FSA Microloans

This might be a good place to look if you need to borrow funds for a small farming or marketing operation startup.

Contact your local FSA (Farm Service Agency) office if interested in a USDA microloan that can help new farmers own land. http://www.fsa.usda.gov/…/farm-loan-progra…/microloans/index

Program Description:

The focus of Microloans is on the financing needs of small, beginning farmer, niche and non-traditional farm operations, such as truck farms, farms participating in direct marketing and sales such as farmers’ markets, CSA’s (Community Supported Agriculture), restaurants and grocery stores, or those using hydroponic, aquaponic, organic and vertical growing methods. 

Cheers!

Voting for Beef Producers in Missouri

Sign up online at the Missouri Beef Referendum to be able to vote yea or nay in this forced upon us referendum.  The Missouri Beef Industrial Council says they need more money to ‘educate’ people about beef.  Don’t most consumers already know that we have beef available for sale in Missouri?  Honestly, I’m tired of taxes.

Cheers
