When it comes to making profits as a small farmer, we understand that the littlest things can make the biggest difference.
At Alabama Ag Credit, we are proud to provide additional support for small farmers with our Farm Market Vendor Voucher Program. This program helps to pay vendor fees and reduce the barrier of entry for small farmers to sell directly to the consumer.

- One vendor fee will be paid to the certified farmer's market of your choosing per year
- Up to $100 if you are not a borrower of Alabama Ag Credit
- Up to $300 if you are a borrower of Alabama Ag Credit
- Checks will be sent directly to the farmer's market
