About Our Rural Land Loans
Alabama Farm Credit can finance qualifying rural land. This may include land for lake homes, hunting cabins, country retreats or renovated farmhouses.
Alabama Farm Credit, founded in 1916, is part of the Farm Credit System, a nationwide network of customer-owned financial institutions providing loans and related financial services to U.S. farmers and ranchers, farmer-owned co-ops, rural homebuyers, agribusinesses, and rural infrastructure providers. Alabama Farm Credit provides financing to help members purchase farms and rural properties, and loans for ag-related improvements and operating costs.
Owning land is the American dream. Raising a family, while sometimes challenging, can provide lasting, beautiful memories. The land you buy is a massive part of making sure those memories are lovely. The right piece of land might have that perfect fishing hole you've dreamed of, maybe a secluded area where you can hunt, or it may simply be an oasis where you can enjoy wildlife and nature with those you love. Whatever you envision as land-owning bliss, Alabama Farm Credit is the lender you can trust to provide the right loan for your land purchase.
