About Us

Recognizing that agriculture is the primary industry of Brown County, the policy of Farmers State Bank & Trust Co. has always been to aid the farmer wherever and whenever possible. Many of the successful farmers of our community today made their start with the Farmers State Bank at a time when both the farmer and the bank were in a less than prosperous situation. Many of our customers have grown with us, with a resulting growth of the entire community. The bank has always tried to recognize the needs of local businesses as well, and many of them too have grown with us.
It will continue to be the Farmers State Bank & Trust Co.'s policy to aid where possible in the fields of agriculture, business, industry, and recreation, to better promote a well-rounded community with the resulting benefit to all.
