ABOUT FBN

Farmers Business Network (FBNSM) is a rapidly growing data and commerce platform for farmers. FBN brings data science, machine learning, and peer-to-peer networking to agriculture. We’re creating the fastest-growing network of farmers in America, who in turn have already built the largest geospatial farm dataset - nine million acres worth (and still growing). The data have proved to be incredibly potent and farmers have asked for other ways FBN can be an independent and unbiased business partner to their farms.

Last fall, we launched FBNSM Procurement, FBN’s service that procures low-cost, high-value inputs for farmers by leveraging the buying power and data-richness of its farmer network. Procurement has helped hundreds of farmers fundamentally change the way they purchase their inputs. We are looking to scale this service from hundreds to thousands of farmers over the course of the next year.

FBN is an advocate for the farmer and was created by farmers, for farmers. We are proudly Farmers First. We are well-capitalized by leading venture capital firms, including Google Ventures and Kleiner Perkins. Our work culture is dynamic and non-hierarchical (we need to be in order to operate effectively across 13 states), offering competitive compensation and benefits.
