About Us


Foresight Bank is a unique community bank because we listen to our customers and we focus on environmental sustainability.

We recognize every customer is different and we need to listen so we can understand how we can help. We don’t have a cookie-cutter approach that we apply to all of our customers, and we don’t thoughtlessly apply the same approaches to financial services other banks and credit unions use. We like challenges and we aren’t afraid to think outside the box.

This independent thinking has led us to conclude renewable energy and conservation projects make economic sense and they are responsible courses of action for current and future generations. Therefore, we are committed to championing their development. In fact, we are one of the few banks in the United States to be operating on our own solar power.

Friendly Service-Forward Thinking is not just a tagline. As our name implies, we look to understand your needs and then use that knowledge to assist you in making the best decisions now and for the future, with honesty and transparency. You will see it in our products and services, and you will see it in our staff and optimistic attitude. Foresight Bank does banking differently by MAKING a difference.


Foresight Bank was originally chartered in 1902 as The First National Bank of Plainview and for generations has remained a locally owned and managed independent community bank.  In 2013, we converted from a national to a Minnesota bank charter and changed our name to Foresight Bank.

Foresight Bank employs 45 people at our Plainview, Rochester, and Eyota Minnesota locations. Our assets of over $300 million have grown steadily due to our commitment to our customers and communities.
