The Farm Credit Associations of Arkansas (AgHeritage Farm Credit Services, Farm Credit Midsouth, and Farm Credit of Western Arkansas) support rural Arkansas communities with reliable, consistent credit and financial services. As a financial cooperative, customers become member-owners and share in the profits when Farm Credit has a good year. It’s the cooperative way of doing business and Arkansas members have shared more than $269 MILLION in patronage since 1997. Members also have a voice in how the association does business by electing fellow members to serve as directors. Farm Credit finances farms, country homes, land, livestock, equipment, agribusinesses and more.
