Sam unpacks how and why an investor is ready to back an aspiring farmer - which could potentially be you.
Cultivator - the World’s first farm investment incubator
I wanted to give an update on the Cultivator program which we are currently taking expressions of interest for applicants
It is a 6 month incubator program where we take 10 aspiring farmers and help them pull a farm pitch together and at the end, one farmer is going to be backed by an investor (who has already backed Freeland Pork).
We have had a number of enquiries and I wanted to give some more details to help answer some common questions we are having.
Please do reach out if you are interested, I am happy to chat with you about whether this is for you.

6. How we will support you if you aren’t the matched farmer. You now have a pitch that you can take to unlock other investors or impress a retiring farmer. You will be confident in who you are as a farmer and willing to get out there and open doors. And the Cultivate Farms team will be alongside you the whole way
7. We will have a stack of media opportunities during the program where you can get your face and name out there to build interest from people who could back you
There isn’t a program like this in the world, and we are so excited to have created this opportunity for aspiring farmers. So please don’t let this opportunity pass you by
