Foodshed Capital provides low-and-zero-interest loans to farms and food producers working to advance regenerative agriculture. As a certified community development financial institution (CDFI), Foodshed Capital is focused on those who are underserved by traditional financing, especially women, people of color and low-income individuals. We support farms dedicated to using resilient, eco-friendly practices that foster soil health and biodiversity and produce healthy, culturally appropriate food for our local communities.

Foodshed Capital

There is a clear mismatch between the expectations of the broader financial markets and a healthy, thriving food system. Regenerative agriculture is a land management technique to build organic matter, resilience, and diversity. It is acknowledgement that a healthy relationship between rancher/farmer and their land is cyclical and necessarily takes time. Foodshed Capital is providing desperately needed financial resources at the intersection of our food system, health, and climate change. — Pete

Banking that reverses climate change

One of the biggest blockers to the massive adoption of emissions-reducing technology is access to low-cost capital—a lot of it. Atmos is solving the problem by building a new banking model designed to exclusively finance climate-positive projects at scale, with bank deposits. When you open an Atmos account, you benefit from higher savings rates while advancing the transition to a clean economy.
