Your Montana Bank Since 1907

Montana was just a teenager when Farmers State Bank opened their doors in Victor MT in 1907. We’ve seen a lot of changes, of course, but some things have remained the same over our 114-year history – our commitment to the communities we serve, the customers who have given us their trust, and the employees who deliver our unique brand and services day after day.

Today Farmers State Bank has nine unique full-service branch locations in western Montana: Victor, Darby, Hamilton, Stevensville, Florence, Lolo, Missoula, Helena and Kalispell. That means you can bank where you live, work and play. And for those times when you just can’t get to the bank, we offer secure state of the art mobile and Internet banking services that bring the bank to you.

We’re still Montana owned and locally managed, with the third and fourth generations of the Groff/Clevidence family at the helm and in key positions.

We’re extremely proud of the contributions we make to the communities we serve. One of the most enduring is our scholarship program. Since 2000, Farmers State Bank has awarded a $10,000 scholarship to a qualifying senior from each of the six high schools in the Bitterroot Valley. As our footprint has grown outside the Bitterroot, we’ve added $10,000 scholarships to graduating seniors in Missoula, Helena and Kalispell. Over one million dollars has been awarded to date.

We offer a full range of personal and commercial banking services and a team of dedicated professionals in every Farmers State Bank location. Whether you are buying, building or remodeling, we pride ourselves on a responsive mortgage loan process that is approved and managed in-house whenever possible. Our experienced commercial lenders represent a broad range of business interests and organizations. Local loan approvals mean quicker turnaround time and less red tape. Our lenders ‘bring the bank to you’ anywhere in western Montana. Farmers State Bank is an SBA Preferred Lender, an Equal Housing Lender and Member FDIC.

Whether you’re new to Big Sky Country, or just ready for a new approach to banking, choose Farmers State Bank, your Montana bank since 1907. Visit, or stop by any of our nine locations (lobbies currently open by appointment, call 406.642.3431). We look forward to welcoming you.
