Future farmers, AG-track students and 4-H kids gotta start somewhere. Typically, it's by raising a farm animal to show/sell at a county fair. There are costs: the critter, the space, the feed … Enter the LOCAL Ag Loan from Community First!
We work with young future farmers to understand their goals and create a business plan. Then those farmers-to-be are equipped with debit card access to purchase their animal and supplies. They keep records, receipts, and watch their investment grow – literally. In the end, they make money, and have learned the tenants of business. Sustainably satisfying!
