Young, Beginning and Small Farmers

Farm Credit of Central Florida has been financing farmers of all types for over 100 years. For many farmers, we were the first (and often the only) lender chosen as they began their farming operations. Many of these farmers have continued to use Farm Credit for all of their operating needs as their operations have become larger and more complex.

Our loan officers understand agriculture and the many difficulties involved in beginning a new farm operation, transferring an existing operation, or expanding into new commodities or territories. We are the agricultural experts!

If you qualify as a young, beginning or small farmer, Farm Credit is ready to help you. Our loan officers will be glad to review your situation and give you expert advice on the financial programs that may work best for you. We work closely with many government and farm organizations, including the FSA Guarantee Program to assist farmers in getting and staying in business.

Contact us today for more information about our Young, Beginning and Small Farmers Program – we are here to help.
