We believe cooperation beats competition, any day. From barn raisings to crop mobs, having each other’s back is the basis of a strong farming community.
Leslie Touzeau of the Missouri Young Farmers Coalition says it best, “Farming is hard…if we’re going to be successful, we have to learn to work together. “

SIGN UP to launch a local NYFC chapter.
For the last three years, young farmers in mid-Missouri have come together monthly for potlucks, crop mobs, and farm tours. Before forming the Missouri Young Farmers Coalition, many felt isolated as young, sustainable farmers in a state full of larger growers. By working together, they feel their operations (and mental health!) have greatly improved.
