Chairman's Message

We want to welcome you to Farmers Bank and Trust…a community bank that has given our customers the highest priority for over a century. We believe that success is simply a matter of treating our customers the way we would want to be treated.

Farmers Bank and Trust Company was chartered on September 26, 1906 in Magnolia, Arkansas. The oldest existing general ledgers indicate that the bank began with approximately $75,000 in assets. The primary business of the bank at the time was deposit services. Today, the bank has assets that exceed $699 million and offers a wide variety of products and services to serve the needs of the communities it serves. Farmers Bank and Trust is an independent community bank that operates out of a one bank holding company, Magnolia Banking Corporation.

The bank has built a reputation of conservative soundness that has served it well. Through the years, our bank has enjoyed a character of strong integrity and honesty that has enabled the bank to gain increased market share in the banking market.

Over the years, Farmers Bank & Trust has expanded beyond Columbia County. In addition to Columbia County, the bank has offices in Ouachita, Hot Spring and Saline Counties. Farmers Bank & Trust is headquartered in Magnolia. The bank operates over a dozen branches with locations in Magnolia, Welcome, Camden, East Camden, Malvern, Rockport, Texarkana, and Haskell. 

Please feel free to visit, call, or e-mail us today. We put our customers first and are dedicated to serving the banking needs of our community and beyond.

To us, you're family.
