About Us

Farmer Built. 

Founded in 2012, Farmbrite is an agriculture technology (AgTech) company that's mission driven to help more people get started in and succeed in agriculture. Founded from our small farm after 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, we discovered that many farmers were still using pen and paper or a hodge-podge of spreadsheets to manage their operations.


So with a passion for technology, agriculture and sustainability we created Farmbrite with the goal of developing an easy to use, cost effective complete farm management system to help farmers and ranchers be more organized, sustainable and successful. 

Today our software helps diverse crop and livestock producers from across the globe with a complete and holistic set of tools to more efficiently plan, manage, track, report and sell online (from seed-to-sale). We provide the tools to help farmers 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, some elbow grease and a little knowhow. We have purposefully not taken outside investments so that we can keep our customer 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.

We love helping farmers, ranchers and other supporting food organizations to feed the world and we hope we can help you too.

Purpose Driven.

We believe in measuring our success by the impact we have, not just the revenue we make.  Our mission it to:

Help Feed the World delivering customer-centric tools that enable farmers and ranchers to be more efficient, produce higher yields more sustainably and reach more customers.

In addition to helping commercial producers we also work with farm educators and food non-profits who are helping to solve food insecurity and create more sustainable farming practices. 

Our Philosophy

Create powerful, but easy-to-use and cost effective solutions to help farmers and ranchers be more efficient, sustainable and successful. 

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 listen and care about our customers and we develop our software with their needs in mind. 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 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!
