Who We Are

Your Community Leaders

If you are a Florida farmer, grower, producer or food processor, you have come to the right place for your lending and leasing solutions. Are you looking for a loan to purchase agricultural real estate, livestock, machinery, vehicles or an existing agribusiness? Looking to purchase a home in the country? With nearly 100 years of experience in agricultural finance, our industry experts can help you meet your financing needs and lifestyle dreams.

Our mission is to be the premier agricultural lender throughout our territory, providing sound constructive credit to our member-borrowers. We operate under cooperative principals, providing superior customer service, and maintaining a financially strong Association in order to enhance the quality of life for people in the agricultural industry and in rural America.

A strong foundation, reliability and dependability are the cornerstones upon which the Farm Credit system is based. Every staff member believes in building long-term relationships with our members – and we invite you to join the Farm Credit of Florida family, too.

Farm Credit of Florida does something no other lender does. We share our profits with our member-borrowers. Because we are a cooperative, we operate for the benefit of our customers. This means that our profits are returned back to our member-borrowers, not to stockholders on Wall Street, like other lending institutions.

Turn to the expert in the agri-business lending business –  Farm Credit of Florida for all of your agri-business needs. We are here to help you.
