Farmers bring food to our tables, and at PeoplesBank, we believe these hard-working people deserve our support. In fact, since we opened our doors more than 150 years ago, we’ve been working hard to provide agricultural banking in Pennsylvania and Maryland. Decades ago, we were offering services with a handshake, and today we provide equipment and livestock loans across the region. A handshake with a smile is still part of the transaction.
While our focus on farmers has not changed, the industry has changed a lot. Today, farm businesses and agricultural businesses are modern and high-tech. Farm equipment loans are likely to be used for the latest pieces of engineering, and today’s businesses need to focus closely on food safety, yield, prices and value. We understand this, which could be why we’ve been named Agricultural Business of the Year by the York County Pennsylvania Agriculture Business Council.
“We switched to PeoplesBank 40 years ago and we haven’t looked back.” – John Thompson, Owner of Thompson Farms

If you’re interested in financing the purchase of property, the land loan you receive will depend on factors such as how you intend to use the land and where you’re buying it.
Agricultural property and real estate are at the center of any farm business. Farmland financing refers to customized loans designed for ranchers, farmers and rural landowners and can include both agricultural land and farm loans.
