First South Farm Credit is the Farm Credit System's largest lending institution in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi, and the only institution offering uninterrupted loans and financial services since 1933.

First South offers loans to purchase, finance, and refinance land and timber, hunting and recreational property, loans for land improvement, construction of ponds, and lakes.

First South offers long-term land loans. We also provide short and intermediate-term loans for agribusiness and agricultural production.
