The FCS Commercial Finance Group is dedicated to the food and agribusiness industry. Since the group's inception in 1995 we have closed on several billion dollars in financing to companies in a wide-variety of industries including those that grow fruit, vegetables, and timber; raise cattle, hogs, and poultry; support rural America's electric and telecommunications infrastructure, and process fruit, grain, meat, milk, and timber into value-added products.
Our staff of professionals keeps current on trends in agriculture and finance and understands the cyclical nature of commodity markets. We have worked through economic and industry cycles with our clients and have earned the respect of our peers for how we conduct ourselves in the market. We lend money to both private and public companies; those that are unrated as well as rated.
Farm Credit System Strength
We are part of the Farm Credit System which carries an AA+ debt rating and has been financing agriculture and rural development since its inception in 1916. The System's financial strength provides us with consistent funding at competitive rates.
