Partner Perks

Terms & Conditions

We’re thrilled to offer Partner Perks and hope many of you will take advantage of this chance to reinvest in your local business ecosystem. Please take a moment to read the eligibility requirements below: 




summer Farm Dividend

What is it?

The Summer Farm Dividend is a Grow Local account credit of up to $100 for you to use at local farms, farmers markets, or related businesses across New England and New York. It’s a time-bound promotion (which we may – at our discretion – renew annually). 

We’re using the term “dividend” in this context because it ties back to our roots as a mutual (where a portion of profits are paid back to the community of owners), but be aware that, technically speaking, this is not a dividend; instead, it’s a time-bound promotion subject to renewal by the bank at its discretion.


Anyone with a Grow Local account in good standing with us is welcome to use the Summer Farm Dividend as long as the account is:

Each qualified partner (as identified by Social Security Number or Tax ID Number) is eligible for a single Summer Farm Dividend regardless of the number of accounts they may have open. Jointly-held accounts owned by two separate partners are eligible for a single Summer Farm Dividend, to be used jointly by the account holders. Accounts for individuals (i.e. Grow Local accounts and Local Impact CDs) are the only eligible account type (i.e. Grow Local Business accounts and loans are ineligible).

Key Dates:

On June 21, 2024 we will review all of our active Grow Local accounts to see who is eligible. If you qualify (based on the criteria laid out above), we’ll send a notification to the email on your account within the following 14 days. Starting from June 21, 2024 you will have until September 21, 2024 to take part.


There are two steps:

Eligible Businesses:

Farms and farmers market, and “related businesses”. Related businesses are local businesses that resell goods you might otherwise buy from a farm or farmers markets. This could be your neighborhood co-op, a local general store that sells small-batch food goods, or an online marketplace that delivers pasture-raised meat products from farms within your region.

If your preferred business is outside of New England and New York, but is local to you, no problem! We're happy to support business everywhere that align with our mission.

If you have a question about a local business you love, send us a note! We’re happy to help.  

As we add additional categories of Partner Perks (beyond cashback), we'll update these terms & conditions accordingly!
