Thank you for visiting Acres & Shares and considering our service! It would be an honor to help sell your land!

“Raised on a northeastern North Dakota farm, I am blessed to stay connected to agriculture and serve as a trusted advisor to Minnesota and North Dakota landowners. It’s been so much fun helping landowners from across the country putting deals together and taking care of the little things that make their transaction smooth and successful. I’d love to do the same for you!”

What should you look for in a farmland broker?

Experience and product knowledge

Jayson Menke is one of the most experienced farmland brokers in eastern North Dakota and northwest Minnesota. In addition to the first-hand knowledge gained, he’s also had an opportunity to work with and learn from some of the best farm real estate agents and appraisers in the region. Below is a quick glance at his experience:

  • North Dakota and Minnesota Real Estate licenses since 2000
  • Botsford Qualey Land Company lead broker 2009 – 2011
  • Involved in 80 + transactions stretching 12,600 + acres amassing $34.8 + Million from fall 2011 to fall 2018
  • Farmers National Company Real Estate Award Winner from 2011 to 2017 including one President’s Circle, four Gold Eagle and two Silver Eagle awards.





After experience, the next considerations are what level of service will your broker provide? How well do they communicate?

With college degrees in communications and sociology, Menke knows how to build relationships and connect with sellers, buyers and influencers.

Selling your farm starts with listening to your story. Your goals. Your objectives.

After initial communication, a property inspection and broker analysis are completed. This includes reviewing comparable sales, soils maps, aerial photos and crop history maps.

As part of the broker analysis, we will also help you pick a sale type that works best for your farm:

  • Sealed Bid
  • Conventional Listing
  • Auction
  • Oral Bidding


Anyone can sell your farm. But not everyone can provide the level of service you need and deserve!

While some farms sell right away, others may not. This is where experience, communication, and patience are beneficial. Paying attention to detail and taking care of loose ends are an Acres & Shares strength and are vital for a successful transaction. Once your land has sold, we will execute agreements and coordinate the closing which takes approx. 30 to 45 days after agreements are completed.

We’ll create a personalized marketing plan for you:

  • Customized detailed brochure

    • Mailed to a targeted listing of potential buyers and influencers

    • Posted on

  • Print advertising – Local and regional newspapers and magazines

  • – Your property will be promoted on, which receives 3.8 million monthly visits on Lands of America, LandAndFarm, and including 45+ Partner Sites

  • Signage placed on your property

  • Social media – Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram
