Ben Price

This defiant trade name expresses poise as a professional farm manager and real estate broker associate at Farmers National Company.


A 25-year farm management client of your company, who is a coffee group friend of mine, referred me to sign-up my farms with you, Ben, to experience pro-active farm management. We have owned the farms for 16 years now, but we never really realized their potential until you made a complete review of our operation. Now, I am seeing my farms for the first time through your trained eyes.

Jim E. from Denver, Colorado

We want to thank you for your tireless dedication to the sale of our Iowa land parcels. You were so gracious and helpful with all of our questions. The closing went successfully today for the Replacement Property. We are very grateful to you and wanted you to hear it from us.

Susan O. from Dallas, Texas

I just wanted to take a moment out of everyone’s busy day to share how much we have enjoyed Ben. He has been very organized, knowledgeable, and pleasant to be with. Our farmers and other operators have also enjoyed Ben.  All changes have been excellent.  

Mark C. from Orlando, Florida

We finally set up our farm with Farmers National last year. Ben Price is our farm manager. We are very pleased with the results! We have been able to get our farm back in the condition we can be proud of.  My sister and I will be able to hold onto the land and pass it on to the kids. This is largely due to the support of Farmers National.

In short, he does what he says he will do and I can count on him. Ben has handled the unexpected with his usual poise and professionalism.

I am writing to support the superb care of our farm manager Ben Price has given our farm. Ben has worked each year to assess what he feels is a fair and equitable rent for our land. He has in-turn presented this information to our farm family in a way that they could accept and understand. He has been great at also sending along how the crop on the farm is progressing each year. When I call Ben with a request he responds promptly. He has been a joy to work with all these years.

John E. from Tucson, Arizona

In addition to being highly knowledgeable on agriculture issues, Ben is a combination of extreme competence and hard work.  He has always promptly responded to any questions, requests or concerns that we might have had concerning our farm.  Since we live over 1,000 miles from the farm, we have been very fortunate to have him.

Ben Price has been our farm manager for several years now. He saw us through the derecho in August 2020.  His insurance planning covered us for much of the loss we experienced and softened the blow of that situation for us. Ben also researched and started us on a cover crop program for carbon sequestration, which qualifies for offset payments.  This is another source of farm income too.
