FarmOn! Foundation

FOOD EDUCATION THROUGH FARM PRESERVATION

FarmOn! Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, is working to fill the succession gap on family farms in rural America. Rapid changes in rural economies have transformed the agricultural sector. Increasingly, independent and family-run farms are being left with nobody to run them, as young people continue to migrate to urban centers in larger and larger numbers. FarmOn! wants to be part of the solution. We create and fund educational programs to provide the next generation of farmers with the skills and experience necessary to ensure that they can continue to feed us sustainably, ethically, and profitably.

We believe that, by nurturing and inspiring the entrepreneurial spirit of young people, we have the potential to revive rural economies nationwide. It is our goal to provide a replicable model for conscious food production and distribution that we can then export to communities around the country.

We envision a world where sustainable agriculture is valued and profitable.We invite you to learn more and get involved with your friends and family by taking action. Every child should serve on a farm! Start the conversation with us @FarmOnFarmOn or visit us at Empire Farm anytime of the year.

FarmOn! Foundation is dedicated to bringing awareness to food choices and sources and reinvigorating respect for farming, inspiring young people to choose agricultural careers to create an economic engine connecting rural and urban marketplaces to rebuild a robust and resilient agricultural community and local economies for rural prosperity and succession on farms.

Our Four Guiding Principles

COMMUNITY

A place where community gathers and engages in nature with food and agriculture experiences at an organic working farm.

SUSTAINABILITY

Providing project based learning for youth to learn soft skills, healthy lifestyles, how to eat, how to do business and why it is important to work and earn.

COMMERCE

Economic Development is the cornerstone of agriculture and why we must view farming as a profitable, noble and respected profession is based in how we buy food.

SUCCESSION

By training young farmers in the business of food and connecting rural and urban marketplaces for commerce with volume, we aim to fill the succession gap on the family farm with with the next generation to feed us honestly by providing viable livelihoods that pay a fair living wage to sustain and profit.
