What do you stand to lose by not joining?

THINK ABOUT IT...

  • How much is it costing you having to sell on price and discount your farm products?
  • How many potential customers don't even know about your farm?
  • Do you ever have freezers/coolers full of food you can't sell? Or worse yet, good food you end up composting or feeding to livestock? How much is that costing you in carrying the inventory and lost sales?
  • question-circle-o
    Have you ever wasted a day at the farmers market and had to haul back all that you couldn't sell? What did that cost you in terms of time, money, stress and time away from your family?
  • question-circle-o
    Do potential customers even understand why they should buy from you rather than at the supermarket?
  • question-circle-o
    How long can your farm stay in business without enough customers to pay the prices you deserve?

Small FArm Nation REVIEWS from real farmers

Surpasses every farm marketing course!
“The Small Farm Nation Academy surpasses every other farm marketing course I've taken! I've loved every video, watching most more than once before I put it into action.  Tim's feedback is the best part...it's obvious that Tim wants me to succeed, and THAT's motivating!  ”

Easy to Understand!
“Tim has put together some great content in short, easy to understand videos that us busy small farmers that wear more than one family hat, can make the time to squeeze in.”

Krista Willison Raymond

Worth the small price!
“Join when you are starting your business, and stay on, to learn as you go, for less than a cup of coffee a day. Would you spend that to get into markets for your carefully raised products? I do. Worth the small price.”

#businesssaver“I see this lifting our business out of a stall. My husband and I are extremely invested and excited about what we've watched and implemented. I originally thought the course would help me with a website. Who knew it was actually a coaching session for my business?! Thank you so much.”

For Non-Farmers Too
“After reading Tim's books and hearing his podcast I knew he was a real sharp business person with a heart for helping people. So when the Small Farm Nation Academy opened, I jumped in immediately. I'm finding the courses on marketing just as relevant to my pest control business today as they will be to my future farm business!”

Extremely Impressed!
“Tim's feedback helped me focus on what needs to be done and the steps I need to take to get there--all before even following the first course. His knowledge and desire to help his fellow farmer shines through! I've been extremely impressed with the content of the academy!”

Just Do It!
“I have been extremely impressed with the content of the academy. Tim offered no nonsense, proven strategies geared toward our farm marketing needs. The help with our website design and its content was huge. The steps that followed allowed us to drop our entire marketing budget to just our monthly installment to maintain our website. In one year, we grew our customer base to easily sell out of product weekly using e-mail campaigns that SFN walked us through initially. We are completely free from social media and the ever changing whims of Facebook and Instagram. We now “own” our customer base and connect directly with them on our terms. Our Small Farm Nation membership allowed us to do what we really love, farm. It’s a must for anyone wanting to take their farm business to the next level. ”

Tim has been invaluable in helping me realize my farm dream!
“ One goal I had was to create a weekly podcast to engage with my customers and to help build my email list. Tim kept bringing me back on track recommending that I the focus on cheese. Hooray! I'm now fully engaged with the podcast which revolves around cheese. I now have the proper perspective on how to use it to market my business. Thank you so much Tim!!

Peaceful Heart Farm

It's almost night and day looking at where our marketing was a year ago (prior to joining the SFN Academy) and today. People are finding us now via the web. We're also selling out at times which is a new but good problem to have (growing pains). The academy has been a big part of our growth so thanks and keep doing what you're doing!

HI, I'M TIM YOUNG!

YOUR FARM MARKETING MENTOR

I created Small Farm Nation Academy to teach you how you how to get more customers and have a financially sustainable farm business!

In 2007 my wife and I started a sustainable livestock farm. We operated one of the first meat CSA's, filling orders with grassfed beef, pastured poultry, lamb, free-range eggs, woodlot pork, rabbit…seems like we did it all. Then we opened a dairy, milked Jersey cows and produced both raw milk and award-winning farmstead cheese.  We sold our products directly to wonderful families, as well as to Whole Foods, Kroger and Earthfare. 

Like you, we love being connected to the land and sharing the fruits of the land and our labor with customers who value what we do. But we found that the most challenging part of building a thriving farm business wasn't the farming. It wasn't even limited finances or Mother Nature.

THE HARDEST PART OF RUNNING A FARM WAS THE MARKETING!

We had no idea how much "farming" time needed to be devoted to marketing. If you've got a farm, you know what I'm talking about. Fortunately, we excelled at marketing, winning media attention from the New York Times,  NPR, CNN, ACRES USA, The Cooking Channel, RFD TV, MSNBC, Garden & Gun and other outlets. We built a loyal subscriber base of several thousand, always sold out of our farm products and hosted many farm events. And, I've been fortunate to mentor hundreds of students on how to start and grow their own farm businesses.  

In 2017 I decided to take all of my marketing and farming knowledge and experience to help small farmers like you learn how to market and grow their farm products. So I created the Small Farm Nation Academy. I genuinely love helping my farm members to "get growing!"
