SOIL Loan Fund

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

To support the SOIL Loan Fund with an online donation, please visit the 2021 Local Farm Challenge giving page.
