Let's Keep Farmers Farming

Let us ensure your operation’s success. Farms and ranches grow and change over time. Our Legacy Consultants work with you, as a facilitator, with no hidden agenda to sell you something. Our goal is to Keep Farmers FarmingSM and to help you define your legacy.

Let First Dakota National Bank help keep you farming. A great plan without action is no different than a poor plan. We can do this at our office, your kitchen table or an offsite facility. Talk with us about the benefits of Keep Farmers Farming.

Legacy Planning

Legacy is more than just transferring assets to the next generation (estate plan) in hopes that things hold together. It is the sharing of experience, work ethic, morals, and history.

Keep Farmers Farming will work with you, and all those involved, in the transition of your farm or ranch. Our only goal is to help you build pride in the legacy of your operation. We recognize that each operation is unique, so each transition plan we help create is tailor made for your situation.

Strategic Planning

The strategic planning process includes completing an analysis to define your operation's Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT). We'll help you and your stakeholders define goals and objectives and assist you to define action plans that will allow you to reach them.

Best Business Practices

Best Business Practices are an essential part of every operation, but also the easiest to put on the back burner. At First Dakota, we help you touch all aspects of the farm and ranch business, from improving financial management to helping resolve labor issues to improving efficiency and increasing our asset utilization.
