Agland assists families and other closely held agricultural and forest landowners wishing to engage in or improve resource-land based business. Agland helps families become great families, and board governed entities become great organizations with clear direction, endurance and continuity of purpose, and the management directives to achieve these across succession.

We help owners find their future then act to achieve it. This may include strategic focusing, preparing succession, champion development, building leaders and loyalty, or all of it.

Agland is dialed-in to the problems of resource land business succession, regulation, production and human resources. Agland is a company immersed with real life experience, and dedicated to the practical conservation of agronomist husbandry, families and other close ownerships, and land productivity; both economic and ecologic, as they are inexorably tied.

We achieve this by planning, then by assisting in developing repeatable but simple systems that keep people taken care of and pulling together; the essence of business success.
