Product Description

FarmWorks endeavors to provide Nova Scotian Investors with meaningful returns on funds invested to increase viable, sustainable food production and the security provided by access to local food. Farm Works Community Economic Development Investment Fund (CEDIF) helps create new opportunities by providing subordinated debt financing for farms and food-related businesses. Production of food creates jobs on farms and throughout the food system, increases food sufficiency, keeps money in Nova Scotia, helps reinvigorate rural communities and contributes to Nova Scotia’s economy. Farm Works forms partnerships with investors and loan recipients, and augments financing provided by other lending institutions such as the Farm Loan Board, Community Business Development Corporations, Credit Unions, other Co-operatives and commercial lenders. FarmWorks promotes the benefits of investing in local enterprises and buying local products.
