Farmers don’t need to be scurrying around trying to wring every bushel of crop from every acre. Improving the quality of life for farmers today (which includes being able to actually pay themselves a wage, which is rare on many farms this year) will be better for everyone, including for our food system in the future. Diversifying farm businesses and helping farmers create businesses that not only support their families but could potentially employ others — that’s a path to sustainable rural communities, sustainable foodsheds, and a sustainable future.

The Future of Farming is Not Farming

From driverless tractors and robotic pickers to technologies that preserve fresh produce 5x longer, we are obsessed with using technology to solve the many, many challenges in our food system.
