Big Dollars Big Risk

Farming is big business. Since it’s largely managed by you and your family few people can comprehend the amount of money flowing in and off the farm. Fewer yet understand the nuances associated with that deployment of capital on the farm or the risk involved.

More Than Accounting

MNP helps farmers with Assurance & Accounting services, yes. They’ve been working with agricultural clients in the areas of accounting, bookkeeping and auditing for more than 60 years. When it comes to the unique reporting needs of this industry, MNP has farmers covered.

Tax Expertise at Your Fingertips

Beyond that, MNP can help farmers develop a comprehensive tax strategy that considers all incentives and opportunities to minimize their tax exposure and help put additional capital back into the farm business.

Agriculture Risk Management Resources (ARMR)

When it comes to Risk Management in farming, MNP knows that continued growth and ongoing success hinge on the decisions a farmer makes today. MNP’s specialists work with farmers to deliver an integrated and full-service approach that will address all risk management needs. Their Agriculture Risk Management Resources (ARMR) program is designed to help farmers navigate these challenging times and come out ahead.

Farm Management Consultants

Farm Management is yet another area where MNP can help. MNP’s Farm Management Consultants (FMC) are an incredible team of professional agrologists and agronomic consultants with extensive experience in this sector. Whether you are looking for advice on day-to-day challenges or require specific advice on areas such as crop selection, cost of production or financial structuring, they can help.

TransitionSMART Succession Planning

Planning for the next generation of farmers is essential. With MNP’s TransitionSMART Succession Planning program, farmers across Canada can rest easy knowing they’ve made the right succession decisions for their farm. This program is comprehensive, accounting for every aspect of the succession process, designed for each farm operation to meet its own goals.

Corporate Finance

Having the right strategy can make a big difference. Whether a farmer is considering merging their operation with another, acquiring another business, raising capital, or divesting, MNP’s Corporate Finance team is here to help every step of the way.


In need of Forensics services? This combines accounting, due diligence, and expertise in the area of financial investigation. If a farmer is looking to protect their agriculture assets from fraud and mismanagement, or if they need help resolving sensitive emergency matters, they can lean on the forensic expertise available through MNP.

Valuations & Litigation

Valuations and Litigation support is another area where MNP excels. If a farmer is planning on buying or selling, thinking about succession, or dealing with litigious matters, shareholder disputes, or any other financial-based decisions, they can rely on MNP’s specialized knowledge to make the most informed decision.


Though no farmer wants to think about insolvency matters, in these challenging times, the topic does come up. It’s really important to have relationships with trusted advisors when such difficult subjects are at hand. MNP’s Corporate Recovery and Personal Insolvency professionals are ready to help any farmer develop a holistic solution that prioritizes their immediate and long-term financial well-being.
