Farm Management Solutions

Our Approach

Our first step in working with new clients is sitting down to discuss their specific objectives in farmland ownership as well as starting to gather a history of the farmland. Being as every individual or group of individuals has different goals and expectations of farmland ownership; we want to create a customized management plan that is unique to our client.  After a management plan has been established, communication and collaboration are key factors we want between the farm manager, farm owner and tenant/operator to help in achieving maximum farm profitability and proper land stewardship.

Hourly Consulting

Many farmers and farm owners desire at times to secure the ideas of a professional for short-term decision making or special management problems. These might include the feasibility of capital expansion, cropping plans or governmental program analysis, projected costs and return on enterprise expansion, livestock and crop diseases and pest problems. In such cases, a manager is available by appointment on an hourly consulting schedule. A visit to your farm or meeting with you in our office may be arranged.
Another area our farm managers deal regularly in are land rental agreements and are prepared to make appraisals on the current market for land rents.  They are also able to offer professional advice on methods of establishing rents; cash, crop share or innovative arrangements to spread risk between landlord and tenant. 

Land Stewardship

Our farm managers are strong proponents of proper land stewardship practices. By implementing proper conservation and fertility practices, working with governmental agencies, and keeping detailed soil test information we want to put our clients at ease knowing their investment is being taken care of for years to come.  

Farm Record Keeping

Contracting for annual management services includes professional farm record keeping. Our farm managers and investment management team can provide whatever level of farm record keeping services you desire. This may include a variety of ongoing computerized financial reports to assist you in managing your operation.
