What Makes Our Consulting Service Different
We have had so many people calling and emailing us that are either looking for land to buy for sustainable production or people that already own land that are looking for advice on where and how to manage the land that they have. We determined there was a need for some sort of consulting service to meet these frequent calls. We have worked closely with people who want to begin farming, diversify their current operation, and small & large acreage farmers looking for ways to increase profitability on their farm.
We have the expertise to help others and want to do whatever we can to support future and existing small acreage farmers.
At Cinagro Inc., we are committed to encouraging safer, healthier, and more ecological farming and gardening methods by providing technical assistance. Our efforts include projects aimed at working with landowners on ways to retain their land resource base; adoption of farm record system, improved marketing skills, and exploring alternative income enterprises.
