“70% of family farms will change hands over the next 15 years.” - USDA

Many of these will transition to a generation that did not grow up on the farm or operate it themselves. We connect Landowners to Producers who will operate the land as if it were their own.

Preserving the family farm – 1 Landowner, 1 Producer and 1 Farm at a time

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to be the strongest possible advocate for you and your family farm.

WHAT WE DO

Combining 80 years of experience in the Agriculture industry to offer you these services.

Century Match™

A program unique to Next Gen Ag where we match the next generation of landowners to the next generation of producers.

We maintain a database of prospective producers and match them to landowners with similar goals and criteria of their family’s farm.

Leasing Program

We act as an unbiased 3rd party to help facilitate fair and long term lease arrangements for the benefit of your farm and your landowner-producer relationship.

We offer a flexible flat fee structure that can be paid by the landowner, the producer, or both can share in the cost.

Consulting Services

We offer our expertise in other areas such as our young farmer mentoring program, real estate consultation, and facilitating transition of farm operations between non-related parties.
