Border Bank Purchases Northern Ag.

David L. Felch, Chief Executive Officer of Border Bank, announced Border Bank has purchased Northern Ag, an insurance agency focused on improving the financial security of producers by providing risk management tools, including crop insurance and marketing plans.  

Northern Ag will continue to operate business as usual, keeping the name “Northern Ag” and their offices in Thief River Falls, Roseau and Goodridge.

“Acquiring Northern Ag aligns with Border Bank’s plan to grow Border Bank beyond core banking, by integrating other types of business lines that will fill the needs of our customers. We welcome and look forward to working with the six member team at Northern Ag, which will continue to be led by Jody Miller, former owner, who will be the President of Border Bank’s insurance business,” stated Felch. 

“I would like to thank my customers for their loyal business. I have been so fortunate to never think of my job as “work”, as I am doing what I love. With this teamwork and dedication, I look forward to working for our customers’ farming operations for many more years to come,” stated Miller, President, Market Analyst and Crop Insurance Agent.

Border Bank was established in 1935 and has two branches in Fargo, North Dakota, and nine branches in Minnesota: Coon Rapids, Greenbush, Thief River Falls, Middle River, Badger, Roseau, Baudette, International Falls and Clearbrook.
