Agricultural Loans and Farm Financing Programs

1. How long are your terms for financing land?

AgAmerica’s unique spectrum of land loan products have terms (lengths) ranging from 18 months to 30 years. While the specific terms vary by product, you can have confidence that every loan package is custom-built with our client’s financial goals in mind. Numerous factors influence the terms of your potential loan package; first and foremost are your motivations and priorities. Our borrowers typically qualify for more than one of our lending programs, and the products they select are ultimately their preferences.

2. Can I get a loan using my land as collateral?

Absolutely. Often times, your most valuable asset is the very land your operation sits on. Whether it’s been in the family for generations or the beginning of a legacy all your own, land is at the heart of everything it means to be a farmer, rancher, or timberland owner.  It also represents a prime piece of collateral when you apply for an agricultural land loan. To brush up on how to use your property as collateral when you apply for a land loan, click here.

If you’re already an ag land owner, using the equity you already have in your land creates an opportunity to refinance short-term and intermediate debt (like machinery debt). In some cases, we’ve been able to lower our clients’ monthly interest payments by over 50%, saving them thousands each year.

3. Does AgAmerica offer loans for hunting land?

We sure do. Whether you’re a hunter, hiker, angler, bird watcher, or conservationist, AgAmerica can finance your recreational land purchase with customized 18 months to 30-year terms so you can enjoy your hunting property now, and for years to come. Learn more about our Recreational Land Loan program and review its parameters.
