"I consider our relationship with Western as a real partnership that adds value to our business."

Jim Szymanski, James Associates

"Our family has been banking at Western for three generations now. I’ve been here over 40 years. During that time, a relationship of mutual trust has been built, and I feel very comfortable here at Western. I like the fact that I personally know most everyone. Western has always worked with us as our farm and family have grown."

Terry (James & Jon) Haman, Crary, ND

"At Western, the personal service is really different. The products are great, but their ultimate personal service really stands out."
