By purchasing a refrigerated van I can deliver Bhumi Farms vegetables into NYC. My farm is in a summer area and after Labor Day about 85% of potential customers leave and Farmer's Markets close. A refrigerated van will allow me to get fresh wholesome vegetables into the city without any wilting that normally happens when I have tried to deliver to NYC in thje past. By extending the selling season, Bhumi Farms can grow its revenues by 25%-30%.

We intend to use this money to purchase bred cows and yearling heifers, in order to expand our grass-fed beef operation. We will be able to re-pay the loan through the sale of those calves, after which we will benefit from keeping the cows for many years and multiple calves in the future.
