Farm Hack is about enabling sustainable farms to build, create, or obtain the scale appropriate tools they need. We bring together farmers and makers together to document tool online and in person.n nWe are excited to engage more Makers with our community, to show them how we've taken open-source principles and applied them to farm tools. We hope to inspire Makers to channel some of their energies into projects that can help solve problems faced by their local farm and to attend Farm Hack events in their region!
