YBS Farmers

If you are a young, beginning, or small farmer, Colonial 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.

Colonial Farm Credit has been financing farmers of all types for more than 100 years, in good times and in bad. We were the first (and often only) lender that many of these farmers chose when they first started farming and have continued to use as their operations have become larger and more complex.  Young, beginning and small farmers are those who are 35 years of age or less, have been farming for 10 years or less, and/or operate farms producing $350,000 of gross revenue or less. 

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 have more resources for Young, Beginning, and Small Farmers in our Toolbox section of the website.
