Farm Asset Builder Program

a matched savings opportunity

In the Farm Asset Builder program, participants can multiply a portion of their earned income to save for an intermediate– or long-term farm asset.

In addition to receiving a saving match, participants will work with Angelic Organics Learning Center staff, financial professionals, and experienced farmers to implement or refine financial recordkeeping systems and key financial statements that successful farmers use to track and manage their finances.  In January, participants will meet at the Learning Center with whatever records, recordkeeping systems, and financial tools they have to make a financial tracking plan for the year that will be reviewed quarterly for tweaking and course-correction.

Participants will also meet informally with lenders to discuss their businesses’ needs and financial positions, and they will work over the course of the year to determine the best use of the program funds.
