WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

Austin and Harrison Steed originally built PickTrace for Fairfield Farms, their own family’s blueberry and avocado farm in Southern California. By helping their family farm, they realized the full extent of the complexities and inefficiencies in agriculture related to manual payroll calculation, labor law compliance, and productivity tracking. 

Their vision? Revolutionize the industry with a complete farm management solution. It wasn’t long before interest in their software solution organically grew among neighboring growers, and a company was born.

Today, the PickTrace team is 20+ strong and just moved into a beautiful new HQ in downtown Glendale, Los Angeles. Our software is used by tens of thousands of farm workers each day across some of the largest berry, citrus, and apple growers in the United States as well as in Mexico, Peru, Chile, and Australia. 

PickTrace is a YCombinator-backed company and in 2018 raised Series A funding from an investment firm with a track record of building multi-billion dollar software companies.
