It all started in Skagit Valley, Washington
David and Connor’s dad became particularly fed up with seeing their potato crops damaged by repeated timing errors, equipment failures, and miscommunication with his irrigation teams. His frustration significantly grew due to the lack of options available for monitoring and controlling his farm equipment, specifically their irrigation reels. He asked David & Connor to find a better solution, and shortly thereafter, FarmHQ was born.
Since that moment, we’ve spent every day designing, building, and testing FarmHQ during several growing seasons on irrigation reels and water pumps across farms in the Skagit Valley. We’re proud to say that we’ve built a bolt-on system for farmers who want fewer headaches when irrigating, the ability to protect their crops cost-efficiently, and a desire for more time back in their hands.
Presently, we’re a growing agricultural technology company helping farmers who grow annual crops streamline their operations. We continue to focus on simplicity above all, by providing easy-to-use solutions that help farmers monitor and control their mobile irrigation systems in real time.
