We’re bringing data to your backyard farm
We see so many growers start by farming on a small scale. Some have plans to expand into larger commercial operations. Some are trying to feed their families with fresher, healthier food. Whatever your reason for farming at home, we’re here to support you.
We believe doing things the right way is important, no matter how small the farm. We want you to be able to plan your production with the same tools commercial growers use. Now you can. We’re making Agrilyst available to smaller growers with our new Hobby Plan.
What counts as a hobby farm?
Farms are eligible for the Hobby Plan if they’re less than 1,000 square feet and are not operating commercially. If you have a few NFT racks in your garage, are a non-profit, are growing some plants out in your backyard, have a test unit with plans for future expansion, or have a small greenhouse you can sign up for the new Hobby Plan.
Is this just for hydroponic systems?
Nope. We want to make our tools accessible for all home growers. Whether you’re growing basil hydroponically or zucchini in soil, Agrilyst Hobby can work for you.
Why is data important for your hobby farm?
Agrilyst helps growers (big and small) understand how crops are performing. With Agrilyst, hobbyist growers will be able to store seeding plan details and create crop schedules, stay on top of work orders with crop tasks, record notes related to crops, and store harvest information. Agrilyst will use this information to plan your harvests over a 30-day period, understand your plant yields, pick high-performing varieties, and more. Data helps you gain control of your farm.
What features will be available on this plan?
For a limited time, all of Agrilyst’s features will be available to hobby farms. Only farms less than 1,000 square feet and operating non-commercially will be able to sign up for a Hobby Plan.
How can I sign up?
You can sign up for the Hobby Plan here. You’ll have access to the platform right away. When you’re ready to subscribe, you’ll see a green button in the upper right that says “Upgrade Now.” Click that button, enter you’re payment information, and you’re all set! You can go ahead and start adding your seeding plans, crop data, and more.
Can I upgrade if I want to keep all of the features?
Of course! In a few weeks, many of our commercial features will no longer be available for hobby farms. If you’d like to keep using those features, you can upgrade to one of our larger plans by heading to Settings and then to Your Subscription.
