Member Spotlight: Farmers State Bank

Farmers State Bank is one of Montana’s oldest independently owned and operated banks, opening in Victor in 1907. The bank has grown and expanded over the years to meet the needs of customers all over western Montana. Today there are full-service branches serving the communities of Darby, Hamilton, Victor, Stevensville, Florence, Lolo, Missoula, Helena and Kalispell.

Missoula customers also enjoy the convenience of having a dedicated Lending Office in the midtown area located at 1750 Brooks, #B. Sandy Bollom, VP/Commercial Lender; Jared Darnell, Commercial Lender and Nicole Dix, Mortgage Lender are available at this location by appointment to discuss customers’ banking/lending needs. Both Sandy Bollom and Jared Darnell are active members of the Missoula Midtown Association and Farmers State Bank will co-sponsor the Midtown Mixer in October.

One of Farmers State Bank’s most enduring commitments to the communities they serve is through scholarships. Since 2001, Farmers State Bank has awarded over one million dollars in scholarships benefitting 142 students all over western Montana.

While the Bank continues to grow and expand, Farmers State Bank is firmly committed to keeping the community bank feel and atmosphere across all locations. They continue to invest in technology that allows Bank employees to free up time in order to work directly with customers.
