About AgriSecure

Our Story

AgriSecure was founded by farmers for farmers. Each of them led the way on their own multi-generational family farms to transition from conventional to organic production.

At first our founders struggled with the long-term planning, the complex execution, the detailed recordkeeping — all the headaches that come with figuring out how to run an organic operation on the fly. But they built up their agronomic knowledge. Combined with proprietary processes, a technology platform built for organic farms, and a systems-based approach, they soon realized they were prospering while others continued to falter.

Looking at their communities, they felt a responsibility to help more farmers benefit from the organic program they had developed. Today they are helping family farms like yours become profitable and stay profitable through organics.

As your partner, AgriSecure can provide the guidance and support you need to start or scale your organic crop production. We can help you create a brighter future and a profitable family farm that can be passed down for many generations to come.
