AgCarolina loan officers recognize that young, beginning and small farmers have unique challenges establishing, developing and maintaining their farming operations. FarmStart is a program designed to help farmers better handle those challenges through education and the right financing options.
• Young farmer: 35 years of age or younger.
• Beginning farmer: 10 or fewer years farming, ranching, or aquatic agriculture experience.
• Small farmer: generates less than $250,000 in annual gross agricultural or aquatic sales.
If you fit into one of these categories, AgCarolina Farm Credit is ready to help. A local loan officer will be glad to review your situation and give you expert advice on the financial programs that may work best for you.
Our YBS members are invited to participate in the next class of Ag Biz Planner. Learn more.
We partner with government and farm organizations to help farmers get in business and stay that way.
