Meg's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped improve the functionality and efficiency of my CSA farm business so that I can be creative instead of bogged down.
I'm a female farmer in New Jersey. For the past 5 years I've been operating a small diversified CSA serving 50 families. I grew up in Baltimore, Maryland. I was a city kid through and through. That is, until my grandmother took me for a trip to the old family home place in Virginia where our relatives had farmed corn and tobacco and hay for generations. I knew after my experiences visiting my ancestral home that I wanted to live a life with a deep connection to the land. It has always made sense to me and it's this now existing relationship that I pride myself most on. I currently farm in coastal New Jersey, just an hour from New York City. It's really great to be so close to a big city and all of the culture and customer base, while still having the space to tend things that grow and enjoy nature and quiet. It's my hope that I can take what I've learned in the past few years and shift my focus to the most profitable and impactful aspects of my business. I want to be able to buy a small farm with my longterm partner Neil one day, once my business is generating enough income to do so.
