From their website:
"Through the Calm The Farm marketplace, farmers can request the support and finance they need to confidently transition away from synthetic fertilisers and chemicals to regenerative principles. We do the work of matching those requests with investors wanting to back New Zealand’s transition to more climate-friendly farming.

We’re using on-farm data, the latest tools and technologies and independent scientific inquiry to measure the outcomes on farms practicing regenerative agriculture. We’ve partnered with Toha Science to surface the impact of regenerative farm management."
