Farming and Agribusiness

Every day they're at work, outside downtown – on the farm, the heart of our communities. As the number one agricultural bank lender in Illinois, First Midwest has been the bank in our rural communities long enough to know farming and to know that farmers and the businesses that support them are in it for the long haul. They have to be. Seasonal operating and capital investment cycles require it.

We understand the distinct financing and cash flow management needs of this industry.

  • First Midwest agriculture loans and financing strategies take full advantage of available federal and state financing programs, yet they are flexible enough to meet each farmer’s individual situation.
  • Our cash management services are designed to make the most efficient use of funds throughout the huge periodic inflows and outflows that are a normal part of the business.

From as far west as Muscatine County, Iowa to the eastern border of Jasper County, Indiana – and all points in between – First Midwest has you covered with a full range of both business and retail banking and trust and investment management services through some 100 locations in 65 communities.

Our long-term goal for agriculture clients is the same as for any other business. We believe in steady growth that leads to productive, debt-free operations with the financial strength to take care of families, jobs and the land for generations to come.
