  • Patronage Dividends

    In 2018, Farm Credit East distributed a record $60 million in cash patronage dividends to more than 11,000 farm, fishing and forestry business owners and operators across Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island. In October of the same year, Farm Credit East distributed a one-time $15 million special patronage dividend.

    As owners of their financial cooperative, Farm Credit East customers have the opportunity to share in the financial success of the cooperative through patronage dividends.
