Farms are small businesses.

Small businesses need capital to grow and thrive, but the nature of agriculture often puts traditional financial services out of reach for many farmers.

We're joining the national Slow Money movement to build a community of financial support around small farms in Central Virginia. By providing farms fair, nimble, and transparent access to capital we improve farmers' businesses and their livelihoods.

Slow Money Central Virginia is affiliated with the Slow Money Institute, a nationwide non-profit launched in 2009 in Boulder, Colorado and inspired by the Slow Food movement. The Slow Money Institute is dedicated to catalyzing the flow of nurture capital to local food systems, connecting investors to the places where they live, and promoting new principles of fiduciary responsibility that “bring money back down to earth.”
