Group: Farm Impossible

Welcome

This project was developed at the 6th Annual Stinner Summit.  The project title, support and objectives are:  

 

Farm: Impossible ($2,850 in support from the Stinner Endowment, plus additional commitments of other capitals)

Create a show or documentary about starting or changing a

farm based on the popular show: “Restaurant: Impossible.”

• Utilize a core team of experts: horticulture/growing, legal/

insurance, accounting/record keeping, logistics, cooperation,

marketing/agritourism, energy

• Have farms apply to participate: agree to make some

changes, disclose records and farm experience, target specialty

crops, provide narrative of why they are participating.

• Budget: Funds will cover travel for planning, marketing, research

and time of experts, seed money for first year implementation.

The Countryside Conservancy and farmers will

also assist in funds sourcing.

We are looking for production planning and farm management software (or SAAS) which are geared toward small to mid-size specialty crop producers. Just comment to this post with your recommendations. Examples include AgSquared and FarmLogs.
