The Pioneer Valley Grows community will be gathering together in person and online to celebrate the launch of the PV Grows Investment Fund's new Social Impact Fund. Come and meet the PVGIF team, farm & local food entrepreneurs, and current & prospective investors (just like you!) to do more than buy local – to invest in your local food system.

PVGrows Investment Fund + The New Social Impact Pool
You can do more than buy local -- you can invest in local farms and food businesses through the new PVGIF Social Impact Pool. Here are some highlights:

  • It now only requires $500 to invest in the local food system through PVGIF.
  • Earn 0% to 2% financial interest (you decide) plus the impact of helping our local food system.
  • Investments are for three years and automatically renew (unless you tell them otherwise).
  • It's grassroots investing in order to fund values-aligned projects! Read the PVGIF Offering Memorandum on their website ( to understand the details and invest.

About the PVGrows Investment Fund

The Pioneer Valley Grows Investment Fund was launched in 2015 to provide flexible financing to grow the local food system through community investments. To date, they have raised more than $2.2 million from our community and provided financing to 55 farm and local food system entrepreneurs.
