For Thomas, farming is not only a way of life, it’s a business—a business that deserves progressive thoughts, thorough analytics, sound record keeping, and a second set of financial eyes to diminish errors and maximize results. Interacting with producers daily, Thomas employs deep financial analytics to help farmers gain insights that lead to well-informed business decisions.

A lifelong resident of the Mississippi Delta, Thomas grew up on a family farm where he learned about farming mechanics and production. He provides the numbers so farmers can make sound unemotional judgments, no matter the geographic region or crop type, including:

  • Conducting a seed chemical analysis and uncovering reconciliation errors while reviewing budget-to-actual financials. This resulted in recouping a $20,000 error from the co-op.
  • Planning with farmers for the upcoming crop so their fields yield profits in the short- and long-term.
  • Putting plans in place to protect the family legacy

The market’s unpredictable and chaotic nature has little effect on Thomas’ laid-back personality. Because farmers are busy, multi-taskers, he is always ready with laptop and work boots to hop in the combine or walk the fields with them. Day or night, Thomas answers questions and brings new ideas to remove doubt and risk from a farmer’s plate.
