Farm financing comes in a variety of forms, but one of the most commonly used types of finance is called an agricultural bridging loan. This is a specialist loan which can be used by farmers and landowners to secure swift access to funds in as little as three working days.
These farm loans are extremely flexible and can be used to meet a range of short-term needs.
Take the example of livestock – for farmers wishing to take advantage of a good year, this type of agricultural finance is ideal as it can enable them to upscale the size of their herd at relatively short notice. Similarly, arable farmers needing to invest in new machinery can use agricultural bridging finance to help fund the purchase.
Brexit and Covid19 are also causing disruptions in supply and demand throughout the industry and across society as a whole, meaning desperately needed orders can be cancelled last minute and essential supplies can increase in price without warning, causing cash flow chaos to farmers who may already exist on a financial knife edge. Farm loans can be of huge benefit here, as they can be arranged very quickly, often within 72 hours.
The duration of a farm loan is usually a period of one month to two years, which a certain level of flexibility depending on the borrower’s circumstances. Of course, every farmer’s needs are different and that’s why lenders will create a bespoke package of farm financing which is tailored to their individual situation.
As such, all requests for agricultural bridging loans will be considered on a personalised, case by case basis.
