Conflict, COVID-19, climate extremes, and the soaring costs of food, fuel, and fertilizer [are] bringing millions closer to the brink of starvation. But history shows that time and time again, American farmers have been leaders, and shapers of global food security.

David Beasley

Former UN World Food Chief

Without sustainable agriculture, we cannot have an orchestra, church, university, government, army, city, or any business. And the only economy that can sustain any city ultimately has to be based on food. No business or economy is sustainable until agriculture is and neither is any city.

Community Events

Behind our digital storefront, we’re pretty old-fashioned. We believe strong communities depend on real handshakes and face-to-face conversation. So while our team brings over a decade of digital marketing experience to bear for our producers, we specialize in creating local, real-world events to expand their reach.


A Crofter Original

To give as many independent farmers and ranchers a voice in the fight for ag independence, we’ve begun production on a new docuseries where producers like you can tell their own story.

Meating in the Middle: Crofter Market to connect ranchers, consumers

“The business platform we are building will connect producers and consumers – we aren’t a reseller, we don’t set prices. We just facilitate technology to bring two sides together. Products won’t be limited to just meat; anything that is legal to sell directly to consumers in the state will be allowed. Any grower can create an account, set their prices, and facilitate pickup, delivery or shipping,” says Clayson. “We are focusing on ranchers first because we feel like they are struggling the most at this point, but any kind of produce is allowed.”

Is it time to break up big ag?

Renewed attention to antitrust has been focussed on Big Tech, but concentration in agriculture may be an underlying source of rural America’s pro-Trump political backlash. “The agricultural industry is different than other industries because Capper-Volstead allows them to combine in ways that other individuals would go to jail for,” Allee A. Ramadhan, a former Justice Department antitrust attorney who led an investigation into the dairy industry, told me.

'They're Trying to Wipe Us Off the Map.' Small American Farmers nearing extinction

Suicides in farm communities are happening with alarming frequency. Farmers aren’t the only workers in the American economy being displaced by technology, but when they lose their jobs, they’re also ejected from their homes and the land that’s been in their family for generations. “It hits you so hard when you feel like you’re the one who is losing the legacy that your great-grandparents started,” said Randy Roecker, a Wisconsin dairy farmer who has struggled with depression and whose neighbor Leon Statz committed suicide last year after financial struggles forced him to sell his 50 dairy cows.

Sen. Mike Lee urges DOJ investigation into acquisition of lamb processing plant

Alarmed over the impact to the domestic food supply, Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee and 11 other members of Congress sent a letter to Justice Department Antitrust Division Assistant Attorney General Makan Delrahim, asking him to immediately open an investigation into the acquisition of a Colorado lamb processing facility.

“It is our understanding that JBS intends to permanently destroy all of the lamb processing equipment as soon as this week,” Senator Lee writes.
