HomeSo Why the Bean?
So, Why the Bean?To celebrate our 50th year we’re recommitting to our bean farming roots!
River Valley Bank has deep roots in bean farming. The Nicklaus family ran one of the country’s largest snap bean operations before they got into banking. So, you might say today’s River Valley Bank was built from beans. And our humble roots are the foundation of the deep commitment to incredible customer service that we practice every day.
Now, River Valley Bank has grown into a thriving community bank with locations across Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. We’re proud to have helped build so many amazing things from our bean farming beginnings.
You’ll see this bean graphic and 50th anniversary logo popping up all over this year. It’s a symbol of where we’ve come from … and a reminder to stay committed to our roots. Join us as we celebrate 50 years of making a difference in the communities we serve and continuing to make magic out of those beans!
