Access to Financing

SOIL Loan Fund

Grow your farm or food business with a SOIL loan from ANCA and Foodshed Capital

The SOIL Loan program — a collaboration between ANCA and Foodshed Capital — provides flexible, zero-interest financing to small farm and food businesses to help them grow, increase their stability, and strengthen food system security. The SOIL Loan Fund supports food producers who have difficulty accessing financing through conventional loan programs due to challenges and risks inherent in small-scale farming.

Learn more below, in our May 17, 2022 press release announcement and in the Adirondack Daily Enterprise.
