Your Trusted Advisors



Who We Are

Blue Reef Agri-Marketing was founded in early 2010 by Chip Nellinger and Adam Dryer. Growing up in farming families, both Chip and Adam had a passion for agriculture and continued pursuing professional backgrounds within the industry. Today, the two have over twenty-five years of experience managing risks for both grain and livestock operations. With an industry focused on general risk management recommendations rather than strictly focused on the producer, Chip and Adam noticed a need for personal, one-on-one connections with producers and the ability to focus on each operation as an individual with different risk management needs. With that, Blue Reef Agri-Marketing was born.

What We Do

Many factors play into the specific needs of an operation - and when it comes to managing the risks involved in such an ever-changing industry, taking the time to get to know each operation allows Blue Reef Agri-Marketing to be successful. The team at Blue Reef is made up of industry professionals stemming from different agricultural backgrounds and diverse skill sets. Not only do you have a dedicated advisor at your side every step of the way, but the collaboration from a team of experienced advisors looking to achieve the same goal - protecting your bottom line.
