It's All In a Name

AntFarm:

We've been asked countless times why we chose the name AntFarm. In a nut shell: "Ant" is an iconic example of hard work, community mindedness, persistence and perseverance. "Farm" is a source of nourishment, skill and growth.

The Might of One

Have you ever felt really small and alone?  Kind of how an ant might appear to be.   If you really watch and observe you will find out these little guys are pretty impressive.  Did you know that if an ant were our size they could lift a car and run faster than a horse.  Pretty mighty huh!

The Power of Many

What we can achieve as a group is boundless.  This act of coming together and working as a team is empowering and rewarding.  Ask an ant!
