Farm Credit has proudly supported the men and women of rural communities and agriculture during the last century, and we appreciate the vision it takes to remain successful over time in rapidly evolving, thriving rural industries.

As we enter our 100th year, we’ve launched Farm Credit 100 Fresh Perspectives: a search to identify 100 leaders who are shaping the future of rural America and agriculture.

Among these leaders, 10 distinguished honorees will receive a $10,000 award to help further their contributions to a thriving rural America. These individuals will also be recognized at a special event in Washington, D.C., in 2016.
