President's Message

My dad had a saying you may have heard as well, “Tough times never last, tough people do.”

Certainly in the agricultural industry we have seen our share of tough times- falling cattle and commodity prices, overbearing government regulations, flooding and droughts, but when you BELIEVE in something you push through those hard times because you know eventually things will get better.

Some of you have been in this industry for decades because of your passion for agriculture. Others are just beginning to build and expand on their dreams to plow, plant and produce the food, fiber and fuel to serve the world. I want you to know Farm Credit of Florida shares your passion. We have seen hard times in the agricultural financial world, yet we are still here.

As a matter of fact, this year Farm Credit celebrates our centennial. We have now supported and financed agriculture including: cattle ranchers, foresters, farmers, equestrians, citrus growers, nursery growers, producers and rural homeowners for 100 years.

Tough times never last, tough people do.

Think about that next time you are in need of financing. And if you want a lender who has been through- and understands- the ups and downs of agriculture, a lender who has a proven commitment to YOUR community, a lender who is governed by your local agricultural leaders and not some Wall Street suit, and a lender who won’t be there today and gone tomorrow, then give us a call and let us put our 100 years of experience and commitment behind you and your family. We finance Florida agriculture!

Together We Are Ag!
