Everyone has a passion; something they absolutely love to do. For the Hart family, it’s feeding the surrounding communities with high-quality meat at great prices. Starting on a small hobby farm in Norwood Young America, MN, their interest inraising and processing steers turned into purchasing a butcher shop from a local family in New Germany, MN called Schroeder Meats.

Schroeder Meats is a custom meat processing business which means you can purchase the animal from a local farmer to process for your own consumption. The best part is if you don’t know of a local farmer, no problem!Schroeder Meats

HomeTown Bank worked closely with Kelly and Jeremy throughout each stage of the purchase process, from the pre-approval letter through closing on the property. When the Hart family came in to meet with Danielle, she immediately wanted to get to know them and their goals. From there, she worked with the family every step of the way to offer the best loan option for what they wanted to achieve. In the end, Danielle and the HomeTown Bank Waconia team provided a great conventional loan option to not only make their dream come true of buying the business but also help with personal finances.

“[Danielle and HomeTown Bank] were a great partner to have on board. They helped us every step of the way and provided us with options we could do to help us get this across the finish line.” Jeremy expressed.

With HomeTown Bank’s boutique-style commercial loan process, our lenders are sometimes able to create a conventional commercial loan rather than looking into SBA financing or other alternative financing routes. When you meet with a lender, you’ll talk about comfortable payment amounts and collateral options which help your lender at HomeTown Bank structure your financing. In the end, your lender will always want what is best for you, supporting you every step of the way.
