"Professional farm management provides an excellent opportunity to use my agronomic skills to help clients maximize their farm profits."


Adam joined Hertz Farm Management in February 1999. His strong farming background, agronomy skills, and relationships with many farmers have given him the knowledge and experience to be a successful farm manager.

Adam’s experience with farming goes back to childhood where he grew up and helped operate his family farm in southeast Iowa. This allowed Adam to gain experience with daily chore activities and recommendations on fertilizer, seed, and chemicals. While working at Cenex Land O’ Lakes, he was a seed team leader and an Eagle Squadron Member.

Adam is an active member of the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers and an Iowa licensed real estate salesperson. He and his wife live in rural Cedar County and have one daughter and two sons.
