Those who choose to work the soil nurture more than the crops they harvest. They bring to life the values of hard work, honesty, generosity and family – values that we at First United Bank believe in and honor in others. It’s what we mean by The Spirit of West Texas.
We started in rural farming and ranching communities, growing our Bank right alongside our customers. Being one of the largest agricultural lenders in Texas is a good indication of our expertise in the field. First United Bank’s team of dedicated, community-oriented professionals bring a broad range of backgrounds in agriculture, real estate, business and investments.
We’re experienced in all aspects of agribusiness including:
We have experience in virtually every crop grown on the South Plains including cotton, corn, milo, peanuts, soybeans, sugar beets, wheat, and an array of fruits and vegetables.
Our lenders understand the implement and technological needs of agricultural business borrowers today. We have taken a lead role in the wide spread usage of pivot sprinklers in an effort to conserve our water and improve the efficiencies of our farmers.
Headquartered in Castro County, Texas, a county well known for its extensive cattle feeding operations, First United Bank takes great pride in its role in developing and supporting the livestock industry.
Knowledge of all governmental programs is essential to competing in the agricultural arena today. We have become a leader in utilizing all governmental programs. Additionally, we are recognized as being one of the largest FSA lenders in the State of Texas.
