American AgCredit borrowers are more than just customers. They’re customer-owners and members of the cooperative. Let our more than 100 years of expertise in agriculture lending help you. Our knowledgeable team can craft specialized financing solutions for wineries and vineyards, so you can focus on the business of growing grapes and making wine.
Who We Are
For more than a 100 years, we have provided loan, lease and crop insurance products, each customized to the unique needs of your growing business. We are a member-owned cooperative that supports all segments of agriculture including the wine industry with reliable, consistent credit and financial services. Our range of financial services includes farm loans, farm mortgage loans, equipment loans, livestock loans, first time farmer loans and operations loans, as well as crop insurance and farm credit leasing programs.
We are a part of the Farm Credit System, a nationwide agricultural network that serves rural America by providing credit and affiliated services to the wine industry, farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses. Overall, the Farm Credit System supplies the nation’s agricultural industry with nearly one third of its credit needs.
The American AgCredit Difference
We’re much more than an ag bank — we are a member-owned co-op, and with that comes benefits you won’t find elsewhere. As customer-owners, our borrowers are able to share in our earnings, which is paid out in the form of an annual cash patronage. When you succeed, we all succeed. We issued a 1 percent cash patronage distribution for 2022, resulting in a record $185.7 million cash back to our members. Find out more about our cash patronage program.
