How we chose Bell:

We heard about Bell through a family friend who encouraged us to switch banks because he had heard how great Bell was – especially for farmers just starting out.

How long we’ve been customers:

Since 2016

Our favorite bankers:

Definitely Darci Eggen (commercial and agricultural lender). She’s worked really hard for us, and she understands what it takes to run the operation. We really appreciate everything she’s done. We wouldn’t be able to do what we love, which is farming, without her and the team at Bell. They’ve helped make our dreams a reality.

And Becky Snyder (mortgage lender) helped us with our new home mortgage. With the farm transition, we have dealt with a lot of people at Bell, and they have always been respectful, and they work really hard for us. We’ve just found it very easy to be there.

Our favorite Bell Bank cookie:

Both of our favorite cookies are the chocolate with white chips!

Our Bell products and services:

Checking, savings, mortgage and agriculture loans

What I tell others about Bell:

Walking into Bell, it’s so much different than other banks. Everybody’s so friendly. They’re quick, and they’re knowledgeable about what the farmer is doing. Some banks don’t understand farming. But at Bell, they understand what’s going on in agriculture.

What it means to bank at a locally owned, community bank:

Being it’s a local bank, they understand more about farming and what it takes and the risks involved, and they’re willing to work with us rather than get nervous about what we’re doing. They understand what we’re up to and the aspects of farming.
