Proudly Farmers First  SM

FBN  SM is on a mission to create a future of farming that puts Farmers First by democratizing information, providing unbiased analytics, and creating competition for farmers’ business.

Farm-Born Values

Farmers are the ultimate entrepreneurs — managing complex businesses on their own when the odds are often stacked against them. FBN strives to have the same values and work ethic as the farmer entrepreneurs in the network. Many FBN team members are farmers, grew up on farms, or have a deep connection to the land, so this is personal.

Farmers First

Independent and Unbiased

Honesty, Fairness, and Trust

Democratizing Information

Conceived by Farmers, Built by Innovators, and Improved Together

The FBN Network came about when farmers wanted to develop an independent, unbiased, and objective farmer-driven information source — no marketing fluff, just the facts on raw performance. They knew that if they could share their agronomic precision data with one another, they could all make better decisions on seeds and agronomics.

Working together, they knew they could learn vastly more than by looking only at just their own farms, thereby unlocking the true power of the precision farm data they’d paid for. These farmers wanted objective information on seeds, fertility, soils and dreamed of what might be discovered scientifically from having more data. They wanted transparency and to be treated fairly in the market. They wanted to build a company that reflected their values and truly put them, the farmers, first.

When these innovative farmers met with technologists, scientists, and entrepreneurs, this dream become a reality — Farmers Business Network  SM. At every point along the way, the FBN team has listened closely to its earliest farmers and dozens of farmer advisors to make sure the network is building a future of farming that truly puts Farmers First.

What started as the dream of a handful of farmers in 2014 spread to a network of thousands of America’s best farmers managing over 8 million acres in just two years. As each new farmer joins the FBN Network, every member’s seed information, agronomic analytics, and buying power gets stronger. When farmers connect, farmers win - and the services, technology, and network keep growing.
