Halderman Farm Management Service, Inc. was founded in 1930 in Wabash, Ind., by Howard H. and Marie Halderman. They started the business in their home, vowing “To do for your farm what you would do if you had the time and the experience.” Business grew, as did the staff. From two people, one client and a hand-full of farms to manage, the Halderman companies have steadily grown to managing 650+ farms across 19 states and Canada, selling and acquiring over 150 properties and performing over 800 appraisals annually. It is now one of the largest family-owned professional farm management and real estate organizations in the United States, and that is the reason they say, “If it has anything to do with the business of farming, Halderman Can Help!”
