Getting a start in the agriculture industry can be difficult, and finding a reliable line of credit when you're just starting out can be even harder. We have you covered.
At Carolina Farm Credit, we believe that we can safely make loans for young, beginning and small farmers and that we should offer support to this part of our agricultural community that will be the future of our industry.
Young, beginning and small farmers can take a course called Ag Biz Planner to learn how to best run their farming operations. Each year, Carolina Farm Credit sponsors several farmers or farm families to complete the course. Learn more.
Our association’s Agricultural Leadership Institute is held in the spring for a group of young, beginning and small farmers which are community leaders and highly respected by their peers. This event is an intense weekend of management, transition, and business planning seminars.
Each year, Carolina Farm Credit accepts 18 YBS famers/farm families to participate in this weekend. Contact us for more information.
"Farm Credit has been there for us to have operating lines, equipment loans. And as we've grown, they've been there with us."
To better serve the needs of young, beginning and small farmers, Carolina Farm Credit is a Farm Service Agency (FSA) Preferred Lender. To help manage credit risk, we recommend participation in the FSA or other guarantee programs. Learn more.
