Loans For Sustainable Agriculture

Dec 26, 2012

A new initiative offers loans to increase opportunities in Ohio for sustainable agriculture.

The Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association and a group of investors have created a loan fund for members employing ecologically sound and financially viable agricultural practices that don't fit the mold for traditional banking loans. Association director Carol Goland says the first loans ranging between 5-thousand and 50-thousand dollars will be made in January.
