FarmStart: new loan program for VT new farmers

  • 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.
