Farm & Ranch

When You Need Help

Feed. Fences. Tractors. Taxes. One of these things is not like the other. In our world, they’re all very much related when you’re running a farm or a ranch. We can help with the entity structure planning to setting up your cattle feeding operation, assisting you with the business plan for a scientific breeding license or get you through the maze of sales tax issues related to hunting and shooting and, our favorite, cedar eaters. Whatever the situation, ATKG understands farms and ranches, and we partner with you to learn the nuances of your specific operations and offer tailored solutions and approaches to help achieve your goals. Ultimately, working with ATKG will result in the best solutions for your exact needs.
