Proposed Credit Union Aims to Fund Small Farmers

April 10th, 2017

Cornucopia’s Take: One of the enduring and biggest struggles for small farmers is access to capital and financing from lenders. This credit union in Maine would loan money on attractive terms to farmers and food producers to help re-localize Maine’s food systems, revitalize rural communities, rehabilitate soils, and reverse the food system as a vector of disease.
