Farm Banking FAQ's

What is Farm Banking?

Farm banking generally refers to banking with a rural or agricultural bank (sometimes called an AG bank). It is a bank that specialises in financial services and products for farmers, growers and agribusinesses in Australia. Farm banking can mean a wide range of financial tasks or services, including managing finances, business investments, securing financing, and financial activities to grow the business.

What Makes Farm Banking Different?

There are some critical differences between rural banks and commercial banks, though anyone can bank with either type of institution. Rural banks are more focused on supporting farming and agribusiness through financial activities, while the main goal of commercial banks is to generate profits for their shareholders.

What is the Best Bank for Farmers in Australia?

Which bank will be best for you and your agribusiness will be determined by a variety of factors. There is no one farm banking solution that works for every farmer or grower. Agricultural businesses are part of a complex industry and finding the best farm banking solution requires specialist experience. SproutAg have both the financial experience and the background in rural communities to provide helpful rural bank insights and advice tailored to your needs.

Why is Farm Banking Important?

Farm banking for farmers and agribusinesses is important as there can be a very real disconnect between lenders and farming communities.

Farm banking solutions look at various banks and their financial products to connect rural customers with banks or lenders who:

- understand the financial situation of farmers and growers
- prioritise financing agribusinesses and contributing to a sustainable agriculture industry
- take a strong focus on climate change and environment sustainability

Many people falsely presume that a standard banking options will suffice when it comes to supporting farmers and agribusiness. However, it can be difficult to manage and obtain finance for these businesses, both large and family-owned, with only a very limited number of financial institutions having the specialist knowledge required.

But fortunately, such financial institutions do exist, and they’re easy to contact and work with – as long as you know which organisation to put your trust in. This is where SproutAg comes in! Our team specialises in assisting farmers and agribusiness owners throughout the application process, from finding the right finance options to navigating the approval process and more.
