A unique approach
CliftonLarsonAllen (CLA) remains true to its origins — we are a small CPA firm at heart. We serve clients in more than 90 locations, the vast majority located in rural America. Our 5,000 agribusiness clients produce a wide variety of products, including grain, swine, cattle, dairy, citrus, fruits, vegetables, and nuts.
Most of our team members were raised on, or have worked on, farms and ranches, so you’ll work with people who bring extensive firsthand knowledge to your business. Our professionals are nationally known for their insight and analysis of agricultural issues, and frequently provide training to other agricultural professionals and CPAs. With more than 100 dedicated professionals serving the agribusiness industry, we have the resources of a large firm, but still treat you like a neighbor.
