Agriculture Financial Services

Most farming families do not realise that there is an alternative to selling your farm, outside of the traditional auction process. MNP’s corporate finance team specializes in selling farming corporations, which in most cases produces a significantly better after-tax result, while selling all aspects of the farming operation in one transaction.

The corporate finance team is here to help drive the greatest value for you and your family and will support you throughout the entire deal and beyond.

There are a number of factors that set us apart from other as finance advisors to the farming sector:
