Life for an Albertan farmer is one of love for the land and livestock. It is not easy, but it is rewarding. Each season brings new experiences and sometimes anxieties as you face inclement weather or natural disasters. Too much or too little rain can kill your crops. Mechanical failures can leave you in a lurch during harvest. However, you keep plugging along because you know it is worth it in the end. You are leaving a legacy for your children and grandchildren.
When Mother Nature is at her worst, who can you turn to for help? How can you keep the farm in the family? You need help and Thomson, Schindle, Green Insurance and Financial Services, Ltd. (TSG) is here to help. Our multi-disciplined agricultural consulting team will work with you to navigate the tenuous world of growing food and livestock with financial planning tailored to your unique needs.
Financial Services that Keep an Eye on the Horizon
Everyone can use some help in running their businesses. Farmers are no different. While your farm may be the backbone of the food supply chain, it is also a heritage that should be passed down through the generations. Talking to an agricultural team member at TSG can help you plan for future difficulties that could potentially damage your business and family. We will sit with you and discuss:
- Crop Inputs: Maybe you have been planting the same crop for decades as the market continues to decline. We can discuss the merits of switching or rotating crops for a better per acre yield and bottom line.
- Machinery Purchases: Efficiency is a critical factor in running a profitable business. Maybe it is time to purchase new, better equipment to make your job easier.
- Shifting Ownership and Managment: As you head toward retirement, do you know who will take over the reins of the family business? This can be an unnerving affair for all parties involved, or it can be seamless. We can help you master the move.
- Keeping It Fair for Off-Farm Kids: What do you do with those children who left the farm? How do you keep them involved in this family affair? It may seem like a balancing act, but we understand the difficulties that can arise when the ‘non-farm’ kids feel left out.
