The Farm Loan Board has been working with industry for over 100 years. We continue to be here to help you adapt to current market and economic impacts created by the pandemic.

Available loan options include bridge financing, micro loans for cash flow and small projects, and standard lending for larger projects.
The health and safety of staff and clients always remains our top priority. Please note you can still reach your loan officer during normal business hours by contacting them through phone or email. You can also contact our main line at 902-893-6506 to have your call directed.
