Sustainability is what we practice every day to keep land healthy and productive. AcreTrader trusts our farmers as partners to make wise decisions for their farms, and we’re here to support them in sustaining their businesses, the quality of their land, and the food we depend on.

We enroll our acres with Leading Harvest , a nonprofit that ensures land is being managed sustainably through science-based, 3rd-party audited standards. Our membership in Leading Harvest helps keep our sustainability efforts measurable and our properties compliant with their standards, moving us toward more sustainable outcomes for farmers, investors, and the land.
We assist farmers and their families in expanding their operations. We work closely with operators throughout the investment process, not just as tenants, but as collaborators and often as equity partners, helping them grow the value of their business as well as their acreage.
We support farmers in expanding USDA certified organic acres under operation and in transitioning acres to organic production for the first time. AcreTrader has raised tens of millions in capital for organic farming operations.
Renville Farm is a 160-acre grain farm purchased by AcreTrader to be transitioned to USDA certified organic production by a farming family operating outside Minneapolis. The operator, Fitzgerald Farms, has over 20 years of organic farming experience and runs a consulting business to train and mentor other farmers making the transition. AcreTrader’s capital raise also included funding for water management improvements to aid in organic production. The 36-month transition process began in 2021 with a spring planting of peas.
