Texas Chapter of ASFMRA

Welcome to the Texas Chapter of ASFMRA!

The Texas Chapter was chartered in 1978 to empower rural property professionals by providing education and promoting ethical and professional standards. The Chapter promotes the professions of farm management, agricultural consulting, and rural appraisal by holding meetings for the exchange of ideas, conducting education, and holding its members to a Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Practice. 

The Chapter holds two annual meetings in the Spring and Fall of each year, as well as publishes, in April each year, the Texas Rural Land Value Trends.
