Wealthy Farmer Network
Wealth is built with an implementable plan.
The mission of the Wealthy Farmer Network is to help farmers become wealthy farmers.
The Wealthy Farmer Network utilizes a fully integrated approach to bringing global produce trade demand to all farmers. This trade demand exists in pulp, bioplastics, fibers, fuels, energy and food. Many of these sectors do not have enough (or any) supply of biomass or crop generated produce in some cases to meet trade demand. Sustainable Aviation Fuels and Bioplastics are two examples. Food is another. Soon Timber, Organic Fertilizers and even soils will be in short supply.
Wealth begins by understanding markets, supply and demand, and how to bring that demand to the farmers profitably and sustainably.
We are focused in Asia at this time as tropical agricultural economies are perfectly positioned to capture many of these global markets if the production (Cultivation) capacity is organized and connected. The logic and economics of the locally produced natural resources such as timber, fuel, food and soils brings considerable cost savings and efficiencies to farms and agricultural sectors.
Farmers are foundation economic infrastructure for national economies and national security. Having wealthy farmers builds value through natural resources into the economy. Farm to food or farm to furniture, the value increase from having these resources is 3 - 5 times the value ex-farm. A growing economy should be producing as many of these natural resources as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Policy makers should take note. Here in the forestry and agriculture lies your economic growth solutions, your carbon emission solutions and many of your employment and environmental answers you are looking for.
The global market demand for biomass or produce is enormous. Yet we have very little in the way of bioplastics and fibers. Why? This relates to the cost of production relative to chemical alternatives. Chemicals relate directly to fossil fuel prices and soon the environmental costs of these chemical fibers and plastics. There is coming an inflection point of transition now as fossil fuels drive climate change and environmental damage with an increasing cost profile as raw materials and end products. Moving into these markets are sustainable alternatives. Bioplastics, plant fibers, even organic living soil fertilizers as viable commercial replacements for chemicals.
Wealthy Farmers Network recognizes these changes and opportunities as essential for the planet, the farmers and for economies. We share the ideas and opportunities with farmers, policy makers, the concerned public and active investors or philanthropists.
Our business model is open source expertise and models, people helping people and the planet with rewards not only from the kudos but for the future, better food, a planet that remains havitable, economies that function better and a world of abundant energy and resources for all.
How do we do this? We organize and align demand through trade contracts and supporting finance which we then coordinate farming cultivation capacity to service. This requires efficiencies and cultivation standards to meet international standards which can only be coordinated by a party that recognizes the value of well funded and resourced farmers who produce to high standards through the use of modern farming technology and techniques.
Efficiency is effective.
Producing (cultivation) to demand side trade volume matches production to demand. Implement standards and you have reliable farm floor pricing strength. This is further reinforced by implementing 'shelf life' process for perishables. This is simply making a market. Introduce cost savings such as organic soils and biomass trade with the farmer, modern equipment, efficient logistics and planning and the commercial picture for farmers improves all the time. Bring in Conservation Funding and Forestry Finance and the farm now has multiple long term contracts that build revenue health and long term wealth. Add in soil health and locally produced organic fertilizers which maintain the production value and capabilities of the farm and the value of that farm as a going concern to the farmer and the national economy increases accordingly.
This is not the classic supply side farm production in the hope of demand which runs into quality and then price dropping problems due to oversupply and poor standards from a disorganized farming sector.
Policy makers - your farmers could rebuild their soil health with organic soils. Organic high carbon living soil fertilizers supplied to farmers decouple the farmers from international chemical fertilizers and literally apply millions of tonnes of carbon directly into the soils which is where nature captures it. This is your COP26 emissions target solution.
Better still the technology that makes the soils is self funding and an economic catalyst. It reduces farm input costs while building farm revenues and wealth as a foundation of your economy. The technology re-purposes multiple problem waste streams and provides the soils to grow lumber, vegetables, even fuels to organic standards in commercial volume. Does your economy have that now?
Organic soils fix water loss issues and flooding in part or completely. See Infinity Soils for more information.
Coordinated farm cultivation capacity can produce oil, biomass and even sugars for gasoline from farms. This is surface carbon emissions and carbon sequestration which when coupled to organic soils is a net carbon reduction for emissions. Most importantly this replaces the need to dig up deep ground carbon fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil. These make up 87% of all global emissions. Most importantly of all, these are all domestically produced natural resources by your farmers for your economy with locally produced organic fertilizers and natural resources. All the economic benefits remain for the country. Environmental risk is reduced significantly. Foreign currency reserves are not dissipated to pay for imports. All the value generated remains domestic. If it is imported, your balance of payments get a healthy boost.
How much is this worth to a country? How many farmers do you have and how much land under cultivation? What are you producing and what do you need to produce will then give a very informative economic baseline from which economic growth can be built simply by applying much of the simple strategies we employ in our plans.
We are available to consult and advise as required to bring fresh thinking to these very important issues.
We also welcome questions, suggestions and comparisons from any interested parties. Email us or follow us through our journey with our farmers. We are learning a lot, maybe you will also.
Safe and rewarding farming to you all!

