Post Carbon Board Member Jason Bradford was quoted on this article on sustainable agriculture.
From the article:
Farmland LP, a private equity fund that’s buying farmland in the Willamette Valley and San Francisco’s Bay Area and converting the acreage to sustainable farming practices, also leases land to farmers.
Farmland bought its first Oregon acreage last year with two plots in the Willamette Valley. Under the management of Jason Bradford, who is based in Corvallis and oversees the fund’s farming operations, the land is being transformed and is going for organic certification. Farmland partners with Cattail Creek Lamb of Junction City to raise lamb on newly acquired pasture land.
Bradford said that with 64 investors and $10 million raised to date, interest in what Farmland is doing is running high.
“Once we’re at this scale it becomes easier to raise more money,” Bradford said.
