Interest Rate Programs
Nobody knows as well as we do how difficult it can be with traditional banks to find the loan program that can work with the flow of your crop cycles and fit your changing financing needs. Bank programs are made more for “traditional” business models but they often don’t fit yours. Isn’t it funny how the most deeply rooted tradition – farming and ranching – somehow no longer fits in the ‘traditional’ banking world?
We know how your ag business constantly changes, so our loan programs are as flexible as possible to fit your financial needs in every season. Whether you’re buying land for production or construction, installing irrigation systems or need to cover your accounts receivable, we have a program designed to help your business grow.
Our fixed-rate, adjustable and variable rate mortgage loans have options tailored to your specific needs. Use a long term loan for:
- Vineyard and Orchard development
- Real estate purchase and improvement
- Home construction and purchase
- Packing and storage facilities
- Water development and irrigation projects
- Debt refinancing
You can free up your capital with intermediate-term loans with maturities of up to 10 years. These loans can be used for:
- Production and processing equipment purchases
- Building repairs or improvements
- Construction development
- Development of permanent plantings
- Debt refinancing
- Timber/Land purchase
For your day-to-day operating needs, short-term financing can be just the solution, and is available as budgeted loans or revolving lines of credit with maturities of one to four years. Use these loans for:
- Crop production and harvest expenses
- Livestock and feed purchases
