One aspect of our business that we believe sets us apart from our competition is our focus on agribusiness. Our company president, Dave Shealy, grew up on a modest farm in Northeast Crawford County, Ohio, helping his father raise cattle and hogs in addition to farming approximately 400 acres. In the last 30+ years Dave has enjoyed working with many successful farmers and agriculture professionals in the expansion of their businesses, as well as succession planning for the future.

With our personal experience supporting our initiative, we work closely with farm owners to ensure that their interests are being protected and their assets utilized. Our clients in the agriculture industry have entrusted us with their businesses, and in return we offer traditional accounting and tax services, along with the following specialized services:

  • Financial planning with a special concentration on increasing land prices
  • Improving cash flow and cash flow projections
  • Refinancing debt
  • Preparing financial information to apply for a loan
  • Estate planning and/or succession planning
  • Ensuring proper entity structure to protect assets and segregate holdings
