In the fall of 1945, Carl F. Hertz found himself at a crossroads. “I was traveling way too often and wanted to be home to see my kids grow up.” It was his family-first approach and passion for farmland that led him to open Hertz Farm Management on March 1, 1946. When Carl opened the doors, he insisted on one thing: In everything we do, operate at the highest level of integrity. Decades later, we remain committed to this value. For 70+ years, our Farmland Professionals have been caring for farmland owners and their agricultural investments. With a full range of services including professional farm management, real estate, and appraisal, we help our clients reach their ownership and family goals. We promise to provide the highest level of service, advice, communication, and commitment we can deliver with integrity and care.
