Tractor Michael

Exclusive Strategy Session with Your Host, Michael Kilpatrick

Having owned and operated several businesses in the farming space, Michael has extensive hands-on experience with what it takes to build and grow a farming business.

He speaks at national conferences and has consulted with farms across the US.

Michael also runs his own farm (with value-added products), the Farm on Central. He not only "talks the talk" but he also "walks the walk"...in work boots.

In this strategy session, Michael will lay out the blueprint for what it takes to start your business.

Participants will also break up into small groups to share feedback on value-added business ideas. This is an amazing opportunity to meet and collaborate with your fellow farmers and business owners.


What if you could bring in an extra $1000 a week from your backyard or vacant lot?

Could you...

Provide joy and healing for your family and community though doing something you love?

Fulfill your dreams by working on your terms and your schedule?

Build a lifestyle you love and a business you're proud of?

Know you are part of a higher calling, a movement of passionate entrepreneurs seeking to change the status quo, and work towards a better food system?

Curtis Millsap SquareLike Curtis...

Curtis shares how building a lifestyle farm has allowed him to take six weeks off every year through stopping, figuring out what was important with his life, and making changes. Some of those include on-farm education, an Airbnb, and a pizza club, which has become one of the most anticipated events for their team and community!

Ruby ReidLike Ruby...

Ruby started giving away her pickles until her friends refused and started handing her money. Then she started selling at the farmers market, and her business blossomed! Her business has now grown to employ her and her partner. They have weathered two wildfires and a cross- country move! She's passionate about farmers earning what they're worth and showing how she can get up to 3x for her products with good branding!

Food Dollar

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 they are feeding their communities amazing food, providing educational experiences, and being respected and valued.
