Crop Insurance: 606 Policies
Crop insurance is a risk management tool that is used to put a safety net under cash income. When production is low or harmful weather such as floods, drought, or hail occur, it can damage or potentially destroy your crop. Crop insurance plans protect farmers so that they can financially meet both their personal and business obligations, no matter what happens.
Farm Credit EXPRESS: $40.6 Million Loan Volume
Horizon Farm Credit started this program in 2000 which enables local equipment dealers to offer convenient financing or leasing options to their customers while at their location. It is now being offered by 20 Farm Credit associations.
Farm Credit System
The Farm Credit system was founded in 1916 to provide America’s farmers, ranchers and rural communities with reliable and consistent credit. Today, there are nearly 80 independently operated Farm Credit organizations across the country and Puerto Rico, each providing financial assistance to their local communities. Our cooperative structure ensures that our customers are also our owners, allowing them access to our unique profit sharing program, known as patronage.
