In Jan. 2013 the Farm Service Agency announced a new program to provide low-interest loans of up to $35,000 to farmers. In response to the tremendous interest in this new offering, the Cornell Small Farms Program held a webinar on April 10 with Carrie Novak of the FSA to explain the details and answer questions. Here is the streamed recording of this webinar.
So many great questions were asked during the webinar that Carrie summarized these into a Q&A document available for download as a PDF here.
To apply for the loan, visit the FSA website to download an application and instructions.