Fixed Asset (Long Term) Wealth Crops
Contracted forestry and agroforestry farming brings long term revenues with equitable harvest share. This builds core wealth and creditworthiness for the farms no and long into the future.
This builds national economies through natural resource development with significant future vertial national economic value.
Forestry has the most potential to build core farm and rural wealth.
Value Crops Planned to Develop Wealth
Wealthy Farmers Network analyze and consider carefully all the value crops we bring to our programs. These crops integrate into the farm crop mix commercially and practically. We premise the crop mix on soil health which relates directly to the productive capacity and types of crops suitable to the land. We mix long term Forestry and short term Agriculture into this commercial and practical crop blend that best matches the optimum production potential of the farms while meeting the farmer and market needs. Retired farmers prefer the slower lifestyle choice while younger farmers prefer to work harder to chase the revenues by example.
This optimized crop mix and commercial plan for the farm follows wealth management based methodologies. They succeed in all other applications and are being targeted towards all workers now. Farming, especially wealthy successful farmers becomes a huge wealth generation sector if it is properly organized and optimized. This makes each farm more valuable and productive and fun, working hard and not earning money is not fun.
Each of these successful farms build natural resource thereby building capacity for the economy for domestic and international trade. Maximizing the value of the produce for trade by meeting minimal cultivation standards makes sense. Optimizing the crops grown and how these crops interface on the farm and through commercial outcomes makes further sense. Having a plan for the farm to focus on cash crops but trend towards forestry over ten or twenty years is more than great farming, it builds a pension for the farmer and a huge future natural resource for the nation. Simple and logical when you think about it but planning this out and forecasting it and then optimizing variations on this strategy by people not familiar with such calculations, technology and accounting is never going to happen. With modern technology and an empathetic experienced Agent working through such issues with farmers, then it becomes more and more realistic to millions of farmers.
Most western economies have Farm Agents. They are not cheap. But they create many times their cost in value return to a farmer by literally keeping him current with market place developments, new technologies, new regulations and of course as a resource for problem solving. With modern technology, literally in many cases through a phone, farmers can have access to crop cultivation support, market pricing, cultivation and forestry farming contracts and all the expertise needed to make each crop and their broader farm a success now and long into the future.
Over 25% of the UK farms are under threat of bankruptcy from poor cash flow. They have the expertise and motivation to produce value for the economy with the resources - the land. Is it really that hard to better organize and make profitable these farms? We don't think so. Forestry, fuel and energy crops, soils and carbon, even conservation. All of these opportunities are being missed through lack of coordination, planning and understanding. This is common all over the world from subsistence farmers to modern farmers in the USA, Australia and Europe.
This is the big role for Wealthy Farmers Network we feel. Showing that fuel can be grown as oils, sugars or biomass on the surface of the planet while providing lucrative long term contract farming revenues to farmers while rebuilding the soils and moving the economy with locally produced energy without supply side risks from importation and handling. This also, critically for the planet, stops the extraction of deep ground carbon fossil fuels. This is the big critical change that all countries need to make. Transition to sustainable crop based energy sources and stop using fossil fuels. Think about how much money that change would make to your national economy! We would love to hear from economists in regard to this. We will provide some thinking and real time examples for consideration in due course.
We use value crops. What is a value crop? A value crop is a crop that can produce a floor price for our farmers of at least $400 per hectare per year under our contract terms without farming risk. These crops are able to further meet all the planting, harvest, logistics and processing costs to trade sale and these crops provide produce for global markets with considerable demand. We will be adding more crops. We have a number of forestry species for the Farmed Forestry Contracts. We currently use Sweet Sorghum and Industrial Hemp Varieties in rotation for our Agricultural Contracts. We are also getting incredible results with rice grown without water saturation. Aerobic, not anaerobic. 100% Organic. We will soon have results from Organic Fertilized Sugar Cane trials that are scheduled to expand to 8 million tonnes of cubic organic fertilizers and 200,000 hectares over the next 24 months in Asia. We have oil based energy crop contracts under development along with large scale forestry and agroforesty and agriculture projects in a number of countries. More information on this to follow.
We are excited about the future and the solutions for farmers, economies and the planet. Join us on this journey. It is fun.
Current Asset (Short Term) Agriculture.
Integrating value from short term agriculture, crops that generate money within a year, develops farm cash flow. This cash flow is further improved through reduced costs, better floor price contracts and better crop choices relative to markets. Current crop mix type and allocation forms the yearly income foundation to the Wealthy Farmer Program for farms.
Wealthy Farmer Planning
Applying an implementable optimized crop mix plan relative to soil health, access to markets, farm capabilities and profitability is at the core of the strategy to develop a wealth development strategy outcome for the farm.
The Wealthy Farmer Program will soon deliver to farmer's phones the plan, the crop mix, the financial forecasts and the technical support for each tree and crop including harvest schedule and revenue forecasts to each farm.
Attaching planned farms to markets drives better decisions and builds wealth in the sector and the farms.
The Wealthy Farmer Program is a Rewarding Planet Opensource Methodology for farmers to build efficiencies and value into their farms.
The Wealthy Farmer Network is developing the Thailand and Laos Cultivation Capacity towards the global trade contracts.
