OUR STORY

We’re driving a paradigm shift in global agriculture, to unlock – and safeguard – nature’s value.

For today, and tomorrow.

In 2010, our founders recognised the role for agriculture to address emerging global climate and nature crises. But rising to that challenge would require a fundamental shift in how agricultural land was managed.

Fast-forward almost fifteen years, and Impact Ag Partners has transformed over 600,000 acres across two continents using regenerative farming practices and other nature-based solutions that optimise food and fibre production, while protecting the land’s ability to support future generations.

We’re passionate about unlocking the value of natural capital. For each farm, ranch, and agribusiness we work across, we assess its current stock of natural capital, explore the best and highest use, and implement strategies that enhance its value to investors, communities, and ecosystems. This includes regenerative grazing and cropping; ecosystem markets; renewable energy; product premiums; and green finance opportunities.

Working across twenty farms and ranches throughout Australia and the United States, we’re the first ones to deliver a profitable nature-positive transition at scale – partnering with purpose-driven investors to accelerate global impact.

From the ground up.
“I always knew that agriculture – backed by the right sort of capital – could deliver nature and climate solutions. Impact Ag is proud to partner with global impact investors to lead the regenerative transition not just in Australia, but across the world.”
BERT GLOVER, IMPACT AG PARTNERS FOUNDER AND CEO USA

620,000 ACRES UNDER MANAGEMENT IN AUSTRALIA AND USA:

560,000 ACRES CATTLE & SHEEP PRODUCTION

61,000 ACRES MIXED FARMING

13,000 ACRES IRRIGATED CROPPING

500 ACRES PERMANENT TREE CROPS

OUR PEOPLE

Impact Ag Partners brings together an experienced, dedicated, and diverse team of experts across regenerative agriculture, investment, and natural capital.

And we’re all united by one purpose: driving a nature positive future. But we can’t achieve it without getting our hands dirty.

From our executive leadership team to our farm managers and operators, we’re on the ground every day, implementing industry leading regenerative farming practices to transform agricultural land into ecosystems that thrive for nature and profit.

From our founding in regional Australia in 2010, we’ve grown to a global team – all located in rural communities, and all with a deep connection to the land on which we work and live.

With collective decades of industry experience, networks, and investment insights across multiple geographies, we’re pioneering a global shift in agricultural land management – where farming and nature co-exist.
