BIO

Peter Isaacson joined the Peoples Company team in 2018 and focuses on Land and Asset Management for the Clive, Iowa based company. His passion for both production agriculture and conservation make him a great addition to the land management team at Peoples Company.

After growing up on his family’s row crop and beef operation along the banks of Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay, Peter’s passion for agriculture led him to Ames, Iowa where he continued his education at Iowa State University obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Studies and a minor in Agronomy. Growing up on Maryland’s eastern shore gives Peter a strong conservation background with extensive knowledge regarding cover crops, no-till, nutrient management, water quality, and total soil stewardship. Previous work experiences have provided Peter with a wealth of knowledge regarding Ag retail, agronomy, biotechnology, custom operations, conservation, and Midwestern crop production methods, all which are utilized in his current role as a land manager. 

Peter understands that appreciation and sustainability go hand-in-hand, and manages farms with a goaloriented, performance-driven approach. Peter has experience managing farms in Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska, Minnesota, and other properties throughout the Midwest. These farms feature diverse cropping plans, organics, complex leases, conservation practices, and capital improvement projects, leaving no stone unturned when it comes to increasing revenue and sustainability.
