A newly updated online directory outlines 83 individual programs that assist beginning and first-time farmers, existing family farm operations, and agribusiness firms.
Agricultural loan programs, including those for beginning farmers, are listed in the newly updated directory of state agricultural loan programs, available free online here.
This directory is updated every few years by the National Council of State Agricultural Finance Programs and the Council of Development Finance Agencies. The state-by-state listings include aggie bond loans, beginning farmer tax credit programs, and many other targeted agricultural loan programs.
Our website discusses farm startup financing strategies in addition to the directory's list. Click here for our beginning farmer resources.
