A Life in Agriculture

Farming is in the blood. It’s a way of life passed on from generation to generation. We’ve been financing agribusiness and forming lasting relationships since 1916, and we’ll be here for future generations. Because family matters.

Through good times, challenging times, through every season, year in and year out we support your life in agriculture – with real estate loans and mortgage financing, equipment leasing, livestock financing, crop insurance, operation loans and more.

We invite you to see – and hear – some of our family stories straight from the farmer or rancher’s mouths. The stories here are all true, and they tell the story not only of each individual family, but also the story of American AgCredit.
