Our History

While the team at Oak River Farms began buying farmland in 2005, Oak River Farms was officially founded in 2014 to invest in farmland.

We are not and have never been passive investors, but rather long-term stewards for our farms.

We invest in land, but also in sustainable agriculture, agriculture technology, and most importantly, the communities in which we operate.
