JOIN THE LISTSERV
Welcome to the Queer Farmer Network!
We are a dispersed network of current, lapsed, and aspiring farmers, gardeners, growers, herbalists, tenders of land, food revolutionaries, and more spread across the so-called USA.
The QFN was formed in 2018 by a group of friends & comrades in the upper midwest to build community among queer farmers and to reflect on and interrupt racist, capitalist, and heteropatriarchal legacies in Agriculture.
Through 100% grassroots & volunteer efforts, the network hosts in-person gatherings, communicates via an online listserv, and shares information and resources with one another via our Job Board, Directory, Field Notes, and more. Learn more about the network here!
The QFN Listserv is made up of queer farmer and adjacent community members from all over the so-called USA, and has been an open source space to share resources and exchange information since 2018. Join today to get in the loop about upcoming gatherings, community offerings, and connect directly with a widespread community of queer farmers!

Stand in solidarity with Black and Indigenous farmers by supporting their land-based endeavors. It is essential that all farmers acknowledge the stolen land we currently occupy and how our food system was built on the stolen labor of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, and people of color. The Reparations Map hosted by Soul Fire Farm and created by the Northeast Farmers of Color Network is a great tool for finding BIPOC farms and projects to directly share resources with.
