  • Cash flow analysis
  • Retirement planning
  • Tax management
  • Start-up and diversification planning
  • Loan procurement
  • Farm Start-up Programs for new farmers wanting to start a¬†farm operation in the region or established farmers who want to diversity operations. Focuses on business planning and regional resources that can help new farmers succeed.

We are ready to help farmers operate successful business endeavors, and also keep abreast of changes in local, State and Federal regulations as they relate to agricultural businesses.
