Disaster loans available for Carlton County farmers

Minnesota farmers affected by the recent flooding can also take advantage of a zero-percent disaster loan program offered by the Minnesota Rural Finance Authority (RFA). The program helps farmers cover flood cleanup, repair and replacement costs not covered by insurance.

The loans can be used to help clean up farm operations, repair or replace farm structures and replace seed, other crop inputs, feed and livestock or repair and restore farm real estate damaged by flooding.
