MARKETING YOUR FARM JUST GOT EASIER!

An online membership where you'll learn how to build your brand and attract customers who'll pay the prices your farm business needs to thrive!

THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF SMALL FARMERS:

1

THE MAJORITY WHO

FLOUNDER


they used to enjoy farming. Now, they're overwhelmed with chores, off-farm jobs and a constant battle to FIND CUSTOMERS willing to PAY the prices they need. they struggle with marketing their farm's products and wonder if they'll ever get ahead (sound familiar?)

2

THE MINORITY WHO

FLOURISH


They love farming and have created a tribe of loyal fans. they have a constant waitlist of customers who not only pay premium prices, but cheerlead for them too. other farmers look on with envy at how easy they make it seem and wonder what their secret is

SO, WHAT'S THEIR SECRET?

Why do so few family farmers flourish while so many flounder?

The answer is one word:

MARKETING

Flourishing farmers excel in three

 CRITICAL SUCCESS SKILLS

1

Establishing a 

FARM BRAND

because

She knows that her farm isn't a hobby...it's a business. And like Apple, Starbucks, Disney and all great businesses, she knows it's critical to build a brand so that her farm is the first one recalled by consumers, markets, chefs and retailers.

2

Attracting

SUPPORTERS

by

Taking a stand that inspires others, excelling at service positioning products that the market desires and values. He also excels at using online marketing (web/social media) to connect with customers and create a loyal following.

3

Commanding a 

PREMIUM

because

These farmers know they aren't producing a commodity product. Instead of constantly trying to "sell" they market effectively to create pent-up demand. They create their own market and command prices they need, and deserve.

Now, for the good news...

 YOU CAN LEARN THESE SKILLS, TOO!

I CREATED THIS ACADEMY TO TEACH YOU HOW TO BECOME A FLOURISHING FARMER!

HI, I'M TIM YOUNG. YOUR FARM MARKETING MENTOR

In 2007 my wife and I started a sustainable livestock farm that produced lots of protein products. We operated one of the first meat CSA's, packing 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 successful farm business wasn't the farming. It wasn't even Mother Nature.

IT WAS THE MARKETING.

Fortunately, we excelled at that, winning media attention from the New York Times, CNN, NPR, ACRES USA, The Morning Joe show and many other outlets. We built a loyal subscriber base numbering several thousand, always sold out of our farm products and hosted many farm events. And I've been fortunate to teach hundreds of students 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 learn to market and grow their farm businesses. So I created this, the Small Farm Nation Academy.

I genuinely love creating training content and providing one-to-one coaching that helps farmers to "get growing!"

 Keep reading to see what real farmers have to say about the Academy.

REAL PEOPLE, REAL FARMS, REAL RESULTS

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!  ”

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.”
