AgWest Farm Credit recently announced 30 agricultural and aquatic producers as recipients of the New Producer Grant, a program that awards $15,000 in start-up funds to those just beginning their businesses. This program was designed for motivated individuals who have a vision for their business and a sound plan yet lack the funds to put their plans into action.
“We offer our heartfelt congratulations to the recipients of this year’s New Producer Grant,” said Mark Littlefield, President and CEO of AgWest. “Each individual recognized has demonstrated a deep passion for agriculture and brings an innovative and energetic spirit to their work. We look forward to engaging with the recipients as they continue their journey.”
Oftentimes, the greatest barrier to beginning an agricultural operation is a lack of start-up funds. AgWest developed the New Producer Grant to help kick-start these operations, adding the program to an already robust suite of offerings built specifically for young, beginning, and small producers. Through their AgVision program, AgWest offers these producers unique financing solutions, educational opportunities, loan benefits, and dedicated staff who understand the unique challenges they face.
“Creating opportunities for new producers is an important initiative at AgWest,” said Littlefield. “Today, we are proud to celebrate with the New Producer Grant recipients and have great expectations for the future of their operations.”
