Why you’ll fit in

Agriculture is a lonely endeavor. So we’re forming a tribe of like minded ag folks dedicated to building better ag operations.

This peer group is for you if you can relate to these four cornerstones:

1 Business Minded

Fundamental business principles create the sound foundation to build a profitable and sustainable ag operation. By cutting through the noise and focusing on these essentials, we can eliminate distractions, make informed decisions, and work effectively towards long-term legacy building.

2 Foster Connections

A strong network is our lifeline in agriculture. Connecting with like-minded peers and experts not only combats industry isolation but also sparks innovative solutions tailored to our unique challenges. Building lasting relationships reveals the true benefit our community provides.

3 Givers Not Takers

Sharing insights and experiences enriches both individual operations and the industry at large. By adopting a giving mindset and sharing freely of our insights, we create a cycle of mutual benefit that drives overall progress.

4 Legacy Builders

Our focus isn’t on get rich quick schemes, but on building sustainable operations that last for generations. The ultimate reward lies in leaving a lasting, positive impact on both the agricultural industry and the communities we serve.

Still have questions? Here’s a recent post where the Braintrust Ag community is further defined and I give a closer look behind the scenes.
