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. We try to time our births on the farm for warmer weather, and will purchase cows with an April or May calving date. In addition, we currently have 4 steers that will be ready to process in June, all of which...

Dumbwaiters must be installed by licens...
