Partner to the Agricultural Industry
Yankee is committed to providing a reliable source of credit to the farming industry. Our portfolio is concentrated in dairy and timber because these commodities drive tour territory's farm economy, but we also extend credit to virtually all types of agricultural businesses in our chartered territory.
"The Best Deal in Town"
As a customer-owned cooperative, Yankee is committed to providing our customers with the best value in the marketplace: excellent rates, knowledgeable loan officers and the opportunity to share our earnings.
