Foster-care agency buys former York-area AgChoice office

An organization specializing in foster-care services has bought the former office of farm-lending organization AgChoice Farm Credit in West Manchester Township, York County.

Human-services organization PA Child purchased the 10,000-square-foot site at 3301 W. Market St., just west of downtown York, for $375,000, officials involved in the sale said.

Efforts last week and this week to reach PA Child officials have not been successful.

PA Child was seeking a more visible location and decided to move from its old location several blocks away at 4160 W. Market St., said Kevin Hodge, a brokerage adviser with ROCK Commercial Real Estate. He represented AgChoice in the sale.

AgChoice had moved its York County office to a new, smaller building in North Codorus Township in early January.

AgChoice is one of Pennsylvania’s largest agricultural lenders, and its York branch office provides more than $171.3 million in total loan volume for agricultural, forest products and rural customers in York and Adams counties, its officials said this week.

AgChoice officials have put the cost of the new 4,000-square-foot branch at around $700,000.

AgChoice, which is part of the national farm credit system, lends money to farmers in 57 Pennsylvania counties, mostly west of the Susquehanna River, and in four counties in West Virginia.
