In the Field Consultants

The World’s First "Just Tell Me What I Need to Know" Farm Resource Exclusively Built for Small Farms Looking to Free Up More Time and Grow More Profitable

Finally! For all who are doubting: “Is there a sustainable model that can lift me out of the hamster wheel and into a profitable business that can support me and my family”

Now, hard-working, independent, small-acreage farmers can rely on a 24/7 fluff-free resource and get all the TEMPLATES, TRAININGS and SOPs that cut hundreds—even thousands—of hours out of trial-and-error guessing.  

The R.I.P.E.N. Roadmap for Small Farms Is About One Thing: Freedom


Small Farm U is built on the foundation of the R.I.P.E.N. Roadmap, a proprietary business model created by In The Field Consultant over the last 15 years! (and the painful lessons learned and solved, so you can skip a few of the hard knocks)

Everything about Small Farm U was engineered to take the wheel-spinning out of the already long, hard process of farming.

The doors are only open for a few days (We're closing this Thursday Night !). 

When you join , you'll not only get a say in the specific training we continue to build out over the coming months, but you'll also lock in your rates for as long as you're a subscriber (the fees will rise over time, yet your rates are locked). You can cancel at any time. 

As always, feel free to contact me personally if you have any questions. - Michael K.


What's in the Small Farm University?

SFU Logo - Oval



  • A comprehensive “Core Course” (in the works) built entirely on our 5 Propriety Building Blocks of a successful, sustainable, and PROFITABLE farm — the R.I.P.E.N. Roadmap 
  • Stay competitive with content continually get refreshed and richer as the rapidly changing landscape of farming constantly evolves
  • Rapid How-To Mini-Courses (coming later 2017, continuously) get right to the meat of the specific problems small farms face 
  • Tools and templates, like our jang seeder calculator, the Profit Per Sq. Ft Week Calculator, and the SFU Employee Handbook Template. More time-rescuing templates will be coming with your feedback
  • Resource guides- looking for the best places to get silage tarps? What about a greens bagging table that is GAP approved? What about those hard to find soil amendments? We’ve got an extensive list already with suppliers and producers of the best products, at the lowest prices…  
  • 2 Q+A Calls Every Month. No TWO Farms are the same. Imagine taking your specific hang-ups to people who can offer some real insight. Weekly calls allow you to submit any question for us to answer in a live, video call. If you can’t make the live, you can always access the replays at any time. And if I don't know the answer, I'll ping my network and get you the answer. 
  • Community - We never could have built our farm without the extensive network of farmers around the country that we relied on for advice and support. This was a vetted, "Said-in-the-room-stays-in-the-room", group that solved pressing problems together. => The biggest problem I have with the online groups is that some people tear down others or spread negativity like it's their job. We're all in this together and anyone who misbehaves will be evicted. Farming is hard enough. There is no "dumb question." SFU is a safe place all about support.

[Michael] has a real sense of farming foundations for success. In 24 hours, I knew that I was going to be farming differently that I had been in the last 10 years
