Farm Credit's mission is to help rural communities and agriculture grow and thrive by financing vital rural infrastructure and communication services, and providing farmers and agribusinesses with the capital they need to be successful.

The loans we make support our mission. Whether helping a young farm family begin its operation, supporting our veterans as they return home and take up farming or financing U.S. agricultural exports around the globe, Farm Credit is committed to the success of American agriculture.

Farm Credit’s mission beyond agriculture is just as important. Rural homebuyers face obstacles unknown in more urban settings, and Farm Credit provides loans tailored to these unique circumstances. Farm Credit finances companies that provide vital infrastructure to rural communities, helping bring clean water to rural families, reliable energy to farms and rural towns and broadband that connects rural America to the rest of the world. Modern infrastructure makes rural communities competitive, provides jobs and helps improve the quality of life for rural families.

While a lot has changed since we were chartered by Congress, every day Farm Credit is focused solely on its customers and our mission remains as important today as it was when we made our first loan more than 100 years ago. Farm Credit is committed to its customer-owners in good times and bad and we will honor that commitment today and tomorrow.
