About Two Rivers:

Two Rivers has developed and operates a new farming and water business model suitable for arid regions in the Southwestern United States whereby the Company synergistically integrates high value fruit and vegetable farming and wholesale water distribution into one company, utilizing a practice of rotational farm fallowing. Rotational farm fallowing, as it applies to water, is a best methods farm practice whereby portions of farm acreage are temporarily fallowed in cyclic rotation to give soil an opportunity to reconstitute itself. As a result of fallowing, an increment of irrigation water can be made available for municipal use without permanently drying up irrigated farmland. Collaborative rotational farm fallowing agreements between farmers and municipalities make a portion of irrigation water available for urban use. The Company's initial area of focus is in the Arkansas River basin and its tributaries on the southern Front Range of Colorado.
