Two Rivers Water & Farming Co

Business Description


Our core business acquires farmland with senior water rights and converts this farmland from traditional use of growing marginally profitable feed crops to growing fruit and vegetable crops that generate higher yield, revenue and operating margins. We also deploy excess land and water to other associated business opportunities. Currently, this expansion includes the development of 157 acres in Pueblo county Colorado into a greenhouse and processing facility to lease to cannabis growers.

In the short-term, our business model is designed to provide us with increased profitability and cash flow that is enabling us to expand our operations by acquiring and developing additional irrigated farmland and associated water rights and infrastructure. In the longer term, we believe our ability and willingness to pay a higher price for water will increase our access to water. Potentially some of our water rights can be provision to municipalities to address their supply challenges. We seek to concentrate our acquisitions on water rights and infrastructure that are, in part, owned by municipalities, which can alleviate and expedite the legal and political processes necessary for municipal consumers to obtain excess water.

In the semi-arid regions of the southwestern United States, prices for municipal water can be five to ten times the price of irrigation water and that price differential may be amplified in the near future as the result of a predicted water supply shortage for municipalities. First-generation western water business models attempted to arbitrage the price differential between irrigation water and municipal water by “buying and drying” irrigated farmland in order to sell irrigation water to municipalities. This practice, under which some of the most productive irrigated farmland would be fallowed, decimated entire agricultural communities and led to political and legal challenges that ultimately made the practice untenable. In the late nineteenth century, agricultural interests were granted approximately 85% of all water rights in the State of Colorado, and those water rights continue to be held primarily by agriculture interests. Since the late nineteenth century, populations have increased and people have moved from farms to cities, resulting in a water shortage for municipalities.

We believe our business model, which we currently are implementing in the Arkansas River Basin in Colorado, is a more viable and sustainable solution than the “buy and dry” practices of the past. Market transactions between buyers and sellers from both the agricultural and municipal communities, rather than unending political and legal processes, are the driving force behind our model. We create new and better paying jobs for farming, marketing, handling and processing fruits and vegetables, which can reinvigorate the agricultural communities where we operate, and in the longer term we intend to wholesale to municipal communities any excess water not needed for our core agricultural business.

We intend to develop and bring into production more of our currently held gross acres as we acquire additional water rights. Our crop production consisted of cabbage, pumpkins and squash grown for human consumption, as well as feed crops, such as corn and sorghum, planted as part of our crop rotation practice. We expect to increase the variety of crops we produce as we continue to expand our farming operations through acreage we manage and through our network of growers. Our produce marketing operations package and ship produce for our farms and for a network of farmers who grow crops for us, and to date we have sold our fruits and vegetables principally to national accounts.

Our business model integrates irrigated farming and water distribution in a manner developed specifically for semi-arid regions in the southwestern United States. By acquiring and converting irrigated farmland from feed crop production to fruit and vegetable production, we can afford to pay a higher price for water than a feed crop farmer. As a result, we elevate the price of water, thereby creating incentives for feed crop farmers to grow fruits and vegetables for us, when their farm is suitable, or to sell their farms to us. Additionally, the increased value of water creates incentives for farmers who have marginal farming operations to consider selling their water assets. By integrating our irrigated farmland with an expanding portfolio of water assets, we are positioning our company to benefit from the continued expansion of regional and global demand for food and water in the years to come. While a growing world population and rising incomes have been increasing demand for high quality food and fiber, the amount of arable land has been decreasing and water resources are fixed. By converting irrigated farmland from feed crop production to higher value fruit and vegetable production we elevate the economic productivity of the region within which we operate and make an additional segment of water available for other users.

Our current area of focus is the Arkansas River Basin, on the southern Front Range in Colorado. The elevations in the area fall from 14,000 feet above sea level at the eastern crest of the Continental Divide to 4,500 feet above sea level in Pueblo, Colorado. The Arkansas River is a tributary of the Mississippi River.
