We’re Farm Credit, and the way we feel about this land
goes back a long way.
We’ve helped people own it, farm it, and make it greater
than it was before. Most of us grew up on farms.
So if you need land, we’ll make you a loan with long-term
payments. The longest around.
If you need equipment, we’ll handle that too. At the lowest
possible interest rate.
And, paying us back depends on when your crop or livestock
pay you back.
So come talk to us.
Or give us a call, and we’ll come to your place where we
both can feel comfortable.
We’re your kind of people.
