Company History

Hurley & Associates exists today because Ida Hurley wasn’t afraid of a challenge. In the late 1970s, Ida was keeping the books for several agricultural producers in the Charleston, Missouri area. At that time, there was little on-farm storage and most producers were operating in a harvest-and-sell situation. Ida believed that farmers and their families could enjoy a more stable, prosperous lifestyle by changing the way they marketed their crops and livestock.

Farming has changed a great deal since our company got its start. What hasn’t changed is the mission that motivated Ida—“To help our clients realize economic stability while maintaining the dignity and value of the farm families and their communities.” Each of our representatives lives that mission.

Today, our business has grown to serve agricultural producers in 13 states, with most of them coming to us by word of mouth. While that growth is nice, we’re most proud of the fact that farm families who first signed on with Ida are still with us today. In fact, we retain 90%-95% of our clients year-in and year-out.

We believe that loyalty is due to a very personal approach that yields consistent results. We don’t believe it’s possible to do a great job for our clients unless we take the time to get to know them—as people, as well as producers. It’s not the easiest approach, just the best.

If you’re looking for someone who will take every aspect of your world into account when developing an integrated risk management, marketing, and financial plan for your business, you’ve arrived. Welcome to Hurley and Associates. We look forward to getting to know you.
