The Farm Credit System

The Farm Credit System, a nationwide network of borrower-owned lending institutions, was created to provide sound and dependable credit and related services to agriculture and rural America. For nearly 100 years Farm Credit has been serving a wide spectrum of agriculture including: part-time farmers, small, traditional producers, multi-family commercial operations and large, vertically integrated operations. 


Most Farm Credit associations provide:

  • Real Estate Financing

  • Operating Financing

  • Leasing

  • Equipment Financing

  • Real Estate Appraisals

  • Crop Insurance

Farm Credit is the nation’s largest lender dedicated exclusively to agriculture and rural communities. In order to most effectively and efficiently fulfill its mission, the Farm Credit System has established a network of specialized service organizations.  Farm Credit Foundations is one of the service organizations, with its participating Farm Credit employers agreeing to consolidate and share HR services.
