Additional Farm Experience

Besides our professional engineering practice, we manage over 1000 acres of ranch, farm and timberlands in Idaho and Oregon, as well as a hydroelectric facility on the Snake River.  We have operating on these properties the usual pieces on farm equipment: tractors, swathers, balers, rakes, planters, harvesters, tilling equipment, backhoes, skid steers and ATV’s.  These properties are available for various test or demonstration purposes of crops and equipment, and they are available for use by clients. We also use our contacts with our many local farmers to gather data about the equipment they buy and use. We are happy to make this connection to our farms available.
