What’s on your mind?
The United States is the world’s largest agricultural producer and processor, yet our agribusinesses operate in a highly competitive global economy. The business of agriculture is like no other. You face a unique blend of marketing, accounting, tax, regulatory, risk, and operational issues.
A unique approach
Most of our agribusiness professionals were raised on or have worked on operating farms, or have worked for businesses that service production agriculture. Not everyone knows what it means to be a farmer, but we do at CLA, and we bring that firsthand knowledge to our clients.
Watch our video below to learn about how one CLA professional has deep roots in agriculture. It’s a story we hear over and over, and it’s a story many of us have lived.
