“We strive to achieve Farm Credit’s mission to give back to our community and serve military veterans as often as we can. We are thankful for the opportunity to partner with three of the most well-known and delicious barbecue restaurants and their pitmasters in North Carolina for this upcoming Veterans Day lunch,” said Vance Dalton, Evan Kleinhans, and Dave Corum, CEOs of Carolina Farm Credit, Cape Fear Farm Credit, and AgCarolina Farm Credit. “We are honored to give back to the veterans who have done so much for us.”
Last year, Cape Fear Farm Credit and AgCarolina collaborated with Prime Barbecue for a similar appreciation lunch, and after much success, the two Associations are excited to continue the partnership with Carolina Farm Credit to broaden their reach across the state.
Farm Credit is committed to serving rural communities and agriculture with reliable, consistent credit and financial services, today and tomorrow. This commitment includes serving and supporting military veterans who make a difference in both our local communities and our country.
