Let's Build Your Highly Profitable Farm Together
Small Farm University is now closed. If you'd like to be one of the first to notified when we reopen, apply for membership.
When you first started...
Did it look something like this?
  • "I want to work hard but not 100+ hours / week!" 
    Instead, calling yourself a workaholic isn't just the norm... it's an understatement.
  • "I want to sell my products and feel good about it!" 
    Instead, the stress can sometimes be overwhelming... the ups and downs of working a farm, the toll it takes on your family, and on and on.
  • "I care for the environment and want to bring change to my community!" 
    Instead, you're focused on keeping your head above the water. So you've had to resort to spending your time, money and resources on keeping the income flowing.
Hey, we get it...
When we first started...
We were probably a lot like you...

We NEVER thought we would be able to pay all the bills. And we struggled with producing crops, finding the right workers, and marketing to the right customers.

And then something happened...
But it didn't happen all at once...
First, We RESEARCHED Everything
We read every business book we could get our hands on.
We studied sales methodologies outside our industry.
We learned marketing from the best of the best.
We spent THOUSANDS of dollars on farming tips & tricks.
Next, We TESTED Everything
And do you know what happened?
Well, the results have been nothing short of BREATHTAKING...
  • Our farm and the farms we helped became highly profitable and we've been able to invest in things we never thought possible (like expensive tractor toys).
  • Our products became the envy of chefs all over, so much so that they're coming to us, instead of the other way around. (Our referral business is booming!)
  • Reccuring revenue became a large part of our business, money we could count on each month rolling in and paying the bills, with out the stress of constantly having to market (a cash flywheel which keeps on turning).
  • We gained back more time than we ever thought or dreamed possible, time to spend with family, friends, and on causes we care about.
  • We were able to focus on making an impact in our communities and the world.
Then We SHARED Our Insights with Even More Farmers
And here's what happened...
Stories like this...
And farmers transformed in ways unique to them...
"Just knowing that you're out there as a resource is great. We feel like 'you have our back.' And it's nice to know that you've been on the front lines doing what we're trying to do."
- Jim Schultz, Red Shirt Farm
"The U has been a great place to get good, quick answers."
- Joshua Guess
"Michael has been a great sounding board for a variety of questions and always provides good answers and resources which I know I can trust."
- Sam
"Having a forum of small producers who address each others challenges is helpful and encouraging. Knowing all of it is closely overseen by Michael who has the experience to cut to the core of the situation is vital to our operation. Thank you for taking us to the next level in our market gardening endeavor."
- Natalie Howell
Now we want to share those insights with you...

What's All This Worth to You?
To put it another way...

What do you need right now to get you "over the hump" so you can focus on growing your profits fast?

Or, to put it this way...
What Would It Cost You to Hire a "Farming Superhero"?
Here's what it costs to work with us directly: $250/hour

Now, we don't know what the rate is where you are right now...

So, what do YOU think it would take to get over that hump?

How many hours? How much per hour?

Can you come up with a rough amount in your mind?

I mean, think about it for a sec... How many thousands of dollars would it cost you?

Okay, do you have that number in your mind?

If so, answer this for yourself...
What Would It Cost You if You Did NOTHING?
The truth is...

Nothing would change.

And that's just it...

No, your life won't tailspin out of control.

Your farm?

It'll probably still be there.

(After all, you've been working WAY too much, and you'll probably continue to do so.)

And your peace of mind?

Well, it'll stay like it is, which is... where exactly?


If you aren't satisfied with where you're at, then keep reading because this is perhaps the most important thing you can do for your farm, your business, and your sanity this year...
