It pays to do business with Farm Credit of Florida

One of the most important financial benefits of being a Farm Credit of Florida member-borrower is having the opportunity to share in the association’s profits - this is our patronage program. While most businesses return their profits to outside investors, Farm Credit of Florida believes in the importance of cooperative ownership. In other words, our borrowers ARE our investors, and as such, can share in our profits.

Farm Credit of Florida believes it’s important to put our profits in YOUR pockets. Ask your Farm Credit of Florida loan officer about the details of our patronage program and our diverse loan products.
