Rural America's Financial Partner since 1916!
On July 17, 2016, the Farm Credit System will have been serving America's rural communities for 100 years, but more importantly, we're looking forward to serving you for 100 more. We are kicking off our celebration this year and we hope you will join us in revisiting our history while looking forward to the future!
Farm Credit has a long, rich history. We have stood the test of time and fortified our reputation as a stable and reliable financial institution, continuing to fulfill our mission through the Great Depression, the 1980's agricultural crisis, and the most recent financial market collapse of 2008. Because of our cooperative ownership and our unwavering commitment to rural communities and agriculture, that legacy continues today.
In 2016, Farm Credit is commemorating its centennial anniversary. This is an achievement reached by few, and it comes at a time when Farm Credit's role is as important as ever.
