Why Our Work Matters
What We Do
The modern farmer faces a wide range of complex issues every day. They spend time tending to soils, tracking crop growth cycles and operating heavy machinery, while keeping an eye on financial budget.
The FBN network helps level the playing field for farmers with unbiased information, profit enhancing farm analysis, network buying power and new crop marketing opportunities.
With the use of data-analytics, farmers are able to make data-driven decisions and obtain objective information on their seeds, soil and fertility on their farms and other farms around them, anonymously. We’re also helping farmers to rethink their crop marketing planning and execution, reduce their risk through data-backed crop insurance and reduce their health coverage costs. We’re a one-stop shop to help their business thrive.
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. By working together, these farmers knew they could learn vastly more than by looking only at their own farms, thereby unlocking the true power of the precision farm data they’d paid for. When these innovative farmers met with technologists, scientists and entrepreneurs, this dream became a reality - Farmers Business Network. Now, what started as the dream of a handful of farmers in 2014, has spread to a network of thousands of the best farmers managing tens of million acres in just a few years. When farmers connect, farmers win - and the services, technology and network keep growing.

Notice to Recruiters & Staffing Agencies
Farmer's Business Network, Inc. and its affiliates and subsidiaries ("FBN") have an internal recruiting department. From time-to-time FBN may supplement that internal capability by engaging the assistance of temporary staffing agencies, placement services, and professional recruiters of its own choice (“Agency”). Based on the foregoing, temporary staffing agencies, placement services, and professional recruiters not specifically engaged by FBN (“Non-Contracted Agency”) are hereby expressly directed NOT to contact FBN employees directly in an attempt to present candidates – FBN's recruiting team or other authorized FBN personnel must present ALL candidates to hiring managers.
To protect the interests of all parties, FBN will not accept unsolicited resumes from any source other than directly from a candidate. Any unsolicited resumes sent to FBN, including unsolicited resumes sent to any FBN mailing address, fax machine or email address, directly to FBN employees, or to FBN's career site will be considered FBN property. FBN will NOT pay a fee for any placement resulting from the receipt of an unsolicited resume. FBN will consider any candidate for whom any Non-Contracted Agency has submitted an unsolicited resume to have been referred by the Non-Contracted Agency free of any charges or fees.
Any Agency must obtain advance written approval from FBN's recruiting function to submit resumes, and then only in conjunction with a valid fully-executed contract for service and in response to a specific job opening or openings for which the Agency is asked to make submissions. FBN will not pay a fee to any Non-Contracted Agency that does not have such agreement in place.
Agency agreements will only be valid if in writing and signed by an officer of FBN or his or her designee. No other FBN employee is authorized to bind FBN to any agreement regarding the placement of candidates by an Agency. FBN hereby specifically rejects, and denies any liability under, any agreement purporting to be accepted based on negative consent, negotiation with a candidate, performance, or any means other than the signature of an authorized FBN officer.
