Vermont Farm Fund
The Vermont Farm Fund is a program of the CAE, in partnership with Pete's Greens. We provide no-hassle, friendly-term loans to local farmers and food producers. A true revolving loan fund, as the community of recipients pays back their loans, funds are replenished for the next cycle of borrowers.
- We take pride in the borrowers across the state who have used this Fund, and are paying back for the next borrower! Read our BORROWER STORIES here.

When a producer pays back their loan, that money is put back into circulation so that another producer in need can take advantage of the funds. Our applications and loans are reviewed, overseen and processed in partnership with an advisory committee that live and work all over Vermont. Our VFF Committee have agricultural, community, business and financial backgrounds.
