Steward maintains a high standard of sustainable farm projects on our platform. Lenders care about the impact on the land, not just their wallets.
Experienced farm bookkeeping service helps you stay on top of your accounting and provide long-term financial support.
Steward is a financial partner and will work with you to combine lending options and identify other funding sources (e.g. grants & govt. loans).
Invite your customers and community to participate in the loan. We believe in enabling communities to contribute to the stewardship of the land.
