"Marian and I discussed your recent management report, and we are both in agreement that we are more than satisfied with your managing of both farms. You are on top of the planting season, the condition of our crops as the season goes forward, communicate easily with our tenants, and keep us well informed. You have always been easy to contact, and you quickly get back to us with answers to any of our questions. We both are very confident with your handling of our affairs...keep up the good work." -- Marie

Helpful and genuine are just a couple of the traits that Adam Kestner has shown me as my farm manager. I, truly, have had the great pleasure of working with him for several years, and it has always been seamless. This isn't always easy when living several states apart. That made me realize there is nothing better than a farm manager who lives and farms in the community that he represents. Adam manages my family's farm with kindness, respect, and fiscal responsibility....just as though it were his own. I'm so thankful for his knowledge.---Amy

Adam Kestner of Farmers National Company has done an excellent job managing our farm in Gladstone, IL. He is very knowledgeable and responsive, and does a great job communicating with me and our tenants. When problems arise, he acts quickly with solutions. I highly recommend Adam as a farm manager.---Alan

Adam has been our family farm manager for several years. He is extremely knowledgeable, gracious, and kind. His reports are well-timed and easy to understand. He responds to random inquiries and requests the same day, sometimes within minutes. He is willing to investigate options on our behalf. He knows us; he knows our farm; he knows our farmers. Across generations and across the country, our family involvement in the farm has increased, along with our income from the farm. Who could ask for more?---Emily

I have been exceptionally pleased with Adam Kestner's management of our family farm. Since he took over management in the last couple of years, he has been very receptive to our desire to become a NON-GMO, no till farm. He is working with us to see if strip-till farming is workable for us. Both he and our farmers have to gone to workshop and conventions to build their knowledge on this. Adam is very responsive and easy to work with. His communication skills are excellent.--Louisa

Success Story:
"I would like to provide some feedback on Adam Kestner, who served as the farm manager for the past few years for the Surry farm in Illinois, and as the real estate agent when the family sold the farm in 2015. Adam was outstanding. My mother described Adam as the best farm manager she has ever worked with since she took over the farm in the late 80s.When I took over as Trustee in 2014, Adam’s exceptional service made the Trustee transition seamless. Adam is dependable, pro-active, dedicated, experienced, prompt, courteous, and organized. As the farm manager and eventually the real estate agent, Adam always demonstrated a passion for his role and in providing the best customer service possible. Adam was adaptable, handling a wide variety of duties with ease. He also networked in a way that utilized the expertise among the people at Farmers National Company to achieve the best service possible. He was quick to respond to customer inquiries, ensuring the needs were addressed and the information provided was clear, detailed, and highly organized. He always stepped up to the plate during more demanding or high-pressure situations, taking the actions necessary to address the matter, demonstrating excellent people and communication skills to work with the farm tenant and owner and achieve the best outcome. I always felt confident the farm was under exceptional management working with Adam. The farm maximized its income potential and eventual sale price due to Adam’s dedication, knowledge, and expertise. In the end, Adam was an example of a person truly dedicated to delivering a service that was nothing short of top quality.--J Surry
