Case Study

Stepstone, Infrastructure – Organic Farming

We hold MeadlowLark Lands Fund I in our Cycle 3 Infrastructure portfolio, aimed at creating a more sustainable food system. MeadowLark focus on organic farmland which seeks to improve soil health and organic matter and reduce GHG emissions from farming, with associated biodiversity, ecosystem and climate benefits.

The conversion of conventional farmland to organic, and sustained organic farmland practices, are expected to drive impactful environmental benefits from improved soil health and microbial activity that will result in improved biodiversity and ecosystems, The improved soil organic matter will allow for additional sequestering of carbon from the atmosphere increasing soil carbon. A further benefit of organic farming is the reduced usage and runoff of pesticides and synthetic fertilisers into water systems.
