Farmer Built.

Purpose Driven.

Who we are

Established in 2013 and forged from a passion for technology, agriculture and sustainability, we recognized a need for our own small farm to keep better records in order to better understand our agricultural business.  In the search for a farm record keeping solution to help us get more organized, we discovered that many farmers were still using pen and paper or a hodge-podge of spreadsheets to manage their operations.

We build technology that supports ranchers and farmers as they rebuild soil and biodiversity and heal the land.  We provide the tools to help them be more profitable and support themselves so they can remain in farming and support their families and communities.

Farmbrite is a completely self funded company built from a passion with some elbow grease and a little knowhow. We have purposefully not taken outside funding so that our customer is always at the center of our development choices. Maybe it's taken us a little longer to grow but we're willing to take our time to do what's best to help our customers.

Our Philosophy

We believe strongly in the importance of supporting local farmers and knowing where our food comes from. We know that farming is hard work and that the right tool can make all the difference. We develop our software with a customer centric mindset. We want to get out of the farmers way by making data collection painless and useful so that they can spend more time doing what they love, farming.

We have an altruistic spirit and offer programs to support non-profits working to end food deserts and food insecurity. We feel it's important not only to be working towards our own company’s growth but also to support communities in need.

Farmbrite develops software tools for farmers and ranchers to make their jobs easier so that they can continue growing food in a sustainable way while supporting themselves and their communities.


Farmbrite was founded by husband and wife team Ian and Janine Russell.  Together they bring over 30 years of software development, sales, marketing, management, customer service and agriculture experience.

Based near Boulder Colorado they are focused and committed to helping farmers and ranchers be more sustainable and successful.

Happy Farming!
