Built by farmers, owned by farmers

We’re a farmer-owned broker

The Regen Farmers Mutual is for farmers wanting to be rewarded for good land and environment practices, who are too small on their own to cost-effectively access Environmental Markets.

A mutual creates the infrastructure to enable cohorts of farmers to gather around specific environmental transactions. The terms and conditions of these transactions are captured in stewardship agreements, while the conditions of membership of the mutual set peer-led practice benchmarks and compliance processes. Standardising and embedding terms on-chain in smart contracts then enables value to be tied to provenance, specific practices and measured outcomes, delivering further value to farmers.
