About Us

For over 100 years, Mississippi Land Bank has been one of the premier lenders in rural Mississippi for land. From a homesite with a few acres to an agriculture or hunting property with a few thousand acres – we offer long-term financing for land purchases and refinancing, and we have the knowledge and expertise to meet your financing needs. We also offer financing and refinancing solutions for many other needs that go along with the ownership of rural properties.

Mississippi Land Bank is a part of the nationwide Farm Credit System, a financial cooperative owned by its member-borrowers since 1916. Unlike commercial banking institutions, because of our unique cooperative structure the member-borrowers of Mississippi Land Bank share in the profits generated from our lending activity in the form of patronage dividends. This can significantly reduce the cost of borrowing for our member-borrowers. From 2004 through 2015, Mississippi Land Bank returned $27,055,995 to our member-borrowers. We also offer other financial services as well.
