AGAware Registration Young, Beginning and Small Farmers Workshop

  • 1601 Maple St Carrollton, GA, 30118 United States (map)

In August, AgSouth Farm Credit will offer two educational workshops for young, beginning, and small farmers in our local area.

All workshops are 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Lunch is provided at no cost. Register Here.

AgSouth Farm Credit has a strong commitment to assisting young, beginning and small (YBS) farmers with their financing needs.

We have been working with farmers for nearly a century and understand the many difficulties involved in beginning a new farm operation, transferring an existing operation or expanding into new commodities or territories. 

What is a young, beginning or small farmer?

  • A young farmer is 35 years of age or younger
  • A beginning farmer has 10 or fewer years of farming, ranching or aquatic agricultural experience
  • A small farmer generates less than $250,000 in annual gross agricultural or aquatic sales

If you are a young, beginning or small farmer, our loan officers will be glad to review your situation and give you expert advice on the financial options that will best meet your needs. Contact your local AgSouth Farm Credit office.
