FEBRUARY 2014, FRUITLAND, MD– Ben Alder, Senior Advisor with Sperry Van Ness – Miller Commercial Real Estate in Salisbury, MD recently hosted the 2014 Agricultural Forum at Black Diamond Lodge in Fruitland, MD. The event was focused on providing useful information to over 100 local farmers and agricultural producers regarding economics, land use and the agricultural market.  John Ade, the Senior Vice President of North American Grain for Perdue Agribusiness was on hand to open the event.

Several of the event sponsors hosted breakout sessions during the forum. Nationwide Agribusiness led a session on Estate Planning, Miles & Stockbridge presented information about Land Use Laws and Regulations, Mike Twining of Willard Agri-Service spoke about Farm Profitability, and Paradise Energy and Hoober/Case IH led a session on Farm Technology and the Environment. Dan Manternach, the Director of Operations for Doane Advisory Services gave the keynote speech focusing on a Global Look at Agricultural Markets & Delmarva.

“I truly enjoyed bringing this partnership together for the first Agricultural Forum” said Ben Alder. “Today’s agricultural sector on the Delmarva is influenced by happenings from around the world. Bringing business leaders and agricultural leaders together around agriculture is good for the industry, and I believe the information provided by the presenters will help producers and the business community understand where agricultural markets stand today and what factors are shaping them.”
