Nestled in the foothills of North Carolina sits Knob Creek Orchard, owned and operated by Jeff Crotts. At Knob Creek, they grow apples, peaches, strawberries, blackberries and blueberries. 

“Well, I’ve always borrowed money from Farm Credit. As a matter of fact, I’ve never borrowed money anywhere else. It’s the only bank I’ve ever gone to.” 

Jeff attests that Farm Credit has always understood the needs of the orchard and the changing of the markets. He is also an avid customer of the Farm Credit Express program. The Farm Credit Express program allows his operation to quickly finance and access equipment for the farm.
