Borrowing Money: When is it right and can I pay it back?
Do you have questions about your farms ability to service a loan, what the right type of loan may be for your farm, how to do financial planning around receiving a loan, or how to know if a loan for a capital investment would be worth it for your business? Are you interested in creative financing models for your farm or how to finance a land purchase?
