The Producing Excellence Program (PEP) was launched in 2011 to share positive stories about Farm Credit customers’ success and our support for their efforts. PEP includes stories from every Farm Credit institution, more than 180 articles representing all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Most of the stories highlight a cross-section of the industries we serve, from livestock and row crops to rural infrastructure and produce. Several feature Farm Credit employees.
