Introducing Silverstrand Capital
What is the Perennial Fund?

There has been great innovation at the structure side of finance that aims to help farms transition into sustainability. Basically, the fund is a revenue sharing model that focuses on helping farmers pay back loans, getting technical assistance on top of that, and also giving them communal support that is usually under-looked.
