Potato Farm Financing Through Commercial Ag Loans

Ever wondered where your fries originated while waiting in the drive thru lane? Where they came from? Potatoes are a staple in our lives, our food choices almost always include some form of potato, whether it be french fries or bread.  Potatoes are generally grown from seed potatoes, which are specifically grown to be disease free and provide consistent and healthy plants. To be disease free, the areas where seed potatoes are grown are selected with care. In the USA this restricts production of seed potatoes to only 15 states out of the 50 states that grow potatoes, and they are chosen due to their harsh winters, that would kill off anything if it were present.  With such selectivity you could say its a lucrative industry, making competition fierce. This makes a commercial ag loan a necessity, unless you are ready to pay for land equipment and start up costs out of pocket.

With each acre costing almost $3,000 in order to produce potatoes, depending on the size of your farm you have a pretty steep price to pay upfront. The process of getting a commercial farm loan can be intimidating, but American Ag Finance has what it takes to get you through the complicated loan process.
