I chose this idea because I feel that it is how I can have the greatest impact on helping transition our food system from its reliance on destructive farming methods, to regenerative ones.

We support small regenerative farmers!

Putting our Seed Round Money to Work: Three high value areas of investment and why Thrive and Grow Farms is special

#1 Thrive's Turn-key Regenerative Farm Model

We have created a proven replicable system that paves the way for small farming entrepreneurs to live their dream of making a great living farming their land. We are now ready to apply this model to our turnkey real estate and farm business development program!

Land Development and our Turnkey farm program:

People can purchase one of our turnkey farming operations, a fast pass to becoming an agricultural producer.

Guides and manuals: Like any business, a fully developed business plan is key to success. This is especially the case with a farming business where a vast array of procedures are involved in producing an agricultural crop and taking it to market. We have developed valuable intellectual property in the form of guides and procedures manuals which can be easily adopted by farmers both in purchasing farms we have developed as well as starting their own.

Farm model testing: Once we finished developing our turnkey farm model guides, Tommie then applied our program on his own land. He began with our base turnkey farm model of 1/4 acre with an expansion opportunity up to 1/2 acre. As of December 2022, Tommie has been farming using this model for 1 year. Tommie worked the program and gathered meticulous data.

The results are in! Yields and profitability are more than 2-fold higher than our conservative projections. Continuing to farm just the 1/4 acre, Tommie will be in the black and have recuperated all of his startup costs including labor, materials, equipment, and even a $35,000 well in just 1.8 years! An incredible ROE (return on equity)!

Bringing it all together with our turnkey farm development program

Our turnkey farms create value through real estate and farm business development.

We will be taking these 32 acres of raw land and turning it into 4 individual farms with infrastructure such as utilities, roads, home sites, and farming areas. Upon completion these properties will be actively producing and selling food through our network and for our value-added agricultural products.

2 Year Projected Financial Impact from Seed Round Funding*:

ARR (annually recurring revenue) Includes turnkey farm business with land sales developing and selling 4 small farm/homestead per year and DIY startup program sales. Averaging yearly turnkey farm sales into a monthly ARR = $1,020,000

*forward looking projections cannot be guaranteed.

Meaningful Impact from Seed Round Funding: The first 4 new turnkey farm businesses being run and operated by new owners growing regenerative food for their community. Also, a guided DIY new farm startup program being implemented throughout the region dramatically increasing the amount of farmland.

#2 Our Regenerative Foods Brand Truly Regenerative TM: FUTURE EXIT!!

One of the most challenging components of running a farming business is marketing and selling the produce that you grow. We support farmers over this hurdle which can lead to higher profits and less food waste. Generating security for small regenerative agricultural producers is the key to a sustainable food system.

We unveiled Truly Regenerative at the AZ Moonshot pitch competition and won 1st place! You can watch it here.

Our local partners are ready to help us distribute our new value-added agricultural products and we have farms on board, ready to provide produce to us. Use of funds for this part of the business will include equipment, staff, and plant-based packaging to begin selling these agricultural products.

"It's about time for food manufacturers to prioritize the use of local produce with this zero-waste food model." -Michael Ismail

MRR (monthly recurring revenue) Value added agricultural product sales. MRR = $30,000

Team development and mentorship:

One of the most significant litmus tests for our business and plans for expansion has in our ability to build a team of passionate individuals who want to spend their time and energy moving forward our mission. Additionally, it is been through the reflections of our mentors, friends and family that we have been able to see this process to the point where we are ready to bring on investors. Special thanks to Startup Tucson for the support and guidance they have provided, and also to our mentor Kent Adams whose vast experience in our field has yielded invaluable guidance, reflections, and insights that we would have been hard pressed to find anywhere else.

Here is an interview with Kent Adams and Michael Ismail as we near the launch of our campaign.

The Future of Thrive and Grow Farms

Upon completion of this current round of fundings goals, we expect to have a strong foundation of assets and revenue to propel us into our next round of business expansion that will broaden our impact.

People, Profits, Planet

The bottom line is our commitment to doing our part to make the world a better place. We are in business to make a profit, but in so doing, our business can reshape the standard modern agricultural model into one that leans on regenerative agriculture as a means to heal our environment, while providing a sustainable and secure food system.

We hope that you share our vision that good business and being a good corporate citizen go hand-in-hand. Thanks for your interest in Thrive and Grow Farms. We hope you join our team!
