Management Philosophy

While many asset-management firms hedge their activities through involvement in many sectors, Westchester remains passionately and solely devoted to agriculture. We take a long-term approach, achieving deep and lasting relationships with farmers and tenants. Our hands-on involvement with the agricultural assets we manage includes having representatives on the ground who act as farm managers and valuable resources in each of the regions in which we work.  We are committed agriculturalists who work with and support these local farmers; many Westchester employees grew up on farms and continue to be involved in family farms, as well as work with our assets.

We focus on only high quality, well-managed assets. These are farms with high soil quality and a favorable location, which generate stronger crop yields and better financial returns. Among the crops that Westchester manages are grains, oilseeds, citrus, vegetables, cotton, almonds, pistachios, wine grapes, apples, and more.
