If you are planning an off-season project that will require a loan, the Vermont Farm Fund has money available for loans. Business Builder Loans are made to Vermont Farmers and Food Producers who meet their criteria with interest rates at 3% per year. Loans can range from $5000 to $25,000, depending on qualification and fund availability, repayable in 2 to 4 years. The application process is simple and turnaround from application to funding is two to three weeks. Learn more about the Vermont Farm Fund at www.VermontFarmFund.org.
