Who we are
AgFirst Farm Credit Bank’s model is simple but powerful. We provide wholesale funding, as well as technology and other value-added services, to Association partners (local lending institutions) in 15 states and Puerto Rico. Those Associations provide loans and related financial services to rural residents and agricultural operations of all sizes. A $42 billion company, we are proud to be one of four wholesale banks within the nationwide Farm Credit System.
As a cooperative, our Association partners and their customers – the farmers and homeowners of rural America – own AgFirst and share in its profits. Our board of directors is made up of farmers and financial experts who ensure we stay closely connected with our mission in every decision we make.
What we do
AgFirst’s role in supporting Association partners is two-fold. As a wholesale bank, we ensure our Association partners have the funds they need to lend to the farmers and homeowners of rural America. Just as important is the broad range of technology and other services we provide. From cutting-edge loan systems to data-driven marketing campaigns to a vigilant cybersecurity environment, AgFirst offers shared services to keep Associations competitive and profitable, enabling them to operate with the power of a much larger institution.
