Farming and Agriculture Accounting Services

When your office is measured in acres, you have a different view of the world.

When your workspace rolls across fields and pastures, you tend to approach life differently.

When your means of providing for your family is based on getting the most out of every harvest or herd, you don’t have time to mess with a lot of financial paperwork.

But if you don’t stay on top of your numbers, your operation can easily suffer. With margins as slim as they already are, you can’t afford to have a bad year because you failed to budget well, manage your cash flow, or take care of your taxes.

CRS CPA knows how vital farming and agriculture businesses are to our communities. We are based in West Tennessee where farming rules the roost. According to the USDA, Tennessee is blessed with over 77,000 farms covering 10.8 million acres (41% of our state). Thanks to farming businesses like yours, we rank 8th in the nation in number of farms.
