Farm Share Loan


Enjoy great local produce while building your credit!

Here at UMassFive, we’re a big fan of eating local, and making the freshest produce accessible to everyone that wants it.

That’s why we’ve developed a special interest-free loan that allows you the ability to finance an individual share at any local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm over a six month term.

There’s no hidden cost to you or to the farmers, just the fresh produce you want every week without the burden of paying for it all up front. Without any interest, it’s an easy way to keep your credit score healthy too!

If you’re not familiar with any nearby farms, check out CISA’s online guide to local food and farms at
