Founded in Ag Lending, Honoring our Roots
High Plains Bank has been rooted in agriculture since the bank's founding in 1908. We know first hand what it is like to be unsure of what Mother Nature will bring, or how the markets will move. We are here to support our customers through the good times and the challenging ones.
High Plains Bank is a rock solid partner for your farm or ranch business, whether you are starting out, or have been in the industry for generations. We understand the risk in today's agriculture environment and believe every farmer and rancher should have access to capital and purchasing power at every part of the season. Our Ag Lending team, with a combined 100 years of production experience, will work with you to ensure a smooth and timely financing process so you can stay focused on the field.
I can't express my admiration enough for High Plains Bank. The entire staff consistently goes the extra mile for their customers. Many of the staff members we've come to know since we began banking there are still on board and have become our friends. We've enthusiastically referred many individuals to High Plains Bank, and the only feedback we've received is that they wish we had introduced them sooner! High Plains Bank's decision-making is grounded in common sense, and they possess a comprehensive understanding of various sectors, including agricultural business, equipment, and real estate.
