0% loan funded August 2019
Panda Homestead is owned and operated by Arcel and Paula Dullas in Southampton County, VA. On ten acres, they growing produce - including a UPick blueberry patch - and raise livestock, which they sell at a Hampton Roads farmers market. They also welcome agri-tourism visitors at their guest house to explore sustainable agriculture and self-sufficiency. Their goal is to empower families to become self-sufficient through sustainable farming. The farm received a 0% SOIL loan in August 2019 to pay for a fence around the livestock portion of their property to ensure better safety for the animals and visitors.
