More than 4000 families have bought their farms on the small down payment, easy terms plan. These 4000 purchasers have now paid upwards of $10,000,000 on their contracts.

Some have even retired their contracts in full. Yes, out of current earnings! We are proud of their success! To those interested In farm ownership From time to time, tenant fanners and others have told us they planned to buy an Opportunity Farm as soon as they were able to do so.
