About Us

A legacy built by four generations of hard work

Hageman is a multigenerational family business that exists to create shared success by investing in the ground up.  Rooted in deep understanding of agriculture, our business has grown to include investments in real estate and entrepreneurial ventures.

Our family has been taught by the generations that came before us to “leave it better than you found it,” and we carry that same tradition today. We strive to leave our land better than we found it by growing food on our farms to help feed the world, and building communities that provide an enriching place to live, work, and grow. We care deeply about generational impact, and make investments in people to cultivate future generations of innovative entrepreneurs and leaders. We build lasting relationships with our team members, business partners, and community partners. We are passionate about the work we do.

Our Roots

Our Approach

Aligning interests and values

At Hageman, we focus on building an exceptional team with expertise and capability to create shared success. We believe if we consistently do the right thing, we will build trust; if we take ownership in our responsibilities, we’ll be consistently good at what we do; if we are team players, we’ll have patience and a big picture perspective; and if we strive to leave it better than we found it, we’ll make a lasting impact.

Partner With Us

Shared Values and Mutual Success

Hageman has been a long-term growth partner with Avenue, and similar to any lasting partnership we have encountered hurdles together. Our mutual success is forged in the shared values of honesty and team-based solutions, creating an approach that fosters positive outcomes even when faced with challenges. It is a true testament of partnership to be able to operate in full transparency and know the other party has your best interests in mind.

Hageman helped us start Ignite from the ground up. Our experience has been excellent and they have added value every step of the way. They are great people who truly care about the project and the people they are partnering with. We are proud to call Hageman Group our partners.

Trust, Respect, and Common Goals

Having the support, credibility, and resources that Hageman brought to the partnership with Rebar played an extraordinary role. I truly appreciate the intangible value of how Hageman treats partners consistent with their core values. In a business that can have some tough days, it’s comforting to have a partner you trust, respect, and share a common goal with to do things the right way. We look forward to our next partnerships with the Hageman team.

Our relationship with the Hageman Group has been a true “partnership.” Through ups and downs, we are able to work with them to collectively identify and address problems, as well as enjoy the shared successes. We are grateful to count the Hageman team as not only a valued partnership, but as truly great friends, and we are excited about the opportunities we have to further our relationship.

Team-player Mentality

Hageman has strived to exceed mutual expectations with Weaver since the beginning of our relationship. This team-player mentality permeates their culture and shows in the warm welcome you can expect from every employee in the Hageman family. I personally look forward to the respect, competence, and diligence that I have found to be ubiquitous to the Hageman way of doing business.

Do What's Right

Hageman brings not just patient capital to the table but also great business acumen and a willingness to roll up their sleeves to tackle opportunities. When Covid-19 emerged in early 2020, Hageman reached out to let me know that should there be a need for additional liquidity to weather the potential coming storm that I could sleep well knowing they had our backs. It’s hard to put a price tag on that kind of peace of mind.

Great Stewards of Farmland

It has been my pleasure to work with Hageman on managing commodity price risk since the 1980s. Over the past 40 years, I have referred several buyers and sellers of farmland to Hageman. They are great stewards of farmland and are a pleasure to do business with.
