Corporate Farm

Risk Management doesn’t just provide commodity risk management advice without understanding what it means. We are responsible for the Commodity Risk Management for the 1500 +/- acre Farms.com corporate-owned farm that grows corn, soybeans, and wheat, as well as some experimental crops and wind and solar energy. It’s a working farm requiring the same marketing decisions as your farm. Port Dover Farms enables the Risk Management team to get a first hand look at farm production issues, as well as the costs associated with the issues. Our Port Dover Farms Cost of Production allows the Risk Management team to accurately track the input trends that consistently change the bottom line. Also, operating our own farm means the Farms.com Risk Management team is aware of limiting other risk variables associated with cash cropping, which gives us insights most of our competitors do not understand.
