Created in 1988, the Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation, or Farmer Mac, provides a secondary market for agricultural real estate mortgage loans, rural housing loans, and rural cooperative loans. As an approved lender, we offer loans through Farmer Mac’s secondary market, including:

  • Mortgages secured by first liens on agricultural real estate, including part-time farms and rural housing.
  • Agricultural and rural development loans guaranteed by USDA.
  • Loans made by lenders organized as cooperatives to finance utilities that provide electricity, telecommunications, water, and wastewater treatment services to rural areas.

American Riviera Bank knows and cares about our customers.

"Their rates are competitive and the fit is great. They knew when my loans should mature to fit my livestock cycle - you're not getting that from a national bank."
