Serving Rural Communities and Agriculture: More Than Financing

Asset 2.png
​GreenStone understands serving rural communities and agriculture means more than financing, and as such, our commitment extends beyond providing financial services. We work to support our communities and actively demonstrate our efforts through time, resources, and financial contributions.​

To fulfill our Farm Credit mission of sustaining the rural communities we serve, GreenStone’s outreach and engagement involvement targets four focus areas: 

  1. Agriculture Advocacy, Customer and Industry Relations, and Producer Leadership Development and Education 
    Industry support is an important part of our broader mission in rural America. We advocate for agriculture by connecting the value of farming and our customers to the non-farm public and key stakeholders, along with supporting causes that further develop relationships with our members.

  2. Young, Beginning, and Small Farmers
    By investing in projects and programs that help remove financial barriers and provide educational opportunities for those developing a career in the industry, and to those sustaining diversity through initiatives such as urban agriculture, we can assist the roles these individuals play in sustaining rural communities and agriculture.

  3. Youth Education and Agriculture Awareness
    We aim to help educate future generations and develop industry leaders in agriculture and rural communities through supporting youth educational programs, financial contributions, volunteer efforts, and financial resources and training programs.

  4. Rural Community Engagement
    To enhance and impact the quality of life in the rural communities we serve, GreenStone provides support to local and regional organizations whose efforts are aimed at building vibrant communities where we work and live in the following categories: health and wellness, hunger and nutrition, local disaster relief, sustainability and the environment, and human services. Through this focus area, we will partner with our members, and the public, to make a positive impact and fulfill our mission to service rural America through our new Member Grown Outreach program.

Being involved in the industry and our communities is a commitment we continue to make to the rural life we all value. Our hope is these investments will provide a meaningful difference in addressing the challenges you, our customers, face and improve the quality of life in your surrounding area.
