- Are you a new farmer or farm cooperative and confident that you’ll be successful, but you have minimal track record to date?
- Have you written a business plan and done your homework on your proposed venture, but have limited financial resources?
- Can you demonstrate responsibility, good work ethic and follow-through?
Then, FarmStart might be for you.
FarmStart was created to assist beginning farmers and new cooperatives through start-up, providing investments in working capital of up to $50,000. Repayment of these funds is up to five years. Our purpose is much deeper than just providing the funds, though. FarmStart is envisioned as a key element in the success of startup ag businesses. Not only will recipients have the opportunity to develop a successful credit record, but also to learn the discipline of effective cash flow management. Click here for a full program brochure.
