How to Manage the Difficult Farm Employee from Senior Read more →
We believe you will gain many things: an improved ability to compete, the potential for enhanced financial prosperity and value, an opportunity for your operation to continue for future generations, specialized planning and coaching services, potentially higher revenues for what you produce and lower costs for inputs and equipment, access to new technologies and innovations, potential for access to capital, new skills and capabilities, and collective wisdom.
Absolutely not. FamilyFarms Group works with individual operations which work together “interdependently.” Each producer operation is separate, but when any one succeeds, all succeed as a group. The crops grown, inputs and equipment purchased could be impacted by involvement with FamilyFarms Group if members so choose. Each individual producer has full control and makes all decisions for their own operation.
No, but that is a common misconception. The only requirement that our new clients have to to attend crisis management and communication training which is for their benefit. There are no additional requirements for new members of FamilyFarms Group.
Our operations range from 2,000 acres to 25,000 acres. In total, FamilyFarms Group represents around 400,000 acres in the U.S. and Canada.
No – some are and some are not. All FamilyFarms Group members are urged to get their people, processes and procedures in place before growing. That being said, many of our members are in a good position to grow at the moment and are capitalizing on those opportunities. We will help you to grow at your own rate and attain your goals.
Members increase the acres they rent from landowners and farm management companies. Members purchase additional acres, although this approach is recommended only if working capital and infrastructure are in place. Other proprietary concepts developed by FamilyFarms Group for the benefit of its members are designed to help members grow their acres. We can help in all of these areas.
No; we couldn’t have that much of an impact. The consolidation trend is a factor the FamilyFarms Group members are adapting to, but we wish the trend was not occuring. This trend occurred in the livestock industry a number of years ago, and it is simply a matter of time before it is fully realized in the row crop industry. FamilyFarms Group member operations represent a relatively small amount of North American cropland and cannot significantly affect these reports.
Attend an introductory session (i.e., the concept meeting) to learn about the FamilyFarms Group system. Decide to join FamilyFarms Group, sign the contract and pay the start-up fee. Attend a week of orientation and training. Work with FamilyFarms Group expert consultants and your Team Coach through on-going participation in training and other opportunities (inputs purchases, sales, specialty contracts, etc.).
No. There are certainly benefits to working with FamilyFarms Group vendors, but you have complete control of the decisions for your operation.
