App Helps Farmers Earn Income from Equipment

Midwest Messenger reported on a new business called Haggle, that helps farmers earn income from their assets. The company offers an app that lets farmers buy and sell equipment, as well as lend and borrow equipment and book and hire services. The app is also expanding to offer bartering. Nathan Greuel, owner and operator of Haggle, reports that one user traded a cow for use of a tractor. Others traded grain storage space for a grain spot contract. Greuel envisions users bartering the use of expensive and rarely used equipment. The company currently serves areas of Illinois and Iowa.
