Many people don’t realize that several of our Ag lenders have personal experience operating family farms; a few of them have degrees in Agribusiness as well.

Why should this matter to you? 

Because it means that our lenders fully understand the challenges and opportunities present in an Ag operation.  They can relate, because they’ve been in your shoes. Consequently, they’ll do their best to match you up with Ag lending and banking solutions designed to help farm operations succeed. 

After all, the success of our local farmers is critical to the success of our communities.

From equipment and livestock loans to farm real estate loans for purchasing land or improving existing buildings, we offer a variety of terms with fixed or variable interest rates.
We also partner with Farm Service Agency (FSA) to provide joint financing for the purchase of farmland, or to refinance current debt or expand your farming operation when conventional financing terms are not an option.  If you’re a first-time borrower, you may even qualify for the Beginning Farmers Program through our FSA partnership. Of course certain limitations apply, so it’s best to stop by or contact one of our Ag lenders to determine what solution is right for you.
