You deserve more.
According to the USDA, over 90% of the food dollar winds up going to processors, marketers, and retailers.
And now, more than ever, is the best time for farmers to start producing clean, nutritious food for our communities and bypass the system.
That's why we created this summit - from farmers and artisans, for farmers - to learn how to make more from their farms with less work.
At our farm, we started down this road when we had an abundance of cucumbers. With my mom's recipe, we spent the afternoon shoving them into jars with garlic and dill.
Then we realized we had created a product we could sell for several months and also triple our profit.
That's what we want for you.
We want to see farmers relaxed, spending time with their families, enjoying their farm and knowing that they are feeding their communities amazing food, providing educational experiences, and being respected and valued.
What if you could bring in an extra $1000 a week from your backyard or vacant lot?
