Missouri Beginning Farmer Loan Program

The Agricultural and Small Business Development Authority administers a program that enables lenders to receive federally tax-exempt interest on loans made to beginning farmers. The tax savings are passed on to beginning farmers in the form of lower interest rates. A qualified borrower can borrow up to $509,600 to buy:

  • agricultural land
  • farm buildings
  • farm equipment
  • and breeding livestock

The maximum loan is $509,600. Of this amount, depreciable agricultural property may not exceed $250,000, with a limit of $62,500 for used depreciable property.
