Farm Credit

Farm Credit associations are part of a national network of independently operated and cooperatively owned lenders dedicated to meeting the needs of agriculture and rural America. Patrons own and control the local institutions, which provide credit and other financial services to farmers, rural businesses, and those living in rural areas. Farm Credit retailers provide the majority of agricultural lending services for farmers.
