Our Story


Next Gen Ag Advocates was founded in 2018 by two Iowa farmers who shared a concern over what the future of the family farm will look like as more farms transition.  

One of the founders is part of the 68% of farmers estimated to not have children who actively farm. After 40 years of farming, he did not have a successor but used a process to find a young farm couple from his community to transition his operation to and work with his children in the next generation who will inherit his farmland. 

Hence, our Century Match ™ matching and mentoring program was born which helps connect young and aspiring farmers to retiring farmers who don’t have a successor. Next Gen Ag is unique in that it assists with transitions to non-family successors.
