For Food and Agricultural Infrastructure
The PVGrows Loan Fund offers below-market rate loans up to $250,000 to businesses that fill key gaps in the infrastructure of the Pioneer Valley local food system.
PVGrows is looking for committed entrepreneurs with well-researched plans to develop facilities or activities which expand the market for Pioneer Valley-grown agricultural products, such as post-harvest handling, processing, marketing or distribution. Priority will be given to projects developing infrastructure that benefits more than one farm.

* Are you handling, processing, marketing, or distributing local agricultural products?
