What makes Good2Grow so different?

The program has been designed by agriculture producers for agriculture producers.


Good2Grow focuses on quickly and simply providing the financing needed to enter or grow agriculture operations. It provides funding in a variety of ways, listed below.

But Good2Grow is about more than just capital. It offers other things emerging farmers need. Advice from local and global financial experts, people with a deep knowledge and understanding of agriculture. Indeed, each successful applicant will have access to agricultural relationship managers as well as a member of ATB's agriculture centre of expertise (ACE) team. ?


Which option is right for you?



G2G Operating Loan

Operating loan option

Whether renting or owning land, or for the cost of running your cow herd, access to a line of credit is essential. That's why the Good2Grow program offers an operating loan that isn't based on your inventory or requires hard assets for security. The full authorization level is there whenever you need it. It is a more efficient and cost effective way to cover your day to day costs versus using supplier credit. An operating loan under the Good2Grow program enables you to cover your expenses until your product is sold.

  • For cropping operating up to $175/acre
  • For cattle operations up to $500 per cow or heifer
  • Maximum is $100,000
  • For needs of $50,000 or less, the convenient Alberta Agri-Industry BusinessCard? may be used instead.

Equipment Loan

Term loan option

As you begin farming or begin to grow your operation, having the right sized, and up to date equipment is critical. We know that coming up with the down payment in the early or expanding years of farming isn't easy, that's why the Good2Grow equipment loan offers up to 100% financing with a maximum amortization period plus age of 7 years and $100,000. If you need more financing, no problem. Higher loan amounts are available but the first $100,000 still doesn't require a down payment. With a lower down payment you can use those funds to continue to grow your operation in other areas.

  • Finance total purchase up to $100,000
  • Maximum amortization up to 7 years
