Farm Financing Advanced Winter Workshop

One of the biggest hurdles to starting and growing a farm business is finding the money to do so. Financing any new business, let alone a farm, can be hard to do and requires a ton of time putting together business plans and completing loan applications. Many farmers end up working off-farm jobs in order to finance the start of their farms. There ARE other ways though. Things like crowdfunding campaigns or programs such as the Learning Center’s new Farm Asset Builder Program are just a couple examples of unique opportunities to raise money for your farm.

On March 4th, Angelic Organics Learning Center will be hosting an advanced winter workshop on Farm Financing. Topics will include:

  • How to finance your farm through bank loans
  • Crowd funding campaigns
  • Accredited investors
  • Smart management of cash flows
  • Bootstrapping
  • Grants
  • And other local financing programs

We will hear from 1st Farm Credit Services, WWBIC, Angelic Organics Learning Center, Frontera Farmer Foundation, SLoFIG, and local area CRAFT farms. This workshop is a great way to get creative about how to finance your farm!
