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.

FBN works by gathering disparate data directly from its farmer members, then analyzes the data and converts it into insights and perspectives that can help farmers make better decisions, manage risk and ultimately increase the profitability of their farming operations.  FBN uses this information to empower farmers by creating network and data driven commerce opportunities for farmers that save them money on inputs, capital and marketing.
