Hi, I’m Farmer Kevin.I was 24, and had just finished my last apprenticeship.
I tried to find land to buy or lease.I didn’t have a reputation yet or enough funding.
I applied to FarmStacker online.FarmStacker helped me put together my business plan and gaveme some funding!
FarmStacker’s database connected me to a grass-fed cattle ranchthat had some unused land for my business.FarmStacker crafted a mutually beneficial lease to share the land.
The landowner loved the extra income and better grass for his cows.I was able to launch my farm with just $20,000.
I was profitable from the start!We started thinking long term.
FarmStacker’s network connected me with other small producers towin large supplier contracts.Farming felt like a career!
FarmStacker enabled the rancher to sell me his farm.He felt good about leaving it in my hands.
Now, FarmStacker lets me help new young farmers.Because of FarmStacker, I was able to start. And because I wasable to start, I was able to succeed.
