Although known for its parks and vast mountain ranges, Colorful Colorado—otherwise known as the Centennial State—has an abundance of agricultural opportunities to offer. 

With a hobby farm in Colorado, you can experience all four seasons. Don’t let this range in weather discourage you; Colorado ranks #1 in the country for cattle and calves, with 2.8 million heads of cattle in the state. If a bee farm is more of interest, you’re in luck. There are 31,000 bee colonies in Colorado producing nearly 1.5 million pounds of honey per year. 

Still brainstorming what you want your hobby farm to look like? At United Ag Lending, we would love to hear your ideas and be your trusted financial provider in helping you obtain a hobby farm loan in Colorado. 

Benefits of financing with United Ag Lending for your hobby farm loan in Colorado

Traditional lenders who don’t solely focus on agricultural loans often fail to accommodate farmers. Maybe the loan term isn’t long enough, the interest rates are too high, or the lender has a lack of understanding of the planning and funding processes that go into farming. 

That’s why we’ve created customizable loan programs made to help farmers, including hobby farmers, reach their goals. We want you to have that Colorado hobby farm as much as you do. 

Here are just a handful of the many benefits of financing your hobby farm with us:

  • Loans up to $2 million with Schedule F income allowed
  • Land value can exceed 30% of appraised value
  • Fixed 15 and 30-year terms 
  • Ability to combine multiple parcels of land under one loan (Within reasonable proximity)

Our Colorado hobby farm loan process 

The process of obtaining a hobby farm loan in Colorado contains three main steps: Consultation, Recommendations & Application, plus a Continued Resource. 

Step 1: Consultation

The loan process at United Ag Lending begins with a consultation. We’ll learn about your farming history (if any), your priorities, and your hobby farm plans. This conversation will give us the vital details we need to customize your loan program. 

This is also the step where you are invited to ask us any questions you have. 

We will discuss:

  • Your qualifications and financial standing
  • Your plans for the land
  • Our loan programs 

Step 2: Recommendations & Application 

After getting to know you and your hobby farm plans, our loan providers will give you recommendations on the loan program that matches up. 

We will crunch numbers during this step, guide you through the application process, and answer any questions you have.
