At Rivers Edge Bank, we know our local farmers are firmly rooted in their communities. More than that, they are committed to the production of crops and livestock that help nourish our neighbors. As a team of locally owned rural banks, our roots run deep in the communities we serve, as well. Farmers are our friends and neighbors, and we share the same commitment to growth within our communities. That’s why we listen and learn from our farmers and help give them the tools they need to grow their operations.
We recognize farmers are the lifeblood sustaining the small towns we serve, so we do our best to return the favor with agriculture banking solutions and resources to support the ventures of our rural residents. Because we are so ingrained in our communities, we know how to help farmers succeed. That’s the advantage of small-town banking with big-time business sense from our team members who know you by name. When you bank with Rivers Edge, you’re not only building your business — you’re reinvesting in the community we all call home.
With all of the resources but none of the red tape of a corporate bank, Rivers Edge Bank runs on our relationships with local farmers. Manage your finances easily from your phone, and enjoy the convenience of making a deposit from the field and performing payroll at your fingertips. From savings accounts and debit cards to business management and mobile banking, we offer the same time-saving solutions as a larger bank but with a friendly face on standby if you need us. Best of all, banking locally with Rivers Edge keeps money in the community, so everybody benefits.

Learn More About Online Banking
Our small town roots allow us to center the needs of our agricultural community, propelling big ideas forward and fueling passion projects for our farmers. From loans for equipment and farmland to special funding for drone technology and exclusive crop genetics research, we finance the future. Because we understand the business of farming, we’re able to accommodate unique requests to best support the farmers sustaining our community. Unlike the hierarchies at corporate banks, we don’t have to run in circles to get things done—we take the time to listen and learn what you need and get you a response quickly.
Agriculture Operating Line of Credit
An agriculture operating line of credit essentially provides a steady stream of cash to cover the everyday expenses of your farm as they add up throughout the year. From seed and fertilizer to harvest and livestock expenses, an operating line of credit can be a lifesaver to sustain your business when you need to keep moving and make decisions quickly in the off season. Loan advances can be set up automatically, done online or by calling your banker for payment.
Agriculture Loans for Equipment (New & Used)
Rivers Edge Bank is committed to providing the necessary resources to purchase the equipment you need to be successful. If it has a serial number, we can finance it for you, and we don’t charge refinancing fees or prepayment penalties on loans for equipment. We don’t want anything to hold you back from meeting your farm’s full potential, so allow us to build a loan term that works best for you, including your choice of monthly, bi-annual or annual payments with predictable fixed rates up to five years.
Agriculture Loans For Operations
For long-term investments, like funding a new hog barn or machine shed or expanding into new real estate, traditional agriculture loans provide the funds you need upfront to get the job done. Best for strategic business decisions rather than daily expenses, our agriculture loans have a range of repayment terms with either fixed or variable interest rates to choose from, depending on the predictability or flexibility you need. We’ll help you design a repayment plan that makes sense for you.
Other Agriculture Business Services & Resources
At Rivers Edge Bank, we recognize farming is more than a business—it’s a way of life. Crops and livestock don’t take a day off when the weather turns or the market drops, and Rivers Edge doesn’t back down from the issues farmers face beyond the bank. As an all-encompassing agriculture bank, we aim to provide the services and resources our farmers need to withstand the demands of the profession. From comprehensive crop insurance products to invaluable market data and loan calculators, we are the go-to resource for local farmers.
The federal government dictates crop insurance policy inclusions and prices for farmers across the nation, so it’s especially important to work with a local crop insurance specialist who understands the specific needs of our neighborhood farmers. From tracking important crop insurance dates to establishing a plan that works the best for your unique concerns and conditions, Rivers Edge is your reliable partner in protecting the crops that feed our communities.
