A Financial Plan to Grow With You and Your Family 

Life never stands still and none of us can predict the future, but we can plan for it. Each one of us has a different vision of what it means to be financially secure, and your vision is likely to change throughout your lifetime – when you begin your career, start a family, educate your children and enter retirement. With that, your path to financial security starts with a comprehensive plan that outlines a clear path to achieving success. We can help you create a personalized financial plan that has a firm foundation in your beliefs and addresses your hopes for the future.

Achieving financial security takes more than creating a comprehensive plan; you also have to take action on your plan, and evaluate and adjust it over time.  Together, we’ll create a timeline to help protect you and your family now, and execute the steps necessary to respond to whatever life brings.

Financial Planning for Your Agri-Business and Family

Operating and owning a successful farm takes patience, planning, hard work and oftentimes a little luck. Planting crops when the soil and weather are just right or buying, selling, or contracting when the price is right are just a couple of examples where planning and luck go together. While most owners put time and planning into the day to day facets of the farm, very little actually plan for the future of their operation.

For most, farming is not just a business; it is a way of life. It is a lifestyle that most farm families want to be able to pass down to the next generation and generations to come. As the owner of a successful farm, you will need a strategy to protect the legacy that you have successfully built, unless you do not plan to die or retire. We like to believe that our family will be able to get along at our death, but the reality is that without a succession plan in place, farms and families can be torn apart at any moment. For those family members that are involved in the farm and for those that are not, fair is not always equal. By having a succession plan in place, you are likely to avoid many conflicts and the legacy of your farm is likely to continue.

With careful, thought out, and detailed planning, you can control the future of your farm. With the help of my team, we can help you develop a succession plan that is personally fit for the success of you and your farm for this generation and future generations.
