Financing Local Food in the Bay Area

Cutting Edge Capital was selected by the American Farmland Trust and the Greenbelt Alliance to develop a scalable model for sustainable financing of agricultural businesses in the Bay Area.  This important project will include a risk analysis and assessment of requirements for success across the entire sustainable agriculture value chain and will culminate with the identification and funding feasibility for several shovel-ready projects in the region.

The project will design an investment strategy for Bay Area sustainable agriculture that meets the simultaneous goals of stimulating the local economy and preserving farmland.
