Important Information Regarding Name Change
Notice to our valued customers and communities: Farmers State Bank will change its name to Nebraska Bank on March 17, 2022!
Since our founding in 1889, Farmers State Bank has taken pride in being a community bank. Our roots in the agricultural community remain strong even as our services have expanded. During the past 10 years we have diversified the industries we serve and have grown into nine unique communities. Transitioning from Farmers State Bank to Nebraska Bank better reflects the customers we serve—all Nebraskans across this fine state.
While you can expect to see a new name and logo, as well as investments in technology that add ease and convenience, many things will not change. There is no ownership change, and you will continue to receive the same personalized banking experience from the employees and leadership you know and trust. We also remain committed to community banking with responsive, local decision-making. This means leveraging our banking expertise in agriculture, as well as commercial, industrial, construction, mortgage, and consumer banking to serve the needs of our loyal customers and the unique Nebraska communities they call home.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why are you changing the bank’s name? The new name reflects the bank’s expansion and the evolution of its strategic philosophy over the last 10 years. In short, it better describes the customers and communities we serve—all Nebraskans and the communities they call home.

How has growth influenced the name change? Farmers State Bank was originally chartered in 1889 with a single branch location in Dodge focused on the ag industry. A group of local investors purchased the bank in 2011, expanding it into Bridgeport, Alliance, and Chadron and later into Spencer, Atkinson, Carroll, Hickman and Hemingford. As our footprint has stretched into more metro areas with diverse industries and banking needs, we have encountered unaffiliated banks with similar names and, over time, have seen a disconnect between our name and the scope of clients we serve. Now—with locations across the state and service offerings that extend far beyond agriculture into areas that include commercial, industrial, construction, mortgage, and consumer banking—we are in need of a name that better reflects our customers and communities.
