Caring for your farmland investment

Farm Management | Farmland Brokerage | Farm Owner Consultation | Appraisal Services

Owners Kent Kraft and Rob Woodrow started Farmland Solutions LLC in February of 2009, in Sherman, Illinois. Anyone who owns farmland could benefit from their expertise in farm management, brokerage, or consultation services. Kent and Rob have grown their business and now look after tens of thousands of farmland acres across the U.S. Midwest.

Using their "muddy boots" philosophy, they obtain deep knowledge of each farm they manage, purchase, or sell for their customers. Their extensive property inspections reduce surprises from situations that require owner or land buyer expense or action. They always act as agents for their owner-clients but consider the farm operator as a business partner, not an adversary.
