Minster Bank Sows Seeds of Trust With Local Farmer

Dan Vogel’s farm operation in St. Marys, Ohio financed with Minster Bank

Local farmer Dan Vogel has a personal connection to Minster Bank: He began banking with them when his mother started working at the St. Marys office when it opened in 1988.

Read more about Vogel’s experience with Minster Bank and how we’ve helped him find success with his farming operation.

Personal Relationships at Minster Bank

Vogel’s mother joined the Minster Bank team after raising her four sons. He said, “We wanted to support her, so we all started banking there.”

Since then, Dan’s continued to work with Minster Bank, crediting the relationships he’s made and the excellent service he always receives. 

Vogel works with commercial lender Ron Meyer for most of his needs. He estimates that he does about 99% of his banking with Minster Bank, including for equipment, land and operating loans.

“Ron understands what we do at our farm,” he said. “We’ve actually become friends. It’s much more personal than working with a bigger bank.”

Vogel said he’s recommended Minster Bank to others many times and will continue to do so.
