The Farm Collaborative

We manage a farmer tool library with specialty farm equipment for rent including a potato harvester, walk behind tractor, All-Crop harvester, and more. We offer a housing library renting out tiny homes to be used for seasonal on-farm housing (must be approved by each county). Our farmer incubator program consults people that would like to try farming as a profession. After a year as an intern on the farm, incubators will learn about crop planning, business planning, and seed ordering and implement their own plot and business plan. Incubators will be able to use farm equipment and infrastructure and learn about land leases and land opportunities in the area.

California Agricultural Mediation Program

Our program provides FREE mediation to producers and service providers on covered topics, which are: debt/credit issues, succession planning, leases, neighbor disputes, organic certification, grazing on National Forest lands, USDA loan and program issues as well as any topic the Secretary of Agriculture deems appropriate. What is mediation? Mediation means a trained professional who is not involved personally in a situation helps the parties make a plan for whatever challenge is on the table. The process is confidential and while the professional can support the conversation, the results are always up to the parties.
