The Farm at Okefenokee

As part of the 2021 Dai-ichi Innovation Fund, Protective received $500,000 from our parent company to further our research and explore more sustainable-focused investments, which we implemented in 2022. In our commitment to being a leading corporate citizen, Protective remains focused on building a better future for our business, people, and communities.

"We started exploring 12 areas for new sustainable investments and decided sustainable developments and energy were two areas where we could have real impact," said Stephen Grover, Associate II, Innovation. "Were a company built on caring for people, so we searched for something personal.”

One such project was the Farm at Okefenokee, a revolutionary agricultural community in Georgia offering a sustainable farm-focused lifestyle. After discussions with the developers, Protective was able to offer a mortgage investment. The 705-acre farm will feature a regenerative model with free-range animals organically tilling and fertilizing fields that will be used for growing food.

Residential homes built from renewably grown wood and locally sourced materials will line pastures, nestle among olive groves and accompany 365 standing garden beds — one for each day of the year. People will live in community together, connected to each other and their food.
