Farmers and Ranchers

Farm accounting prepares you to meet the challenges of tomorrow


Farmers and ranchers are as diverse as agriculture itself. From supply chain to grower, processor, and retailer, our experience as farm CPAs allows us to identify increased efficiency and deliver farm accounting solutions to help you achieve your goals.

Agriculture and farm accounting requires specific insight of tax methods which are unique. Navigating through operations and cash flow, farm accounting, real estate financing, depreciation calculations for equipment, land, crops and ranching, mergers and acquisitions, strategic tax planning, opportunities for estates, trust and individual wealth are things our farm CPAs do every day.

We go beyond financial statements and tax returns.

We work closely with our clients and with those in the industry, bringing ideas and evaluating opportunities. When appropriate, we share best practices that stem from our agribusiness involvement including accounting procedures, tax strategies, investment opportunities, staffing needs or bringing people and companies together.

Preparing more accurate financial reporting by analyzing accounts receivable and accounts payable information provides useful guidance for your business. We design our farm accounting, audit, tax, and consulting services to provide your business standardized information that is easy to review and available electronically.

Bench marking your business strength with your competitors in the global economy is a valuable resource. We perform analysis of variations and help you evaluate key financial ratios so you can seek ways to improve the way your business runs. Our mission is to develop best practices so that you can spend more time doing what you love – growing your orchards, farm your land, and nurture your livestock.

We stay up to date with the most recent proclamations from the Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to watch over concerns and challenges that your business may have. Each year our farm accounting professionals attend local and national seminars or conferences sponsored by the various agribusiness organizations and associations listed below. This commitment to be leaders within the agribusiness industry sets us apart from other firms that may offer similar services.

We are members and attend conferences with the following associations:

  • Agricultural Cooperative Council of Oregon
  • National Society of Accountants for Cooperatives
  • Oregon Association of Nurseries
  • Oregon Farm Bureau
  • Agribusiness Council of Oregon
