FAIRFIELD – Texas Farm Credit Services celebrated the grand opening of its new Fairfield office on March 23 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house for customers, city officials and members of the business community.

The 3,000-square-foot building at 435 W. Interstate 45 was designed with a welcoming farmhouse style. Beneath the homey exterior are many energy-efficient and high-tech features, including high-speed fiber optic cable that will help the lender provide fast and efficient loan transactions for customers.

The lending cooperative made it a priority to use an East Texas architect and local building contractors for the project.

“Going local fits in with our philosophy as a small-town co-op,” said Danny Wren, branch manager and a Fairfield native and cattle producer. “We feel we can serve our customers well because we are from the local community and understand local agriculture, and when it came time to build our new office, we traded in town, too.”

The office is located on the service road on the west side of Interstate 45, just north of U.S. 84 West. Ample parking, high visibility and easy access from the interstate make the new office convenient for customers across the branch’s territory. The Fairfield office serves Freestone, Houston, Leon and Limestone counties, and its satellite office in The Woodlands serves Montgomery, Polk, San Jacinto, Trinity and Walker counties.

Customers and guests gathered at the new office for building tours and a lunch from Hyden Family Barbeque served by local FFA students. Dessert from MommaCakes and Fairfield Shaved Ice rounded out the meal.
