Yankee Farm Credit – Why Work For Us?


WHY MAKE YANKEE FARM CREDIT A PARTNER IN YOUR OPERATIONS?

DEDICATED TO AGRICULTURE IN GOOD TIMES AND BAD
Yankee Farm Credit is part of the national Farm Credit System, the number one lender to U.S. agriculture and Rural America since 1916. For more than 100 years, we have been a reliable source of credit to farmers – in good times and bad.

LOCAL DECISIONS
Nearly all loan decisions are made right in your local office, not in some distant office in Boston, Buffalo or New York City.

AG-BUSINESS EXPERTS
Your Yankee Farm Credit loan officer is a professional who knows the ins and outs of agricultural businesses, and makes a point to thoroughly understand your business and its financial needs.

ONE-STOP SHOPPING
Yankee offers additional services tailored to the needs of people in agriculture: tax preparation and planning, financial record keeping, business consulting, appraisals, equipment leases, credit life insurance and more.

ON-FARM SERVICE
Yankee Farm Credit loan officers and financial service experts come right to your place of business, walk your property and observe your operation, just to learn about your business and to provide the best possible service.

COMMITTED TO THE AG COMMUNITY
Yankee proudly sponsors of dozens of agricultural, community and civic activities including: FFA, Northeast Ag Enhancement Program, 4H, University of Vermont Dairy Products Resource Center, New England Dairy Compact, Vermont Dairy Industry Association, UVM Extension System, and Farm Bureau.

MONEY AT A FAIR PRICE
As a borrower-owned cooperative, Yankee is committed to providing the best value in the marketplace. Our rates are very competitive and we structure our terms to match your cash flow. In fact, we invite you to compare our rates with those of other commercial lenders.

OWNERSHIP HAS ITS PRIVILEGES
When you become a Yankee Farm Credit borrower, you become a member of a financial cooperative with stockholder voting rights and an opportunity to share in the distribution of patronage dividends. These dividends are based on interest, or "patronage," accrued by members to the cooperative and returned to borrowers following the end of every calendar year in which our net earnings meet objectives.
