What is your vision for the company?

Barn2Door emerged from the idea that Farmers should profit more from the products they sell—without a middleman marking up prices.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Since we are a fast-paced startup, there's constantly collaboration between departments. Across the business, people are willing to jump in and contribute their talents to get things done!
