Machinery and Equipment
Our family are 4th generation Welsh Beef and Sheep Farmers. The John Deere Tractor that we have been using for the last 7 years needed replacing. We found a tractor that we liked and then approached AgriBank to see if they could help us with the financing. AgriBank was able to offer a low interest rate with good terms which met with our cash flow requirements. The paperwork was completed very quickly and we were able to take delivery the following day.

We run a fleet of New Hollands on a 400 acre mixed farm. We have a regular system of rotation for our fleet of used tractors. We met AgriBank at LAMMA15 and explained our financing requirements. One of their relationship mangers called on us the next week and structured a deal to match the timing of our cash flows. We now deal exclusively with AgriBank for all of our financing needs. They are extremely flexible and a pleasure to work with.

I am a poultry farmer based in Essex. AgriBank are financing two renewable biomass boiler schemes here at the Farm. These supply heat to a 100,000 bird broiler rearing site, two domestic/office district heating circuits, and a grain/chip drying facility. The first funding facility that I had with them was taken out in the autumn of 2014, and the second started this spring 2016. When the second facility was taken out, AgriBank were able to listen to my concerns and restructure the two loans so that my monthly payments remained within budget. We have also been against tight schedules and AgriBank were able to expedite the paperwork and payments.

Our business is to supply over 100,000 tonnes of crops and field related information to the UKs largest crop fed Aerobic Digester. This project has meant that our services of harvest, haulage and technical field and sustainability certainly has made our business learn a huge amount.
Without AgriBank we would have struggled with our cash flow and also the purchase of capital equipment vitally needed for our business. Many thanks to Frank and all his team.

Expansion and Diversification
I was looking to significantly expand my beef heard. I met Frank Sekula, AgriBank’s founder, at LAMMA last January. I was immediately impressed with his wider understanding and his “can do” attitude. This feeling has only been enhanced as we followed up that initial discussion and ended up “doing the deal”.
Everything AgriBank said they would do, they have done. Their refreshing approach with real people making considered decisions has been a revelation in itself.

I had been searching for over two years to find a lender who shared the same vision and ambition as myself, as I needed funding to convert a grade two listed barn into a centre for sustainable living. From my very first dealing with AgriBank I was impressed with their intimate and personal approach to banking and their ability to understand the needs of me the borrower, set them apart from any bank I had previously dealt with.
Without AgriBank, this project would not be moving and I am thankful to them for their help and assistance; I would definitely do business with them again.

I needed to refinance my high street bank because they did not understand my farming business because I got transferred into a call centre. I called AgriBank. They quickly understood the needs of my business and came up with an attractive package. They processed the loan application quickly and I was able to repay my high street bank without much fuss.

My Father and I farm about 175 acres used for cutting and grazing our livestock herd. The farm next door was selling some land through an auction. AgriBank was able to help us raise funds very quickly, so we were able to be in a position to make the successful bid. We found AgriBank to be extremely flexible and easy to work with.
