Welcome Farmers for Innovation IRA Investors


Farmers for Innovation (FFI) has chosen STRATA Trust Company as its custodian of choice to offer tax-deferred Self-Directed IRAs as a simple way to purchase shares of its private offering.

FFI investors that choose to invest through a STRATA Self-Directed IRA will receive competitive annual fees on STRATA’s IRA Fee Schedule.

In addition, FFI investors will have a STRATA-dedicated team that they can speak to about opening, funding, and investing in FFI’s private offering through their Self-Directed IRA.


Step 1:  Establish a new self-directed IRA (SDIRA) Flex account with STRATA via the Online IRA Application – FLEX.

Step 3:  STRATA establishes your SDIRA account, funded with the transfer from your existing IRA provider.

Step 4:  FFI provides your investment subscription documents for electronic signature.

Step 5:  Complete the Alternate Investment Direction Form that authorizes STRATA to send funds to FFI for your investment purchase.
