Farmer’s Friend, LLC – Supplying Innovative Small Farm Equipment

October 29th, 2018 | Posted By: Stephen Douglass | Posted in Suppliers & Vendors

Farmer’s Friend, LLC is located in Williamsport, Tennessee.  We buy from them online.  We first became aware of them when a few of the progenitors of the sustainable produce farming movement, such as Eliot Coleman and J.M. Fortier, began raving about the Farmer’s Friend Quick-Cut Greens Harvester.  This tool saves man-hours ten fold when it comes to harvesting salad greens, baby winter greens, and even micro-greens with the optional bench attachment. ( Check out Curtis Stone’s review of it )  Farmer’s Friend went on to build an exceptional propane flame weeder, aptly named “the Pyroweeder.”   We buy all of our weed suppressing silage tarps from Farmer’s Friend as well.   And, while we developed our own caterpillar tunnel to our unique specs with our great local friends, Williamson Greenhouses, the Farmer’s Friend Caterpillar Tunnel may be what they are best known for, and, that same group of famous sustainable farmers like J.M. Fortier, Curtis Stone, and others, highly recommend it and use it for their own season extension needs.

Farmer’s Friend is a company making high-quality, innovative products for small farmers.  We have found their customer service to be fantastic.  You can actually speak to the person that invented and/or assembled the tool you are using!  Imagine that.  In one instance, the shipper damaged one of our silage tarps in transit and Farmer’s Friend had a replacement sent out that very day at no charge to us.  We greatly admire this company and the people that work there.  They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Take one look at their “Team” page on their website and you see genuinely happy people.  We look forward to their next great innovation.
