- The Heartland Agricultural Services Team
Douglas Oberst is the founder of Heartland Agricultural Services, LLC.
Doug is also a founding partner in 12 Corners Vineyards, a Berrien County vineyard operation consisting primarily of wine-grape plantings as well as cherries. A premium winery and small conference center are located on site as well. Additionally, the Oberst family maintains an ag-real estate company known as Oberst Farms, LLC.
Doug's writings have been published in Farm Futures Magazine and he is an accredited instructor for the USDA's Farm Service Agency, teaching farm financial management. He has also assisted in special programs to assist minority farm owners throughout southern Michigan.
While attending Alma College where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree, Doug continued to maintain an interest in his family's 900-acre farm in the Saginaw Valley. The farm was located in an area that produced sugar beets, dry beans, cash grains, and pickles.
Doug has served on various boards and committees including the Center for the Arts, Humane Society, Cooperative Extension Advisory Committee, and several church boards.
Heartland Ag, and Doug Oberst specifically, has helped us to navigate the challenges of both purchasing and selling numerous properties over the last 20+ years. Doug’s previous career in the Commercial Banking industry gives him the knowledge of financial options available to his clients interested in purchasing land as well as the lending institutions that do Ag loans. Doug also does a stellar job as negotiating between buyers & sellers to work out the best “deal” for both parties. Heartland Agricultural Services is our “Go-To” anytime we decide to buy or sell property.Liddy & Jim Riccioni
