Today’s family farms face more challenges in the grain markets than ever before.

“The ability to find better grain deals and understand significant market movements continues to be a challenge for all farmers, but with FarmLead, producers are understanding how to navigate these murky waters,” said Brennan Turner, President, and CEO of FarmLead. “For farmers who are a part of Family Farms Group Canada, this partnership gives them a huge advantage in helping them sell their grain.”
From market analysis, grain testing and pricing recommendations, to accessing more qualified buyers and ensuring the best possible price for grain, FarmLead aims to provide end-to-end value throughout the grain marketing life cycle. It is the industry leader for online grain sales, with volumes traded through its award-winning marketplace growing at 700 percent year-over-year.
