Farmland Management

Our approach to asset stewardship and risk management begins with a thorough inspection, where we become familiar with your property and its potential.  Then we will sit down with you to discuss your goals and expectations for your property.  Brown Land and Farm Management will then prepare an initial report for your property with long and short term plans.   This plan is based upon your goals and investment objectives for your property and our inspection of the property and its potential.

When you hire Brown Land & Farm Management to manage your property you can expect us to do the following:

  • Keep you informed through written reports, telephone calls, and property tours.
