In many states, row crops like corn, cotton, peanuts, and potatoes can be a worthwhile investment for farms looking to diversify or expand.
As the nation’s premier land lender for agricultural loans and more, we like to take every opportunity we can to share our passion about agriculture. Recently, we were able to do so in a small way while at the same time supporting the local economy. When it came time to order some more business cards, we found a little company called A Fine Press in Lakeland, Florida. This small business, founded by Matthew Wengerd, is doing amazing work with their stationary and other services.
So far this year, over 1,300 wildfires have ravaged our lands and forests. Florida wildfires are a real and present danger, relevant to all landowners— whether residential, rural, or agricultural.

So we should all do our part in preventing and protecting our lands.
