Our Experience. Your Vision. Here We Grow.

Running an agricultural business is different than running other businesses. We understand that.

Our dedicated ag team has over 200 years of combined experience in community banking and small business lending with a deep focus on the Central Coast’s most fruitful industries. Our colleagues and clients have included viticulturalists, cattle ranchers, dairy farmers, nut growers, vegetable brokers, and virtually every other variety of agri-entrepreneur across our region and beyond. And for many of us, local agriculture isn’t just an area of specialization – it’s the way of life we were born into and are raising our families in.
