    Farm Credit East has been a partner to Northeast agriculture, commercial fishing and forest products for more than 100 years.

At Farm Credit East’s 2018 Customer Appreciation Meetings, we showcased some of the ways staff are involved in supporting Northeast agriculture and rural communities with more than just credit and financial services.
