The Farm Credit System

Farm Credit of Northwest Florida is part of the national Farm Credit System which was created in 1916 to provide a reliable source of credit for the nation’s farmers and ranchers. Today, the System provides more than one-third of the credit needed by those who live and work in rural America.

Farm Credit is your local association. We are one of the largest agricultural and rural lenders in Florida and know the industry inside and out.

We are affiliated with AgFirst Farm Credit Bank in Columbia, S.C. Farm Credit member-owners have long enjoyed the benefits of doing business with local offices, where people know their business, their community and their market.

We knew then what we know today—that agriculture can be a challenging business and Farm Credit is committed to its success. Local service with national stability. We are Farm Credit – contact us today and see how we can serve you.
