We understand what it takes to farm in Nova Scotia. Like generations of Nova Scotia farmers before, you know this land. You know what it takes to make it profitable - to make the most of what it can offer. You see more than soil and buildings; you see potential - and so do we. That's why for almost 80 years we have been committed to supporting Nova Scotia farmers. Our clients aren't numbers or accounts – they're our friends, our neighbours and our family.
For almost 80 years, The Nova Scotia Farm Loan Board been has providing valuable support to farmers in Nova Scotia. Our goal is to foster the development of sustainable agriculture and agri-rural businesses in Nova Scotia through responsible lending.
FarmNEXT encourages new farmers to begin farming in Nova Scotia. If you're ready to start a commercial farming venture (with minimum annual sales of $10,000), the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture is ready to help you.
Applications will be considered from both existing producers and new prospective farmers for a variety of projects including, but not limited to farm acquisitions (i.e. farms as going concerns), land purchases, construction/improvement of buildings and rural agri-businesses development.
