It all started in Skagit Valley, Washington

In 2020

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.

Our CTO and Lead Software Engineer Working in the Field


FarmHQ is committed to helping farmers increase efficiency and reduce stress with the right amount of technology. Fostering trust with the farming community is our top priority and we do so by creating practical solutions that put money and hours back into the farmer’s pocket, while making a positive impact on the planet.


We are dedicated to being the reliable digital partner for the modern farm. FarmHQ bridges the gap between the latest technology and the difficult, dirty work that farmers do every day.
