The Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce held a Ribbon-Cutting ceremony to celebrate AgHeritage Farm Credit Services’ new location.

AgHeritage Farm Credit Services (FCS) operates nine branch locations and serves over 6,400 customer-owners, with owned and managed assets of approximately $2.46 billion as of December 31, 2023. Since its establishment in 1916, FCS has fostered enduring partnerships with agriculture and rural America. They have been instrumental in helping America’s farmers and rural communities thrive by offering a range of financial services. These services encompass rural re-financing, rural home financing, operating loans for business expenses, equipment loans, and agribusiness financing. AgHeritage is an association within the Farm Credit System that operates in all 50 states.

Bo Tretenburg, FCS Regional Manager, remarked, “With our move to the new office, we show our commitment to this community and the customers we serve. We look forward to continuing to serve our existing loan members and establishing new relationships.”

“We’ve been here over twenty-five years. We are excited to be in Batesville—it is a beautiful area. This area in agriculture is some of the best in the state,” said FCS President and CEO Greg Cole. “It’s really grown here in Arkansas. We have collected a loan volume in the farm credit system of around 7 billion dollars. We are the largest ag lender in the US as well as Arkansas, with 100 million in volume at the office here in Batesville. We’ve seen tremendous growth here. Our people all have something in common: they love agriculture, rural America, and serving others. So glad to be a part of the community here and to be able to contribute to the economy.”
