Farm & Agribusiness Loans

Our roots run deep.

Farming – it’s in our DNA. Bell Bank was built by farmers and is still part-owned by the Snortland farm family today. We are committed to working alongside producers and helping you grow your business from one generation to the next. And when you’re just starting out, you can count on our experienced ag lenders to give you the support you need and advice you can trust.

We understand the agriculture industry and its demands – especially during planting and harvesting seasons – so we’ll work with your schedule, and we’re not afraid to get our boots dirty and meet you in the field. Work with one of our banking experts to identify and manage the risks in your operation, find greater stability from season to season with a long-term loan, or use shorter-term loans to increase cash flow to your farming operation.
