Our services can be tailored to meet customer needs. Our full service farm management includes tenant selection, lease negotiation, lease preparation, payment of real estate taxes, payment of property & liability insurance premiums, furnish accounting reports, prepare annual farm budget, oversee farm operation, review soil tests, lease & manage rental houses, oversee maintenance and capital improvements approved by clients. Improvements include land clearing, terracing and tiling.


A quarterly transaction journal listing farm income and expenses is provided to our clients. We also provide a year-end income statement and general ledger detail report to assist our clients with year end income tax preparation. A separate real estate trust account is maintained for each farm client. It is an interest bearing money market account, with the interest credited to the client's account each month.


Periodic farm inspections will be completed with reports furnished to our clients after each inspection. These reports may be sent by mail, fax or email. The inspections include meetings with the farm tenants to discuss the farm operation, oversee repairs and capital improvements and crop scouting. Crop plats are also furnished.


An annual farm budget and cash flow projection is furnished to our clients. This report summarizes anticipated income and expenses for the year and the funds available for disbursement to our clients.


We will review the farm lease on an annual basis and make recommendations to our clients on any necessary changes in lease terms. We negotiate the lease terms for our clients. Leases include cash rent, crop share and custom farming. We collect cash rent when due and file Landlord liens with the Secretary of State. We can't guarantee the collection of cash rent for our clients, but we take all precautions to select financially sound tenants, file liens or collect the entire cash rent in full at the beginning of the lease term on March 1st.


Our firm handles all the paperwork required to enroll the farm in the government program and monitor to ensure compliance with all programs.


The fee for our full farm management service will vary depending on the size of the farm, the type of lease selected and the services provided. Our fees are typically a percentage of the owner's gross income. We also offer a flat fee if a client prefers this method. Our fee is paid at the time the farm income is collected and deposited to the client's farm account.
