Iroquois Valley Farms LLC is Expanding -- New Equity Offering is Increased
Accredited Investors Only
Chicago, IL, September 26, 2011 – Having recently completed the acquisition of two central
Illinois farms totaling over 300 acres, Iroquois Valley Farms LLC announced that it was
increasing the amount of an oversubscribed equity offering to $1,200,000. The acquisition
reflects a growing business that now owns over 600 acres of sustainably managed farms. The
new capital will directly impact the emerging growth of local and organic foods. Advisory
services for these acquisitions were provided by Working Farms Capital.
Illinois-based Working Farms Capital connects private investors with ownership in certified or
transitional organic farms under lease to legacy farmers. Long term leases are designed to
retain existing farm tenants and their intimate knowledge of the land. Land uses are diversifying
to include specialty grains, wind farms and conservation development. Working Farms Capital
is at the forefront of this development and is expanding operations in the Midwest.
The typical farm lessee is a family farmer that operates their own business utilizing rotations of
row and cover crops, small grains, vegetables and pastured livestock. Owners receive a land
rent with a variable upside based on overall farm profitability. Most of the production is for
human consumption. New owners are primarily accredited investors utilizing IRA funds.
According to David Miller, founder of Working Farms Capital, the investment theme is simple,
“We’re offering investors a unique growth opportunity supported by an appreciating and
sustainable real asset. Focusing on soil health and renewable energy will naturally grow
revenues and enhance the long term value of these farms.”
Working Farms Capital was incorporated Illinois in 2007 to enable new capital for the transition of
conventional farmland to organic practices. To receive more details, contact David Miller
