Size and Structure
AgHeritage FCS is one of four cooperative lenders in the Farm Credit organization serving the state of Arkansas who, along with several other states, are grouped together to form a district of the Farm Credit System. The Farm Credit System, a national cooperative that serves those involved in the business of agriculture nationwide, sells bonds on Wall Street to fund the System’s loans to farmers, ranchers, rural businesses, communities and homeowners. These funds are distributed down from Wall Street to Arkansas producers through a wholesale financial institution that provides funding for AgHeritage FCS and other district states. Nationally, Farm Credit is the largest single lender to the agricultural industry.
