Description:

This product is designed for the development of Nova Scotia farm production where a long-range approach to cash flow generation is required. A deferred loan structure has been developed for: apple orchards, high bush blueberry development, low bush blueberry land clearing development, mink ranch expansions and general cash flow situations that require a principal deferment to help a farm manage its cash situation.


Comments on Funding:

The applicant will pay interest and other fees, if applicable.
The NSFLB will consider applications for established producers with interest only payments for up to 5 years or a complete payment deferral on a major portion of the loan for 3 years.
