Every farmer or food entrepreneur needs to understand financing as a business tool—even if it’s not needed now. This workshop will offer insight on the specific lending options available for farm and food businesses and what lenders are looking for, as well as help you consider when and why to seek financing. The Carrot Project offers financing and practical assistance to farms and food enterprises in the Northeast. Benneth Phelps is the Loan and Business Assistance Coordinator.
