Overview

Started in 1912, The Farmers Bank has assets totaling $649 million along with $543 million in deposits, ranking it as a medium-size bank. The Farmers Bank, whose headquarters are in Portland, Tennessee, lacks premium access to support representatives, with no live chat or all-day service options available. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. We gave the bank a 4.5 stars out of 5, indicating that The Farmers Bank is among the top banks, and should be given serious consideration. The Farmers Bank provides customers with a selection of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, The Farmers Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Institutions that offer free checking as well as a high savings APY are your best option for accruing the most income from your deposits alongside easy access to your money.
