How Colonial Farm Credit will continue to serve you

Colonial Farm Credit is taking steps to keep our member-borrowers and employees safe, and our systems and services running, in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19). Our mission is to be a secure funding source for rural America and we take that mission very seriously.

Our offices remain open to serve you, and our products and services are fully available. We do encourage you to take advantage of our Account Access online resources available at www.colonialfarmcredit.com or use the Colonial Farm Credit mobile app.

We are also:

  • Increasing our supplies of disinfecting products, and implementing enhanced sanitizing and cleaning protocols at all of our branch locations.
  • Supporting our customers and employees who are at-risk or have special needs.
  • Monitoring the financial markets and discussing options for member-borrowers to meet their changing financial needs. 
  • Limiting business-related employee travel until further notice and using teleconference capabilities instead.
  • Modifying, postponing or cancelling large meetings.
  • Enhancing our risk monitoring and management protocols.

You can find the latest information on the coronavirus and ways to limit your risk of infection by calling the CDC hotline at 1-800-232-4636 or by visiting www.cdc.gov/covid19.

As always, our highest priorities are the health and safety of our member-borrowers and employees, as well as the communities we serve. If there is anything that we can do to assist you, please do not hesitate to reach out to your local office. 

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
