About FamilyFarms Group

Why and how we can preserve your legacy

Family farms have been the foundation of our society for hundreds of years. But over the last 10-20 years, row crop farms are being threatened by a changing ag environment & economics; hitting “glass ceilings” in which their operation now requires skills and management techniques not yet learned; and row crop consolidation factors which previously drove small and medium operations in other sectors (pork, dairy, beef) out of business. FamilyFarms group wants to do our part to keep these family farms alive, growing, and successful into the future.

We do this by respecting your operation’s independence, understanding your unique situation, building trust, helping you establish goals and providing support to attain those goals.

It’s all about continual improvement – helping you and your farm get even better.
