Thrive With First Dakota

Agriculture is like no other. It takes hard work and discipline to succeed, but there is no other business you would rather be in. At First Dakota National Bank, we understand that. Agriculture has been in our blood since we first opened our doors in 1872. And through every growing season since, we've been helping farmers and ranchers thrive in this unpredictable industry.

It's that kind of commitment to Ag that has made us one of the largest Ag Lenders in the nation. In March 1999, we became the first Preferred Lender in the country with Farm Service Agency. An accomplishment we are very excited about. Trust your Ag and Agri-Business banking needs to First Dakota National Bank.
