In this week’s episode of the Young Farmer Podcast, we hear from Raechel Sattazahn, knowledge center director for AgChoice Farm Credit, and Matthew Hackenberg, a loan officer from AgChoice.
Financial planning is more important than ever, and according to Hackenberg, one of the biggest ways for a young farmer to get off to a good start is by saving up as much money as possible and having a clear business plan in writing.
Also, AgChoice has launched a new grant for young farmers in its territory: $10,000 grants for full- or part-time farmers who have started farming in the past two years or plan to start a farm business in the next two years.
Recipients must submit a business plan and complete the Ag Biz Basics educational program by Aug. 31. Applicants need not be an AgChoice customer.

In the meantime, enjoy listening to the Young Farmer Podcast.
