Farm & Ranch, Land & Industrial
Jay Hill, born with a unique love for agriculture and raised on a small farm in southern New Mexico, has diversified into many facets of the industry over the last few decades. Jay has managed, owned, sold, and leased more than 120,000 +/- acres in the agricultural space. These operations have or still include forage crops, vineyards, international and domestic marketing of forage products, seed production, pecan orchards, farm to market produce, restaurant distribution, commercial produce, trucking companies, feed yards, cattle production, and both organic and conventional growing processes. Jay has not only worked in production agriculture, but has also assisted in ground water remediation, Brownfield properties, and restoration of properties that have laid idle for decades.
From irrigation outlays, crop and grazing rotations, investments in water rights, investment farms, input plans, capital outlays, to working with local, state, and national agencies, Jay has helped turn multiple properties into profitable and sustainable operations.
