Agricultural Loans & Farming Finance

The farming industry has been put under tremendous pressure in recent years with the increasing rate of climate change, the global pandemic, population growth and the current rising costs of living threatening food security

The industry is under constant scrutiny to develop a more sustainable & innovative approach to agriculture.

The farming industry primarily relies on financial loans from businesses like Union Business Finance in the private sector. Our team of experienced finance brokers want to support farmers and those in the industry to deal with the ever-changing challenges, and plan for both the expected & unexpected costs.

What finance options are available for the farming industry?

Asset finance

Arable equipment, soil-cultivation machines, and planting machinery, amongst many other things necessary to the farming industry, can be expensive. Most farmers do not have the cash flow to support these crucial purchases, as profit margins within the industry are notoriously low.

Asset financing with Union Business Finance will give you the ability to secure the equipment you need, be that housing for cattle, combine harvesters, milking equipment or tractors. Having the proper equipment means you can farm more economically and efficiently.

Business loans

With the pressure on the farming industry to develop new technologies that make agriculture more sustainable & able to feed the rapidly growing population, your business might want to consider a business loan.

A business loan with us will help you invest in renewable energy technology, or provide the funding to invest in research and development of new farming technologies & methods that could grow more food in a sustainable & safe way.

Applying for a business loan with Union Business Finance, if you’re accepted, will provide you with the funding your business needs to make these important decisions.

Refinancing loans

Refinancing is a great way of utilising any valuable assets you already have. The farming industry is well-known for requiring a large number of heavy-duty machinery and land, all of which can be refinanced through Union Business Finance to make new developments.
