Farm Credit System

Over One Hundred Years of Support

The Farm Credit System is a nationwide network of borrower-owned lending institutions and specialized service organizations. Farm Credit provides more than $191 billion in loans and $260 billion in assets to farmers, ranchers, rural homeowners, aquatic producers, timber harvesters, agribusinesses, and agricultural and rural utility cooperatives.

Congress established the Farm Credit System 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 the leader in agricultural and rural financing in the United States. In fact, we are the largest single lender to agriculture in Florida, as well as the Nation. Farm Credit of Florida is your local association. We are affiliated with AgFirst Farm Credit Bank in Columbia, South Carolina. Farm Credit borrowers have long enjoyed the benefits of doing business with local offices, where people know their business, their community and their market.
