Bootstrap A Farm Businesses Built for a Changing Economy

Hey Folks, Brandon Youst of Bootstrap Farmer here.

You might be asking yourself, what's this all about and WHY are we doing this?

Incubator Mission

We want to build OUR business through the value creation of helping start YOUR farm business in a practical and bootstrap kind of way that benefits you and the community you serve.

Our philosophy...

If we can't build a sustainable business based off of real demand & organic growth, then we're asking for trouble.

Through the products we create, through our collective business experience with our network, let's come together and bootstrap this food revolution!

There are lots of ways to get started.

That can be a blessing or a curse. We wanted to offer up a few practical approaches to starting small with a bootstrapping mindset.

When Brandon founded Bootstrap Farmer, many of the products created were designed to add additional revenue streams for farmers.

For example, exchangeable 5x5 microgreen trays keeps your market customers coming week after week.

Colorful grow bags makes for a marketable booth and a potential side hustle of swapping out seasonal grow bags for clients in your community.

The possibilities are endless, and presented below are a few of our ideas.

We hope this inspires you to make them your own.

Nervous about approaching chefs?

Watch our behind the scenes documentary with Profound Microfarms. We visit some of Dallas' top chefs.

While watching, note the relationship building & feedback Jeff is eliciting from each of his clients.
