Professional Staff

The depth of the Agrivest team can be enumerated in the 151 cumulative years of company experience. Our team consists of six Accredited Farm Managers who all grew up on farms, have at least a Bachelors degree in agriculture, and have spent their entire career in an agricultural field. Our diverse backgrounds in areas such as education, extension, credit, seed production and others gives us a lot of experience to draw from.
