Land Management

  • What can I expect if Edgewater takes over our land management?
    The land managers with Edgewater handle all of the day-to-day operations of your farm. We provide regular 'boots on the ground' inspections of your property throughout the year. After each farm inspection we provide a written farm report to keep our clients up to date of any changes. We create specific farm reports for each landowner based on the needs for each individual client. We take care of the grain inventory and marketing throughout the growing season. The land manager will make recommendations for any property improvements to help increase the value and profit for each farm. Most importantly, we manage the farm as if it was our own.
