About Farm Compliance Services (FCS)
In 2008, FCS hired David Weber, previously a CAFO farm regulator in Vermont, to manage and direct FCS. David set up shop in Grand Rapids and continues to provide services to a variety of farm clients throughout Michigan. At the end of 2014, David purchased FCS from Jacques & Charles Nault. Jacques and his brother Charles are the owners of Logiag, a Quebec agronomic consulting company serving farmers throughout Canada. FCS was originally founded in 1999 by CCA Jacques Nault, who at the time had over 20 years of experience as an agronomist in Quebec, CA. He began FCS to service clients in northern New York state and Vermont, where farmers had heard of his expertise as a crop consultant.
With the 2014-2015 transition in ownership, FCS began a new chapter in our drive to provide improved Nutrient Management and farm analytical services. Our relationship with the Nault's continues as we believe FCS can only be stronger with relationships with planners and farmers throughout the US and Canada.
Our focus at FCS is to offer personalized farm consulting services. All of FCS customers receive our attention and dedication in helping to reach long-term farm goals. Our priority is your farms long-term economic vitality, the long-term environmental health of your farm land, and the efficiencies that must be achieved to continue farming long into the future.
At FCS we do not sell or advertise particular fertilizer, seeds, equipment or chemicals brands/products. We provide data based agronomic and manure management advice. If you don't need it, we don't recommend it, because we have no interest in recommending inputs the farms simply does not need.
Our firm is committed to offering efficient, high-quality compliance services that are customized to your farm requirements, and we do so at a competitive price.
To help our clients keep up with all the various programs and permit record keeping annual requirements, we continue to partner with Logiag to provide record keeping support software, used to maintain records for all farm NMP and annual reporting requirement inputs. In addition, we offer support services for our clients that utilize more powerful Precision Agriculture software tools that are used to integrate precision ag data and equipment across various geo-spacial references across the farm acreage. There is no way of doing long-term agronomic planning without good records and analysis of those records. We try to provide our clients with several options for record keeping, at various levels of management, which is crucial for making data informed farm decisions.
FCS visits the farm as many times as it takes to understand your farm, how you operate, and what you need to be economically sustainable long into the future. For CAFO’s we offer monthly or quarterly on-site support to help the farm stay on track of the various record requirements.
Since its foundation, farmers have placed their confidence in FCS for the preparation of their CNMP, NMP, and CAFO permits. We have relationships that run over 20 years, helping our clients achieve long-term goals, planning for future expansions, and determining optimal management choices across the farm. Our farms trust our experience and science based approach to recommendations concerning fertilizers, crop rotation, tillage, and facility manure management.
We enjoy what we do and we hope to hear from you soon
