Defining FamilyFarms Group
FamilyFarms Group is a member-owned network of family farm operators, agricultural experts and suppliers.
We’re working together to help preserve the legacy of family farms as consolidation hits the row crop industry.
Our network provides strength in numbers (of acres, people, and knowledge) to help your family farm grow and compete.
When you join FamilyFarms Group, it’s as if you’ve hired that one phenomenal employee who can:
- Provide expertise and support in 17+ business categories

- Connect you with peer farm operators throughout our continent.
- Link you to suppliers and buyers as part of a collective 700,000 acres – you get advantages of the combined economies of scale
