At Farmers Business Network®, we are on a mission to put Farmers First® by offering a one-stop-shop platform for products, services, and data that make a difference in farmers’ businesses and lives.
We are disrupting and transforming an industry that has been historically underserved by digital technology and innovation - whether it’s through providing access to high ROI farm inputs via our direct-to-farm e-commerce store, offering data science-driven agronomic insights about farmers’ paddocks, or helping farmers sell their crop more intelligently and independently.
Our Global Teams
Our FBN Direct team makes it easy for farmers to access great-value agricultural inputs and services via our online store and timely direct-to-farm delivery.
The FBN Financial team provides farmers with ag lending solutions, crop marketing services and personalised insurance products to support their operations and maximise their profit potential.
Our Engineering team is developing innovative software for FBN’s e-commerce, fintech, and sustainability platforms
Our Product team drives the vision, roadmap, and design of Farmers First experiences across our suite of digital offerings.
FBN’s Data Science & Analytics team is at the forefront of applying big data to help farmers - data science underlies every product we build at FBN and is helping drive agricultural scientific discoveries.
Our corporate functions are essential specialist teams that work to ensure the strategic, efficient and successful running of FBN’s day-to-day business.
Our values serve as the foundation for who we are and how we operate our business at FBN.
Act Like An Owner
We are all accountable for the actions and decisions we make, and we do whatever it takes to deliver on our commitments (to each other and to our customers). We think commercially, recognising the responsibility we have to the short and long-term interests of each other, FBN and customers.
Be a Great Team
We are one team that works together in service of our mission. We trust each other to play our parts, while challenging each other to do our best work. We collaborate enthusiastically and communicate broadly. We recognise that great results come from the actions of teams working together.
Serve Family Farmers
We are always Farmers First. Everything we do is in service of our farmers’ wellbeing and longevity. We equip farmers with the products, services, and information needed to promote short and long-term prosperity. We are courageous in action, taking on the hardest problems that farmers face.
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are fundamental and foundational pillars of who we are and how we go about our business at FBN. We treat each other, and the communities we interact with, with respect, and celebrate the different perspectives and experiences that every team member brings. We have a strong, grassroots effort to advance DEI efforts at FBN, and we’re encouraging and empowering individuals at all levels across the organisation to get involved. Our DEI Co-Operative is a cross-functional group that partners across the organisation to advance initiatives related to diversity, equity and inclusion. The DEI Co-Op is focused on three categories of goals:
Education & Literacy
Explore and train employees on topics such as unconscious bias, anti-racism, allyship, and inclusive communication.
Create and support Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). Several groups have been established by employees at all levels (including executive sponsors), such as Women @ FBN, PRIDE @ FBN (LGBTQIA+ ERG), Veterans n’ Farming and Adelante (Latinx ERG).
Design diverse and equitable recruiting and sourcing practices, perform pay equity analysis across functions, and develop a transparent internal mobility program.
FBN strives to provide our employees and their families with a competitive, fair, and inclusive benefits experience that is focused on supporting their physical, financial, and emotional wellbeing. Our benefits are thoughtfully designed to align with our core values and power the prosperity of our workforce.
