Matthew demonstrates his passion for agriculture as he provides crop insurance, farm-program services, and farm financial management for producers. Fascinated with the impact of commodity markets and government on farming operations, Matthew keeps close watch on how they affect the farmers he serves.

Because unforeseeable forces affect price and yield, Matthew develops risk management plans for ag producers tailored to their risk tolerances. Since 2011, he’s grown the firm’s crop-insurance practice to cover over 42,000 acres.

Along with providing the insurance analysis, he attains results such as:

  • Successfully winning an appeal on his client’s behalf, overturning a decision by the Risk Management Agency—a decision with an historic overturn rate close to 0%.
  • Providing timely, informational seminars to give producers the advantages they need in crop insurance and farm program decisions.

Growing up in Laurel, Mississippi, his first job was shelling peas at a fruit and produce stand. Hands on, his love for the business side of agriculture continues to grow with each passing season. Matthew believes that mutual trust is the foundation for success in business relationships. This means telling producers the information they need to hear—although sometimes it’s not what they want to hear—in an understandable, no-nonsense way so they can make their best business decisions.
