SMIF provides loan to Featherstone Fruits and Vegetables LLC

Posted in Rushford Home & Garden

RUSHFORD, MN - Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation (SMIF) has recently approved funding from its Small Enterprise Loan Fund to Featherstone Fruits and Vegetables in Rushford.

Featherstone is a family-operated farm, owned by Jack Hedin and his family. The business was formed in 1997 to produce a range of fresh market fruits and vegetables for distribution through a 1000+ member Community Supported Agriculture program, and to natural foods retailers and wholesalers from Minneapolis and Rochester, to Chicago and beyond.

In recent years the farm has specialized in “winter storage” crops such as carrots and cabbage, which allow it to maintain sales for 10+ months of the year, and to provide full-time, year-round work.

For more information, visit www.featherstonefarm.com or call (507) 864-2400.

“We’re pleased to help Jack grow this business through our micro loan program,” notes Tim Penny, SMIF President/CEO. “Our foundation remains committed to providing resources to grow local businesses.”

SMIF provides a range of finance and management assistance services to start and grow businesses. To learn more, call Marcia Haley at (507) 455-3215, or visit www.smifoundation.org. (SMIF is an equal opportunity lender.) Funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
