Local, Long-Term Financial Partnership

A Culture for Success

Built by four generations of cheesemakers, this family-owned cheese company is undoubtedly a master of its craft. Their award-winning cheese continues to draw even greater demand—and to help fill it, our financial solutions deliver on a special recipe of its own.

“We feel very fortunate to have them as a partner. They’re local and their services are top-notch and can compete with any bank—that makes it a really good relationship.”

“Our relationship with our bank started back in the ’80s, and through the years they’ve continued to provide the innovative financial products we need. We know we can count on their commitment and the continuity of our relationship. In fact, we’ve worked with great people for over four decades,” says the co-owner. “Whether it’s at the bank or a local basketball game, they’re always open and genuinely interested in how things are going.

“As opportunities have come up for us to expand, our banker has always been able to support us. We just completed a 40,000-square-foot addition to house our new automated equipment for making additional cheeses. It’s not just the big things—they’re there for the small things, too, like cash sweeps and helping us eliminate fraud with positive pay, which help take administrative burden off our staff. Navigating and managing financials in the ag industry, and dairy farming in particular, can be challenging, so we appreciate their knowledge and expertise.”
