Tyson is the Manager of our NW Operations at Agriculture Capital. As a member of the sustainable food and agriculture operations team, Tyson focuses on oversight, management and strategic analysis of the firm’s farm and midstream investments in the Pacific Northwest.
Tyson joins Agriculture Capital with a combination of farm, management and business experience. Raised in the US Virgin Islands, he was inspired at an early age by tropical agroforestry. Settling in Oregon, Tyson spent the first decade of his professional career on a 170-acre diversified organic farm managing general farm operations including livestock, wholesale, market and value-added enterprises. With a drive to gain deeper understanding and experience across the agricultural value chain, Tyson worked at Organically Grown Company as a Business Opportunity Analyst where he led projects focused on grower services, financial analysis, modeling and business development.
“I am excited to be working with AC because the firm’s approach aligns and with my perspective that through the combination of profitable agricultural business models with investment vehicles that promote sustainable growth, we create equitable regional communities and resilient environmental systems at a scale that positively moves the needle on the challenges humanity confronts in feeding ourselves.”
Tyson earned a B.S. in Environmental Sciences with an emphasis on biology from the University of Oregon and an M.B.A. from the Lundquist College of Business focused on the intersection of sustainable business practices and finance.
