Located in the heart of Central California – the world’s richest agriculture region – we at Frazer LLP, pride ourselves in knowing that our roots run deep in agriculture. So it only makes sense that we have a substantial practice that assists farmers and operators of agricultural businesses. Our clients are located throughout California, from the San Joaquin Valley to the Central Coast and from Coachella Valley to the Yuba-Sutter area.

Frazer’s experienced CPA’s and business consultants are equipped to meet the accounting, tax and consulting needs of all types of farms from small family owned farms to large vertically integrated operations. Our broad agriculture experience expands across the following industry specializations:

  • Veggies and Berries – growing, packing and shipping, cold storage, sales and marketing, co-ops, and IC-DISC’s
  • Tree Fruit, Nuts and Citrus – growing, packing and cold storage facilities, sales and marketing, nut processors, co-ops and IC-DISC
  • Table Grapes and Vineyards – growing, packing and cold storage facilities, sales and marketing, processing, custom farming and IC-DISC

At Frazer we realize agribusiness operations need more than traditional accounting services. Our mission is to provide the highest level of financial services to assist our agriculture clients to achieve their financial goals. We’ve established strong relationships with local bankers who use our financial statements and tax returns to help extend financing to these important businesses.
