AgFirst Farm Credit Bank, headquartered in Columbia, South Carolina, provides funding and financial services to 19 Agricultural Credit Associations in 15 eastern states and Puerto Rico. These associations, operating as Farm Credit and Ag Credit associations, provide real estate and production financing to 80,000 farmers, agribusinesses, and rural homeowners. It was formed by the merger of the Farm Credit Bank of Baltimore and the Farm Credit Bank of Columbia in 1995.[1]

AgFirst is part of the Farm Credit System, a nationwide network of agricultural and rural lending institutions cooperatively owned by their borrowers. Farm Credit helps maintain and improve the quality of life in rural America and on the farm, through its constant commitment to competitive lending, expert financial services and a feeling of partnership with its customers.
