WHY ITS SO EASY TO OWN AN OPPORTUNITY FARM W E HAVE LOTS of requests for details on Opportunity Farms. So many people want to know about the easy terms on which these farms can be bought. It's as simple as this: You make a small down payment. Then figure 6% on the unpaid balance. This is the amount you will have to pay each <year-and it covers both interest and principal payments. The table on the right shows how small the yearly payments per $1,000 of unpaid balance can be. Already we've helped many people to the ownership of fine farms. And their satisfaction in these farms is shown by the number of their friends they've encouraged to share in this opportunity! Why wait longer to get the facts about the farm you've dreamed of owning?
