Zions Ag Finance: Offering financial solutions since 1873

With nearly 145 years of lending experience, Zions Agricultural Finance (Zions) offers long-term fixed rate financing solutions for agriculturalists throughout California.

As a division of Zions Bancorporation, N.A., and a member of FDIC, Zions provides land loan financing for farm and ranch acquisitions, refinancing existing debt and financing for capital expansion. Zions also has the proud distinction of being one of the nation's largest originators of secondary ag real estate loans.

"Our goal is to provide customizable real estate loan products to fit our clients' individual needs," explained Marilyn Love, Vice President of Business Development of the California office. With over 25 years of lending experience, Marilyn has been a part of Zions Ag Finance for two years and serves the region's farmers and ranchers with their Real Estate financing needs.

Agricultural properties serviced throughout the state include row crops, orchards, wineries, cold storage and processing facilities, as well as multi-purpose land. Zions also services rural home properties such as homes on an orchard or vineyard, grazing land, equestrian facilities and hobby farms.

"Whether you own a large farming operation, or are simply looking to purchase a hobby farm, we [Zions] offer various loan options to maximize our clients' savings and business potential," said Marilyn. "Through providing long-term fixed rates, paired with low interest fees, our clients are able to inject money back into their operations and families."

As Zions continues to expand their customer base, Marilyn felt that it was important to partner with county Farm Bureau organizations, including Fresno County Farm Bureau, to share further information on their financial offerings with local farmers and ranchers. The company understands that producers have different needs depending on what part of the state they are located in.

"Zions became a Friends of the Family Farm premium member to share the great products that the company has to offer," said Marilyn. "Farmers and ranchers work tirelessly to provide nutritional food and fiber, and we feel that is important to do everything we can to provide both stability and flexibility when it comes to their financial needs."
