3 million last year to build up its infrastructure and start writing pledges.
