Farm Credit of the Virginias, a financial cooperative serving farmers, ranchers and rural homeowners in Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland recently announced that Robin Gilbert will be retiring after 34 years of service.
Robin has been a valuable asset to the Farm Credit of the Virginias’ team since coming on board in our Halifax office, where she spent 16 years working as a Loan Processor. In 1999, Gilbert transferred to our Staunton office for an accounting position and has since become a Senior Associate Accountant.
When asked about her experience at Farm Credit over the years, Robin replied, “Farm Credit of the Virginias is a family that supports each other in both the good times and the bad times. I have always enjoyed my work and I could not imagine working anywhere else.”
Farm Credit of the Virginias provides over $1.8 billion dollars in financing to more than 11,000 farmers, agribusinesses and rural homeowners throughout Virginia, West Virginia and western Maryland. Farm Credit is a cooperative capitalized largely through investments made by farmers, ranchers and the rural homeowners and businesses that borrow from them. In fact, as part of a nationwide network they are the largest single provider of agricultural credit in the United States and have been for 100 years. Farm Credit helps maintain and improve the quality of life in rural America and on the farm through its constant commitment to competitive lending, expert financial services and for facilitating and sharing knowledge and resources through the Farm Credit Knowledge Center.
