Our farm managers have strong agricultural backgrounds and they have expertise in cropland, pasture, wildlife/conservation land, and gravel pits/minerals.  Our staff is also experienced with guiding landowners through the complexities of wind, solar, pipeline, utility, and other easements. 

In an everchanging agricultural environment, we stay well informed with the latest in agronomic technology and trends.  Farming has evolved into a digital world with endless amounts of information seemingly at our fingertips.  A few examples of what our managers can analyze for your farm include yield data, soil fertility tests, variable rate seeding plans, and many others.  We have experience in dealing with precision farm data management platforms.

Out team is very experienced in researching, analyzing, and implementing a variety of farm improvement projects.  Many of these projects include tile drainage installation, erosion control structures, grassed waterways, conservation/wildlife plantings, irrigation, and building site removal.

We know firsthand how deeply connected our clients are to their land.  Many of our client’s family farms and properties have been passed on for generations.  We take pride in being the trusted manager to care for these assets and family treasures.
