My Bank for life.

  
 
  • When I need a loan, I just pick up the telephone and they get all the paperwork ready for me with no hassles. I especially like that I can have my payment automatically deducted from my Farmers Bank checking account.

  • I am greeted with a genuine smile and an “I’m glad to see you” comment when I do my banking at The Farmers Bank. For over 60 years The Farmers Bank has served my family with various types of accounts, giving us the financial expertise to meet our needs.

  • I have banked at The Farmers Bank for 50 years. My Grandfather owned Aughe Brother's Drug Store. During the Great Depression, he deposited what funds he could every day. He had faith in The Farmer's Bank. When I go to the bank, I am greeted by name. That's one of the benefits of a local bank.
