Financing Farming in the U.S.: Improving Small and Midsized Farms through Strategic Financing

Susan Cocciarelli, Dorothy Suput & Ray Boshara

This report chronicles six working sessions, in 2009-2010, of a diverse group of people from across the country. Over a six-month period, the group explored the gap between an emerging sector of smaller-scale agriculture producers and access to capital, and devised workable strategies to create successful farmer-lender relationships.
