About Us

Our AgStory


Cape Fear Farm Credit’s mission of being the lender of choice to all of agriculture and our rural communities is at the heart of what we do each and every day.  

Our commitment continues to be:

  • providing customer-owners with competitive rates
  • providing an exceptional customer experience
  • working with creditworthy borrowers in good and bad times
  • consistently paying patronage to our customer-owners

We service the credit needs of part and full-time farmers, as well as the mortgage credit needs of rural homeowners. Federally chartered and a part of the national Farm Credit System, we are locally owned by our customer-owners. As we work together, we can help you achieve your goals and dreams, while strengthening our communities.

We owe our success to our customer-owners and appreciate their support in helping us grow and remain financially strong. Each member has a direct impact on the Association’s continued growth and the payment of patronage. Returning a patronage refund is evidence of our commitment to our members and the cooperative principles, which make us the most reliable and trusted agricultural lender in the area.

If you are a current customer-owner, thank you for partnering with Cape Fear Farm Credit and allowing us to serve your needs. If you are a prospective customer-owner, I encourage you to contact a relationship lender closest to you as they create a financing solution that meets your needs.

We look forward to serving agriculture and your credit needs for years to come! 

Sincerely,
