Farms, forests, and rural communities.
New Island Capital pursues active, direct investments in organic and regenerative agriculture, as well as sustainable forestry, working at the nexus of rural communities, local economic development, conservation, and resource stewardship. We work with farmers, foresters, and rural enterprises in service to a regenerative land ethic that also supports local ownership, worker empowerment and wellbeing, and community vitality.
We seek deep engagement with our partners and work to cluster our efforts in communities where the “green shoots” of this land ethic are widely apparent. By demonstrating strong environmental outcomes alongside robust financial returns, we hope that our influence extends beyond the fence line, inspiring neighbors and other asset owners to pursue new paradigms in land stewardship and rural economic development.
