What is Emergence?

Emergence is where the future of farming finds its voice.

We're bringing you the latest farmer interviews and perspectives, along with unbiased tools, stories and opportunities to grow your operation. Emergence champions the pursuit of farming smarter and more independently -- economically, agronomically, and technologically.

Emergence is a Farmers Business Network platform that was created to bring you independent, transparent and unbiased insights and information that can help your farm win.

FBN is relentlessly and optimistically committed to creating a future of agriculture that is Farmers First® -- that means everything we do is for farmers and by farmers. We believe firmly that farmers need to be put first in the farm economy. We believe that family farms and your future profitability need to be defended. We believe that the industry should work for you and not the other way around. And we believe that by creating a network of independent farms, we can create a much better future for farmers.

Our Core Values

Farmers First® Mentality
We're fighting to give your farm a level playing field through better information, new insights, more transparency and better business opportunities. We believe that the industry should work for you and not the other way around.
Data-Driven Insights
Emergence features practical and relevant stories, trends, videos and resources that can only come from the independent, data-backed system FBN is creating to give your farm the freedom and choice you deserve.
Candor + Honesty
Shouldn’t farming get better for farmers? Emergence digs deep and explores ideas, innovations and interests that celebrate more choice, freedom and fairness in the agricultural ecosystem -- so you can take back control of your farm's future.
Unbiased Voices
The unique and honest voices you'll hear on Emergence come from our farmer members as well as the many experts and leaders who make up the FBN team, and a number of like-minded partners in agriculture -- all are focused on bringing farmers unbiased opportunities, so you can farm profitably in today's global economy.
Survival of the family farm means finding new opportunities, revealing outdated or unfair practices, and revealing ineffective and underperforming methods, so that you can find greater financial security. On Emergence, you'll read, watch and listen to stories about what works, and what doesn't, as well as how and why.
It takes time to find tools and technology you can actually use. We'll do the dirty work for you, making sense out of complicated or complex topics, and investigating the tangible impact and ROI of tools over toys. We'll share what's practical, even if it isn't always popular among "the industry."
