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.
