Equipment Loan

Farming equipment and technology are vital to a successful farming operation, but even more essential is the need for them to be reliable, work well, and be efficient.  Cape Fear Farm Credit offers financing that makes it easy to upgrade or replace equipment, so you can have the tools to feed, fuel, and clothe the world.  

Out with the Old, In with the New 

Do you find yourself wasting precious time fixing that piece of equipment... again? Does the tractor fail to start right when you need it? Is your equipment costing you revenue because of its inefficiency? It might be time to replace or upgrade. 

Whether your equipment needs to be more efficient and reliable or you need to invest in additional equipment to get the job done, Cape Fear Farm Credit can help you with financing the purchase or trade of new or used equipment. 

Looking to the Future 

Replacing, trading in, or upgrading farm equipment and technology is more than just a “want” or keeping up with the trends, although it is that too. When equipment and technology on the farm are reliable and working well, it provides added safety, peace of mind, greater efficiency, and the opportunity to grow. So, whether it is a tractor loan or financing for new cattle working facilities that you are considering, we’d love to help you.
