The Farmer Focus business model gives farmers ownership and empowers them to make better choices for their animals, farms, and the environment. The Farmer Focus model also eliminates the tournament pay model that pits farmer against farmer. Our model assures farmers a flat rate of pay per pound incentivizing cooperation amongst farmers and powering innovation on farms. Our farmers report that they earn between 25-35% more farming with us than competitors. This allows our farmers to reinvest profits into more sustainable farming methods and into their local communities.
At Farmer Focus we believe that the future of our planet is directly linked to the future of farming.
Here are some of the ways we are working to reduce our carbon footprint:
- Annually, we avoid up to 6M lbs of synthetic fertilizers (the leading cause of the soil health crisis) and prevent +172,000 lbs of herbicides from being applied.
- Through our packaging efforts, we save 70,000+ lbs of virgin plastic through reducing the use of plastic film. Prioritizing post-consumer recycled material to minimize our impact.
- Avoiding 10,237+ metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions in 2023 through supply chain management.
