Kroka Expeditions

Kroka Expeditions is a wilderness education school in southern New Hampshire. The campus includes many acres of forest, stream, and hill, plus a three-acre organic farm where they grow a portion of their vegetables, berries, milk, and eggs. A loan from Equity Trust in 2016 enabled them to purchase and protect prime farmland nearby that was under threat of development, providing an opportunity to expand their produce-growing capacity and secure their long-term agricultural sustainability. After the land was secured, they granted the local land trust a conservation easement that permanently protects the land from development while allowing Kroka to farm it. A provision in our deal with them will ensure that the land will be made available to another nonprofit or a farmer if they ever decide to end their ownership of it.
