Contract Producers

Are you thinking about signing an agreement to grow broilers or hogs or starting a layer operation? Before you sign that contract and start to build a facility, talk to an AgChoice Farm Credit loan officer about a contract facility loan.

Our loan officers have years of experience financing these specialized buildings. We have ongoing relationships with the feed companies and integrators who provide the contracts. We understand those contracts. Our loan officers know how to structure a farm business loan and payment plan to match the cash flow generated by this unique type of farming. AgChoice can also show you how to borrow the money needed to manage your income taxes properly.

You can reduce the hassle involved in getting your operation off of the ground by working with AgChoice Farm Credit throughout the process. Our team of experts knows:

  • How to handle the required permits and other legal matters that impact the construction of a facility.
  • What comparable buildings in Pennsylvania (and in the northeast United States) cost and are worth.
  • How to work with you and your builder to keep construction risk low.
  • Ways to prepare your cash flow for adversity, if it strikes.

In short, AgChoice Farm Credit can walk you through the start-up process to reduce the risk and burden required to start a contract operation. We can often tell you in the first meeting if the loan is likely to be approved and you can break ground the day the farm loan closes.
