Farmers Business Network® membership is now free for Canadian farmers

Tech-forward agriculture farming business

Farmers Business Network® made a big announcement on September 15, 2020: FBN® membership is now free* to family farmers in five Canadian provinces where it currently does business: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.

Farmers who sign up for a free FBN membership will enjoy access to a select range of ever-expanding products and services without having to pay an annual membership fee.

It’s become increasingly difficult for farmers over the past number of years, and 2020 might have been the hardest one yet. Providing free membership with access to select offerings — all of which are focused on creating transparency, competition and helping lower costs and increasing profit potential — is one significant way to step up even more to support Canadian farmers.

These do not guarantee actual results. Our models, data and recommendations may change over time. Individual results may vary, as weather, agronomic conditions and farming practices differ across growers, locations and years.
