Welcome, Guest to Farmers State Bank

Our History

Who We Are

As Linn County’s largest family-owned community bank, we’re not only your bankers … we’re your neighbors … your friends … and your financial partner.

From the beginning in 1927, FSB was founded by local families to serve local families … and while a lot has changed in the past 90 years, our unwavering commitment to that mission has not. We like to say we’re in the business of creating relationships that last a lifetime.

In 1968, our parents – Morris & Betty Neighbor -- purchased FSB and began a new chapter in our history which continues today as we proudly celebrate 50 years of Neighbor family ownership this year! We’re a bank with strong family values and a sincere commitment to provide financial solutions to families, farmers, businesses and non-profit organizations throughout Eastern Iowa.

As a family-owned community bank, we take pride in giving back to the communities in which we live and work by financially supporting a variety of local community enrichment programs, donor-dependent charitable organizations, and numerous educational programs.

In addition to our financial commitment, FSB employees volunteer an average of 4,500 hours each year in numerous ways for many different organizations … all with the sole purpose of improving the quality of life in our communities.

If you are already an FSB customer … thank you! If you’re looking for a financial partnership with people you can trust … you’ve come to the right place!


Faster Stronger Better

Faster. Stronger. Better.®

Those are strong words – and very bold promises – and we work hard every day to live up to them. So how do we deliver on our branding promise?

We ARE faster.
We all wish we could pack 30 hours into a 24-hour day. While we can’t offer that solution to our customers just yet, we do offer a seamless way to open an account online, get pre-approved for a mortgage loan online in under 20 minutes, use our mobile app to access your accounts, and utilize our Live Chat feature with a Customer Service Specialist any weekday.

We ARE stronger.
Throughout our 90-year history, FSB has been recognized as a catalyst for change in the communities we serve. In 2017, FSB helped strengthen and stimulate local economic growth and development by making over $200 million dollars in consumer and commercial loans. Many of our employees … and everyone on our management team … lend our skills and expertise to provide leadership to a wide range of non-profit, educational and social services boards and committees. Strong leaders help build stronger organizations which result in stronger and more vibrant communities.

We ARE better.
We are committed to creating engaging customer experiences whether those are in person, online or mobile. We understand that being Faster. Stronger. Better. will only resonate with our customers when our behavior consistently delivers on that promise.

Why Choose Us?

With assets approaching the $1 billion mark, we’re large enough to offer the sophisticated financial solutions you need, but small enough to provide the exceptional personal service we’ve always been known for … and you deserve. If you have already chosen FSB as your financial partner, we offer our sincere thanks. If you are looking for a bank to call “home” … we invite you to stop into any FSB office and see firsthand why we truly are Faster. Stronger. Better. ®
