About Our Farm Land Loans
We work with you to determine the loan type available to suit your needs. Let's get started on the expansion of your operation.
Alabama Farm Credit, founded in 1916, has been providing loans to individuals to purchase or improve farmland in Alabama for over a century. As a cooperative, we provide our members' value by returning earnings in the form of cash patronage to customers based on annual profits. As a result, the more creditworthy our customers are, the better Alabama Farm Credit will perform. And that means a greater return for members.
Our cooperative was created to provide funding and expertise to rural-based borrowers investing in agricultural ventures, operations, and rural properties. Alabama Farm Credit understands the unique aspects of agricultural and rural real estate financing, and we meet the financial needs of our members by getting to know them and the nuances of each rural-based farm operation. The farmland loans we offer help farmers in a variety of ways, including:
- Loans to buy farmland
- Loans to improve existing farmland
- Loans for building new construction on your farmland
We provide financing to farmers and anyone who owns or plans to purchase a rural property. Alabama Farm Credit employees are experts in rural financing. The characteristics of agricultural and rural real estate financing are unique, as are the members who help drive north Alabama's rural economy. Alabama Farm Credit takes a personal interest in each one. We thoroughly understand all aspects of agriculture and ensure our farmland loans are customized to meet the unique needs of every client. We want to be your family's full-service agriculture lender.
Farm Land Loan Rates
Whether financing a new land purchase, refinancing a current farmland loan, or making farmland improvements, Alabama Farm Credit has a long track record of helping Alabama families with rate and term options customized for their unique requirements.
We offer a variety of loans with excellent farmland loan rates. You can apply for fixed rates for the life of the farmland loan or interim-fixed, short-term loans with variable or adjustable rates, including rate conversions - all with flexible terms and payment options. As a cooperative, Alabama Farm Credit's borrowers are also members and stockholders - the cooperative has returned more than $100 million to our stockholders over the last ten years. In addition, these payments lower your effective interest rate, and you'll get a competitive rate upfront, but your dividends positively impact this interest rate.
