The Importance of Agriculture in Wisconsin
Wisconsin agriculture not only is a leading force in driving the state’s economy but also provides jobs to thousands of Wisconsinites and produces millions of fruits, vegetables, and (of course) dairy products each year.
According to the Department of Agriculture, the Ag industry:
- Contributes $104.8 billion annually to the state’s economy.
- Generates more than 435,000 jobs each year, making up nearly 12% of the state’s employment.
- Exports more than $3.3 billion of agriculture products to 151 different countries.
In order to help this valued industry continue to prosper, National Exchange Bank & Trust is here to lend a hand by providing financial resources, professional insights, and lending expertise.
Lending Options Available for Agriculture
National Exchange Bank & Trust offices are nestled throughout the state in small towns where the agricultural industry thrives. Our independently-owned, community bank culture is welcomed by those in the industry because we pay close attention to detail and take pride in serving new generations of family-owned businesses.
When it comes to providing lending options for the ag industry in Wisconsin, our team of experts is able to customize and develop programs to fit the specific needs of each business because, as our agriculture lenders say, “No two farmers are the same.” Our offerings are unique to accommodate many different scenarios, and although we are a local, community bank, we have the capacity and lending abilities to serve a variety of customers at different stages in their business. From the moment an agriculture professional walks through one of our doors, we are fully invested in their financial success.
Your Trusted Ag Lender
In working with the Agriculture Industry, National Exchange Bank & Trust ag lenders have more than 50 years of combined experience. And, with each and every opportunity, our team takes time to understand the business, learn about our customers, and grow with them. In fact, one of our experienced agriculture lenders, Mitch Greenfield, from the Waupun office says, “I’ve been in agriculture lending for 23 years, so I get the chance to see how generations grow. I grew up in farming, and it’s neat to see those next generations come into their own.” The next time you or your agriculture business faces an opportunity to grow, trust the lending professionals at National Exchange Bank & Trust to help guide you through to success.
