Beginning Farmer Programs
If you’re a young, beginning or small (YBS) farmer in the AgChoice Farm Credit territory, new programs will help you jumpstart your farming dreams.
Full- or part-time farmers who started farming within the past two years or who plan to start a farm business in the next two years, can apply for one of ten $10,000 jumpstart grants. In addition to farming in the AgChoice territory, recipients must submit a business plan and complete the AgBiz Basics educational program by August 31.
AgChoice also is offering expanded benefits for eligible YBS farmers, including up to a .25% interest rate reduction on new AgChoice loans.
"Working with AgChoice, it felt personal. It wasn't just about them doing their job. They went above and beyond to make sure that we succeeded."
