Operating Loans

  • We offer personalized revolving lines of credit to help finance seasonal and cyclical requirements specific to your farming operation.
  • With an operating loan, you can take advantage of cash discounts, lock in your input prices by paying ahead, and receive tax benefits by prepaying expenses.
  • Also available, with a line of credit, is our “one of a kind” actual cash flow program.* The cash flow program links your line of credit and farm checking account, and will provide an actual monthly accounting of your income and expenses.

Equipment Loans

  • We offer competitive interest rates and repayment terms.

Real Estate Loans
