Helping to keep farms growing

Farmers are the backbone of this country and our communities, feeding our nation and the world. At The Farmers Bank, we’re committed to your success. Our extensive professional farm management services and knowledgeable staff may help you improve your profitability today, and ensure that your farm is a valuable resource for tomorrow.

A unit of The Farmers Bank Investment and Trust Services Division, the professional farm management team currently manages over 5,000 acres of farmland in Indiana. Our purpose is to provide farm owners with the expertise to solve day-to-day management opportunities while optimizing net farm income.

The Farmers Bank farm management system is a tailored program to maximize the results for each landowner. We initially determine short and long term goals, and create objectives to meet those goals. After an objective is created, we make an effort to satisfy the needs of both the landowner and the farm tenant, to create long term stability.
