Our main priority is to improve the means and well-being of farmers, ranchers, and rural life in the Texas Panhandle.
Located in Amarillo, Pampa, Perryton, and Plainview, each of our bank branches serves residents from multiple counties. Our seasoned agricultural lenders are ready to help you find financing that suits your real estate needs.
Plains Land Bank was created as part of the Federal Farm Loan Act of 1916 to increase credit for rural family farmers. The act was signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson. Since the beginning, the National Farm Loan Association acted as a cooperative meaning the borrowers also owned shares of the association. We are a cooperative that operates under the Farm Credit Systems. Not only do customers enjoy competitive interest rates, but they also own shares of the association.
To showcase our commitment to rural communities and agriculture, we designed the Young, Beginning & Small (YBS) Loan Program. Through the initiative we support farmers who are just starting out and help them achieve their dreams faster. To qualify as a “young borrower,” you need to be a farmer, rancher, or producer age 35 or younger.
A “Beginning Borrower” has 10 or less years of agricultural experience, while a “Small Borrower” earns less than $250,000 in annual gross sales of agricultural or aquatic products.

OUR COMMITMENT TO SERVE
Our mission of “Helping People Own a Piece of Texas” in good times and in bad, is just that. Plains Land Bank sets itself apart by providing in-depth knowledge and expertise in agriculture and rural residence lending through personalized service when our stockholders need it most.

At Plains Land Bank, our staff is dedicated to serve our stockholders and seek customized financial solutions. The year 2022 would prove no different as challenges continued to progress throughout the world economy and impact all facets of agriculture. Commodity market volatility, supply chain and essential product inventory disruptions, regional drought, an historic increase in inflation and a rapid rise in interest rates would create a an unpredictable and uncertain environment for all our stockholders.
The agriculture industry has long displayed resilience, heart and dedication in producing and providing the world with food, fiber and fuel. The Texas Panhandle and you our stockholders, set the example for all to follow as you continue your long history of success in the face of adversity.
Despite the challenges faced in 2022, thanks to our stockholders and our dedicated team of employees, Plains Land Bank enjoyed a year of strong portfolio growth, while also maintaining excellent credit quality. Record earnings resulted in the board’s decision to issue the largest all-cash patronage in the history of this association. We continue to work hand in hand, improving efficiencies through technology, to deliver personalized services to quickly meet the needs of these uncertain times. As we have for over 100 years, Plains Land Bank will be here so that together we can help continue the legacies that you tirelessly work to pass on to future generations.
