Farm & Real Estate Management

Sound farm management is an investment that pays for itself.  Besides eliminating many worries, most owners experience an increase in profits which easily covers the management fee - while also netting larger cash returns.  Above all else, our services are designed to provide the landowners with perhaps the greatest benefit of all:  PEACE OF MIND! 


Cornerstone Bank’s Farm Management Department, a division of the Trust Department, has been actively managing farms owned by individuals, partnerships, LLCs, foundations, public entities and corporations, as well as trusts, since 1938 - helping landowners get more enjoyment and income from their farm assets.

We manage farms by using long-proven management principles, modern computer technologies and sound marketing strategies.  But most importantly, we manage farms by offering a high level of personal attention.  We provide landowners with frequent reports, staying in constant contact with the farm operator and making regular personal visits to the farm.  We react quickly and personally to situations which require immediate attention.

Other services include:

  • Farm Sales
  • Annual Lease Negotiations
  • Complete record-keeping for tax purposes
  • Marketing owner’s share of crops
  • Complete review and payment of production expenses

Good management doesn't cost, IT PAYS!

Put the advantages of sound farm management to work for you.  For more information about our Farm Management services, call Cornerstone Bank at (402) 363-7411 or call (800) 642-6608.
