Why I chose agriculture

I went to a community college for a couple of years, then came back to farm with my brothers. We all share the same goals and think alike. There’s no “I’m working harder than him” stuff or anything like that. We work well together.

How we make decisions

There’s a lot of networking involved. We’re always talking to our seed dealers, our fertilizer dealers, people like that on our team. We like to get a second opinion.

The future of our operation

The biggest thing is the transition of the farm. It’s something we’re all going to work through together. We know it can be a challenge to bring new people into the operation successfully, but we’re committed to doing it.

The Right Team to Grow a Farm

Brothers Aaron, John and Matt Anderson rely on a team of stakeholders to help manage and grow their farm. That team includes their FCSAmerica financial officer, who helps them evaluate risk and other key factors when making big decisions.

Aaron, John and Matt Anderson all entered their family operation at different times and under different circumstances. Their FCSAmerica financial officer worked with them to integrate each brother into the operation, and today, the brothers say the chemistry established early on remains critical to their success.

Buying high-priced farmland is a major investment into a growing operation, and Aaron Anderson says the pressure of that process was eased by working with an FCSAmerica financial officer.

The recent boom in ag prices helped position the Anderson brothers to grow their operation. Though the cycle has turned, being on the same page with their FCSAmerica financial officer has helped weather the downturn, Aaron Anderson says.

Technology is important to growing a farm operation, and that doesn’t end with new machinery. Financial technology like FCSAmerica’s digital tools helps position producers like the Anderson brothers to expand their operation when the time is right.
