The Ohio Farm Bureau has endorsed Farm Bureau Bank. Farm Bureau Bank has built its entire 20-plus year existence around the lifestyle and needs of farmers and ranchers across America.

“We understand what Farm Bureau folks need and help them get that personal service you may not get from your big national bank that you’re dealing with these days,” said Will Hileman, president and CEO of Farm Bureau Bank.

Started by Farm Bureau in 1999, the bank works with more than 700 county and state Farm Bureaus across the country. It offers member-only competitive rates and membership dues reimbursement.

Whether it is for a mortgage loan, equipment loan, consumer credit card or auto loan, Farm Bureau Bank offers Farm Bureau members flexibility. For example, most of the income for a farmer in production agriculture comes in when crops are harvested in the fall. Because of unique agriculture cash flow, Farm Bureau Bank has an option for auto loans with annual payments.

“So you aren’t making monthly payments when you don’t have income coming in, you can make that annual payment when you do get that income and are able to pay your bills,” Hileman said. “We really try to tailor our products to help Farm Bureau members.”

Helping to grow traditions, give back to agricultural communities and offer financial convenience, Farm Bureau Bank is committed to assisting farmers by offering the following:

  • Deposit services.
  • Consumer cards (personal and business – spend $16,000 annually
    and your Farm Bureau membership is covered).
  • Business services.
  • Equipment, vehicle and mortgage loans.
  • HSA (Health Savings Accounts). 
Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

Strong communities
I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

Leadership development
Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
