Cash Patronage Dividend
When you do business with Premier Farm Credit, you're doing business with a lender that's working for you. In early 2021, we sent $4.5 million in Cash Patronage Dividend checks to our member-owners. That means we've mailed our member-owners $68.5 million in the last 24 years!
We're able to do this because Premier Farm Credit is entirely owned by its borrowers (also called members) and we're committed to returning a portion of the Association’s annual profits back to them. While most other lenders return profits to their investors, it's the member-owners of Premier Farm Credit who share in our success. It makes perfect sense to us, since we're entirely dedicated to supporting rural communities and agriculture with reliable and consistent credit and related services - today and tomorrow.
