Local Line and Compeer Financial are pleased to announce their partnership to support local food producers in Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Compeer Financial is a member-owned, Farm Credit cooperative serving and supporting agriculture and rural communities. They provide loans, leases, risk management and other financial services throughout 144 counties in Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Compeer’s clients will receive a 15% discount on their first year’s subscription to Local Line, allowing them to more affordably market their products and manage their businesses.
Local Line’s platform will help Compeer farmers and food businesses to list and sell their products online. Customers can visit their online store, shop their products, and place an order for pick up or delivery.
“We’re excited about our partnership with Local Line because it's a modern tool that’s proven to improve operations for local producers. When local producers are successful, we all benefit, and we’re consistently looking for ways we can help them be better,” says Sai Thao, a Senior Lending Officer at Compeer Financial.
“Compeer is well known for their lending to small family farmers, so we’re thrilled to be able to partner with them, especially at a time like this, to make Local Line even more affordable. We see this partnership as a real win-win for everyone, especially the local farmer,” says Cole Jones, CEO at Local Line.
