SARANAC LAKE | The Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA) has launched
a new program to help farmers and food entrepreneurs who have difficulty
accessing financing through conventional lenders.

ANCA’s SOIL Loan Fund provides flexible, zero-interest loans between $5,000
to $45,000 to qualified farm and food businesses. The regional economic
development nonprofit established the program in response to a demonstrated
need among North Country producers.
